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.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
