The Hibernia Enhanced Oil Recovery laboratory was developed to support research and identify new ways to optimize oil recovery for the offshore industry in Newfoundland and Labrador. Research efforts in this laboratory, led by Dr. Lesley James, Associate Professor at Memorial University of Newfoundland and Chevron Chair in Petroleum Engineering, focus on enhanced oil recovery, which is utilized to increase the amount of crude oil extracted from an oil field and extend the field life.
In June 2017, E/V Nautilus launched its third season in the Pacific Ocean exploring Canadian waters with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). ONC operates world-leading cabled ocean observatories that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to a broad suite of subsea instruments. The ONC NEPTUNE observatory installation, off Vancouver Island’s west coast, allow scientists to operate instruments remotely and receive data at their home laboratories anywhere on the globe in real time. This expedition launched numerous dives with ROV Hercules and ROV Argus to the Clayoquot Slope site of the NEPTUNE cabled observatory, to install and test new sensors including an accelerometer for earthquake early warning detection. -------------------------------------- E/V Nautilus is exploring unknown re...

Operation HARDTACK I consisted of 35 nuclear tests conducted at the Pacific Proving Ground between April 28 and August 18, 1958. These tests included balloon, surface, barge, underwater, and rocket-borne high-altitude tests. The first test, Yucca, was a nuclear device attached to a helium balloon launched from the USS Boxer near Enewetak Atoll. HARDTACK I consisted of three portions; the first was the development of nuclear weapons. This was a continuation of the type of testing conducted at Enewetak and Bikini during the early and mid-1950s. In these tests, the weapons development laboratories, Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory and the University of California Radiation Laboratory (later named Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratory), detonated their experimental devices, while the Departm...
Learn why sulfate removal is useful in this video from the OTC 2015, as discussed by Matt Boczkowski from GE Oil & Gas. Sulfate removal can reduce scaling, reduce hardness and minmize souring and H2S. Explore how the GE SWSR Nanofiltration Membrane can be used in the successful removal of sulfate, magnesium and calcium. Third layer allowing the cleaning not to be so harsh.
Through its energy production systems unit, FMC Technologies offers subsea drilling and production systems for the exploration and production of oil and gas. Its energy processing systems segment makes fluid control, measurement, loading, separation, material handling, and blending systems. FMC Technologies operates about 20 manufacturing centers in 15 countries. It spun off its industrial food equipment and airport systems unit into a separate company called John Bean Technologies in 2008. FMC Technologies was formed as subsidiary of FMC Corporation in 2000 and went public as an independent unit the next year.
Multifunctional complexes and sustainable resorts located out on the Sea and networked with their Cities We have devised systems that will serve as urban landmarks. They will work as recycling water plants, renewable energy power plants (solar, wind, tidal, bio-gas and geothermal), marine biology laboratories, and as inhabitable sculptures! The pride of their citizens. When thinking about the way societies and cities would grow in the future, the exploitation of resources and contamination of land, air and water will be the major factors determining if they could develop organized, responsible and positive or chaotic destructive and threatened. The greatest problems could be first mitigated and then solved by restructuring the way cities work: 1. The centralized provision of basic ...
This video captures the opening of the new AkzoNobel Laboratory of Corrosion Protection at The University of Manchester, which took place in December 2012. Several prominent AkzoNobel employees discuss the importance of preventing corrosion and give unique insights about the school. Find out more at: http://bit.ly/106tN9G
I work in an oil field shop and this is a blow out preventer..testing the shear blinds on it!
The VENUS undersea laboratory, off the coast of British Columbia, consists of an array of scientific monitoring instruments on the ocean floor, connected to onshore research laboratories by optical-fibre cable, and to the rest of the world through the Internet. This network allows a wide variety of oceanographic data to be captured continuously and made available in real time, thereby providing data for the study of how changing environmental conditions are affecting marine ecosystems. http://nature.ca
Oljebransjen møttes i havlaboratoriet ved MARINTEK 15. mars 2016. Samfunnstopper, fagfolk og politikere delte tanker om oljemarkedet i Norge.
The JOIDES Resolution is scheduled to return to IODP drilling activities in March 2009 after an extensive overhaul of its laboratories and other shipboard facilities. The riserless vessels first investigations will proceed with the Pacific Equatorial Age Transect, IODP Exp. 320; and Pacific Equatorial Age Transect/Juan de Fuca, IODP Exp. 321. The USIO (U.S. Implementing Organization) comprised of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership; Texas A&M University; and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, is responsible for managing the JOIDES Resolution. The National Science Foundation contributes the JOIDES Resolution, a riserless platform, to IODP operations.
The ULS-100 Underwater Laser Scanner is designed to operate in harsh underwater environments where measurement data is required. This sensor can obtain data for anything from assessing the structural integrity of damaged or aging infrastructure to scientific and archaeological research. Since the ULS-100 Underwater Laser Scanner is an optical system, the performance of the system in an underwater environment is effected by the water clarity in that environment. The ULS-100 has silt filtering algorithms built into the system to mitigate the impact of water with a high silt content. A demonstration of the performance of the ULS-100 in a variety of water clarity conditions is presented.

ROVs Hercules and Argus were recently deployed to bring recover one of their own! After a year on the seafloor, Wally the benthic crawler was recovered by our team at 890m/2900ft in the Barkley Canyon methane hydrate fields, deep off the west coast of Vancouver Island. This roaming rover is controlled via the internet by Ocean Networks Canada's research partners at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany, and will be taking some time off for annual maintenance. This recovery was part of our June 2017 expedition in Pacific Ocean exploring Canadian waters with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). ONC operates world-leading cabled ocean observatories that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to a broad suite of subsea instruments. The ONC NEPTUNE observatory installation, off Vancouver Isl...
We were delighted with the results from our independently fire tested wall panel with Exova Warrington in the UK. The Firevault panel showed fantastic results proving the highest safety standards are maintained on all our Firevault units. The wall panel was exposed to 1000 degrees and evidently maintained its structural integrity. You can see the intense heat that the panel has been exposed to on one side and how unaffected the opposite side the Fire Rated panel remained.
