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.

Cloud computing is unquestionably one of the driving forces of DevOps, as the automation of operations transforms enterprise software development. DevOps, however, is more than a technology trend, as it represents a move toward silo-busting, self-organizing horizontal teams that drive business velocity. At the same time, enterprise Digital Transformation represents an upheaval across the enterprise, as customer preferences and behavior drive enterprise technology decisions. This transformation ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
