Subsea Controls Selection

ARC has been conducting research related to oil & gas technology for over two decades.  Recently ARC conducted detailed research specifically for subsea controls.  Based on this research, ARC analysts have developed a comprehensive set of criteria to help you select the best subsea controls available in the market.

Subsea Controls Evaluation and Selection for Oil & Gas Production Enhancement

With an increase in energy consumption across the globe, the focus on offshore drilling has been increasing.  The major oil & gas companies have invested on deepwater and ultra-deepwater projects.  The amount of data being transmitted from a subsea installation may also increase considerably.  There is a risk that the introduction of new equipment and an increase in data will introduce faults into the control system.  It will be important to ensure adequate independence between critical functions (control functions and safety functions) and monitoring functions so that the reliability of the critical functions is not compromised.

The outstanding characteristics of subsea control systems in improving oil/gas recovery ratio have become the main reasons for the selection of resource development in deepwater.  Nowadays, the advantages of high efficiency, economic benefits, and mature techniques of subsea control systems have already been accepted by many oil companies.

Subsea Controls Need to Handle Increasing Amount of Data
