Global Wellhead Equipment Market: Notable Developments

  • In 2016, Ramboll did an intensive research for the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate. The focus of the study was the development of unmanned wellhead platform. Such platform is currently in use in the North Sea while several others are under consideration for different licenses on the Norwegian costal shelf. Ramboll’s research provide both pros and cons of the concept and concluded that unmanned wellhead platforms may offer more efficient development solutions with regards to production and overall expense.
  • In February 2018, Subsea 7 and Schlumberger Ltd sat together to with a motive to form a joint venture. The idea was to build upon the brand name of Subsea Integration Alliance that was set up in 2015. Currently, the Subsea Intelligence Alliance combines the subsea umbilical, riser, and flowline systems (SURF) provided by Subsea 7 with the subsurface expertise, processing systems, and production systems provide by OneSubsea.
  • In 2019, Bake Hughes heavily invested in enhancing their current digital prowess. Their main focus on building credible and reliable technologies powered with AI, machine learning, and IoT.
