HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Proserv, a leading energy services company, announced today it will present a series of global workshops to demonstrate Proserv's Artemis 2G (A2G), its next generation subsea electronics module for control and monitoring communications as a result of a successful event held in Houston.
Workshops are to be held in Stavanger, Aberdeen and London over the next three months with plans to hold other regional events in 2015.
"The reaction and feedback we get from customers at these events is crucial to helping them understand our latest intelligent subsea technology and gives us the opportunity to better understand customer needs, which can lead to future refinements that improve functionality and performance of the system," said Alan Peek, Vice President for Subsea Controls and Communications.
Approximately forty subsea experts representing operators and engineering consultants attended the 2-day event in Houston. Presenters provided attendees with valuable insight into the crucial benefits of the A2G system. Live simulations were carried out at the company's new Technology and Training Center in Houston, with a direct connection into a live test set-up with full specification equipment, which was based at the company's Subsea Controls Center of Excellence (CoE) in Great Yarmouth, UK.
A2G is the latest development from Proserv and is designed for use in both greenfield and brownfield production applications. The powerful system delivers communications data rates in excess of any other available product on multi-drop copper and provides a viable alternative to fiber optic subsea communications. Combined with highly flexible and adaptive inbuilt signal optimization software, this enables the A2G system to be used as a co-existing solution on brownfield umbilicals with other communications or power systems, including high voltage subsea power.
The technology-proven A2G maximizes flexibility and optimizes functionality, providing more powerful communications and instrument support. Furthermore, this technology increases accessibility for support through its webpage interface, manages obsolescence via fully in-house modular build and test control, and provides advanced configuration and diagnostics to deliver unparalleled adaptable communications.
Peek added: "With the extraction of subsea oil and gas reserves becoming increasingly challenging in deeper and more isolated areas, there is a greater need for even more data from subsea instrumentation to provide operators with the information necessary to make effective decisions and optimize production. Longer step-out distances between subsea fields and host facilities also requires improved communications and power technologies are needed to enable production in remote locations.
"Proserv's A2G has been developed as an advanced intelligent management tool which, as a result, is more flexible and optimizes functionality. It is effectively the brain of the subsea and control operations. Unlike other tools, our A2G controls all of the communication systems and enables the power, speed and accessibility necessary for the control and monitoring of challenging subsea infrastructures and environments."
Daniel Gaspard, Vice President of Subsea Sales & Business Development, said: "Proserv's subsea-production system offering is evolving to meet the technical challenges faced within deeper water, marginal fields and harsh environments. A2G is the next evolution of our field-proven subsea electronics module (SEM) and in addition to being designed to meet the industry's technical challenges, will deliver the most capability and the highest communications speed of any SEM on the market today. We are extremely proud to have this technology in our portfolio and we are looking forward to helping our customers solve their technical challenges."
The next in this series of international A2G Technology Days will be held in Stavanger, Norway on 24th and 25th September 2014, followed by events in the UK later in the year in Aberdeen and London. For further information, visit www.proserv.com and click on Technology Roadshow.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
