As oil and gas exploration activities move ever further from existing infrastructure, the challenges of providing reliable power supplies for sub-sea equipment are increasing. Traditional solutions use diesel-fuelled generation or highly costly umbilicals and tie-backs.
AWS Ocean Energy’s Waveswing™ sub-sea power buoys offer Oil & Gas operators a sustainable and reliable power source at a competitive cost, whilst avoiding operational problems of re-fuelling and providing the additional benefit of reducing oilfield carbon emissions.
Employing the power solutions offered by AWS Ocean Energy can improve the economics of marginal fields and provide long-term power for monitoring of decommissioned assets whilst playing a key role in meeting emissions reduction targets and improving corporate profile.
AWS Ocean Energy’s Waveswing™ subsea power buoys are available in ratings from 10 to 250kW and hence are ideal for providing power and a communications link to typical remote sub-sea applications including:
Of course, there are many other applications where the low operational cost offered by the Waveswing™ technology will allow reduced overall operating costs and optimal use of sub-sea assets.
The AWS Waveswing can offer operators a safe, reliable and cost-effective solution to remote power needs which can reduce overall operational cost and improve in-field performance whilst also reducing carbon footprint and enhancing corporate reputation.
The energetic wave environment in which many oilfields are located is a major contributor to cost and risk. Using wave energy to enhance oilfield performance provides and excellent opportunity to turn the environment to the advantage of the oil & gas industry.
