DUBLIN, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Deepwater expenditure is expected to increase by 130%, compared to the preceding five-year period, totalling $260 billion (bn) from 2014 to 2018. As production from mature basins onshore and in shallow water declines, development of deepwater reserves has become increasingly vital. Robust oil prices support investment in deepwater developments - the sustained high oil prices over the past few years have increased confidence in the sector.

Africa and the Americas continue to dominate deepwater capital expenditure (Capex), with $213bn set to be spent over the next five years. Africa is forecast to experience the greatest growth among the three regions, as East African natural gas developments begin production and become more prominent in the latter years of the forecast period. Latin America will remain the largest market and North America is expected to experience the least growth.

This report has identified a temporary trough in global expenditure in 2015 primarily driven by delays to delivery of FPS units in Latin America. African projects have also experienced delays resulting in a surge in Capex from 2016 onwards.

The 12th edition of the Deepwater Market Forecast covers all key commercial themes relevant to players across the value chain in the deepwater sector:

  • Supply chain - detailing the financing of deepwater developments, contractors, equipment and installations. Includes analysis of contracting strategies (e.g. frame agreements), dayrates, key players and capabilities of each sector within the deepwater market (drilling, FPS and subsea hardware).
  • Key drivers - discussion of factors encouraging deepwater activity - including robust oil & gas prices, deepwater production to offset declining production from onshore and shallow water basins, E&P spend of international operators and Petrobras' activity in Brazil.
  • Regional forecasts - forecast Capex within each region, including examples of notable projects and operators within the region and countries with most activity.
  • Component forecasts - drilling and completion (subsea and surface completed wells), subsea production hardware, SURF and trunklines.

The report also includes:

  • Constraints - the impact of political and regulatory influences and geopolitical disputes on the deepwater market.
  • Local content requirements - includes case studies of key countries.
  • Focus areas - examination of deepwater provinces, including recent discoveries in East Africa.
  • Procurement - factors affecting the decisions facing FPS operators, whether to lease or own vessels and details of major leasing contractors.
  • List of deepwater prospects - includes information on all identified prospects coming onstream from 2014 to 2018 by operator, location, water depth, number of trees and status category.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
