Real-time data

John E. Chance & Associates (Houston), in conjunction with Spectra Precision, have developed a software package to allow real-time visualization of large multi-parameter data sets. Data typically supplied by Chance geophysical surveys coupled with as-built and design information provides the basis of a virtual 3D environment. Hydrovista provides the ability to view different perspectives of the same environment simultaneously or ship different perspectives to different parts of the vessel through the video distribution system as requested. ROV time can be optimized by providing 3D navigation capabilities in low visibility situations. The package also provides a platform for pipeline route selection in complex deepwater areas. Hydrovista aids in minimizing the impact of hazards and free-spans to reduce the overall installation and engineering project cost.

4D Seismic

Continuum Resources (Houston) is promoting its 4D seismic services in a new brochure. The complete 4D-analysis service includes feasibility studies, acquisition & processing consulting, immersive data fusion, and research & development. Continuum offers a 4D analysis that leads to improved 3D seismic techniques. Results of 4D feasibility analyses can be applied to 3D projects. Normal 3D seismic processing methods may not be sufficient for 4D. 3D footprint attenuation methods are essential to preserve the 4D signal. Processing methods that integrate multiple time-lapse 3D data are a distinct advantage. Continuum's 4D processing can determine and recommend processing sequences or methods and provide Management and Quality Control of work in progress.

Suction anchor system

Delmar Systems (Broussard, Louisiana) introduces the Suction Anchor System. According to Delmar, suction installation reduces the resistance to penetration and increases the capacity of the mooring anchors to withstand wind and hurricane loading conditions. An ROV is used to perform simple valve operations; pressure can be adjusted within the anchor compartments to produce changes in soil effective stresses. Delmar claims increased vertical capacity of the Suction Anchor System allows for reduction in the mooring pattern and minimizes avoidance problems in crowded subsea zones.
