MultiNode™ all-electric intelligent well system

Baker Hughes

Baker Hughes Multinode

Booth 3731

The Baker Hughes MultiNode™ all-electric intelligent well system is the industry’s first advanced completion system that provides remote-controlled monitoring and precise control of production zones to manage water and gas breakthrough, and improve ultimate recovery. The system adjusts to changing reservoir conditions by choking back high-water and high-gas producing zones, balancing production along the lateral.

Mark IV High-Availability (HA) BOP Control System


CameronBooth 3317

Cameron’s Mark IV High-Availability (HA) BOP Control System features an industry-first three-Point of Distribution (POD) design option for subsea BOPs. The third POD provides added redundancy for improved operational availability of the drilling system to as much as 98%. Each POD’s simplified design improves reliability.


Small Business Winner Dreamliner


Fishbones DreamlinerBooth 5241

Fishbones Dreamliner defines a new level of simplicity, accuracy, and efficiency in reservoir stimulation. Dreamliner increases productivity by creating an array of targeted small diameter laterals into formations. Numerous laterals are individually but simultaneously drilled by harnessing fluid flow through turbines utilizing standard rig pumping equipment and existing wellbore fluid.


Annulus Monitoring System

FMCBooth 1941

FMC Technologies' Annulus Monitoring System provides independent condition monitoring within the subsea wellhead from the onset of drilling. The communication system delivers actionable information to the operator during critical phases of well installation and commissioning from multiple analog or digital sensors within annular locations.


RezConnect™ Well Testing System

Halliburton RezConnectBooth 2271

The RezConnect™ Well Testing System is the industry’s first system to offer full acoustic control of drill-stem testing tools.  Downhole samplers, valves, and gauges are controlled in real-time and their status is communicated to the surface for confidence in your ability to control, measure, and analyze your well.


Deepwater Pile Dredge


Oceaneering Deepwater Pile DredgeBooth 4117

The Oceaneering Deepwater Pile Dredge is an electrically-driven system with pumps that provide water jetting and suction to excavate piles at any depth. The jetting provides a 360° pattern to fluidize the soil inside the pile, and then suction pumps remove the soil from the pile.


Magna Subsea Inspection System™


Oceaneering Magna SubseaBooth 4117

The Oceaneering Magna Subsea Inspection System™ is a versatile screening inspection tool that assesses the mechanical integrity of assets at a high rate of speed without disrupting production. The advanced system is ROV-deployable, inspects 360° around the pipe, and provides real-time data of the wall condition with a single deployment.


Multiphase Compressor

OneSubsea Multiphase CompressorBooth 3527

The OneSubsea® Multiphase Compressor is the world's first and only true subsea wet gas compressor. The multiphase compressor, developed with Statoil and Shell, represents a break-through in technology, enabling compression of the unprocessed well stream without any need for pre-processing. The technology was primarily developed to increase recovery rates and to cost-effectively increase the tieback distances of subsea gas fields.


ARCA Chain Connector


SBM ARCABooth 4131

A new design of chain connector attaching mooring lines to floating units.  Placing the chain articulation in the mooring line allows them to be recovered for inspection and maintenance.  In response to market demand, the ARCA also enables for diverless connection /disconnection and significant cost reduction for turret mooring systems.


GeoSphere reservoir mapping-while-drilling service

Schlumberger GeosphereBooth 4541

GeoSphere* reservoir mapping-while-drilling service reveals subsurface-bedding and fluid-contact details more than 100 ft [30 m] from the wellbore. This reservoir-scale view provides an unprecedented depth of investigation, enabling operators to optimize landing, maximize reservoir exposure, and refine field development plans using deep-directional measurements enabled by real-time interpretation solutions. 



Quanta Geo photorealistic reservoir geology service

Schlumberger Quana GeoBooth 4541

Quanta Geo* photorealistic reservoir geology service redefines imaging in oil-base mud to provide highly detailed, core-like microresistivity images that visually represent formation geology. These images enable confident visual identification of facies and determination of directional trends, thus reducing uncertainty in reservoir models, making better field development plans, and quantifying project economics.




Tracerco DiscoveryBooth 8213

Discovery® revolutionizes subsea pipeline inspection, allowing operators to externally inspect coated lines for flow assurance and pipeline integrity issues without removing any coatings.
Discovery® provides:

  • Data without production interruption.  
  • Identifies hydrate, wax, asphaltene or scale.
  • Results in real time.

Discovery® is now field proven, having completed hundreds of deep-water scans.



Versabar VersacutterBooth 2577

The Versacutter provides a fundamentally new way of cutting through offshore platform piles and well conductors at a depth of up to 20 feet below the mudline. The Versacutter delivers a long reciprocating cutting wire below the mudline by jetting, with the wire continuously cutting through the piles and conductors.


Red Eye® Subsea Water-Cut Meter

Weatherford Red EyeBooth 3541

The Red Eye® Subsea Water-Cut Meter uses near-infrared absorption to provide water-onset detection, water-cut measurement, and water-to-hydrate inhibitor-ratio measurement. The meter can operate in full three-phase flow streams at any gas-volume fraction and is not affected by changes in salinity, eliminating the need for corrections related to these factors.


Total Vibration Monitor with Angular Rate Gyro

Weatherford Total Vibration MonitorBooth 3541

The Weatherford Total Vibration Monitor with Angular Rate Gyro (TVM+) is a downhole sensor that provides critical drilling dynamics data in real-time and recorded formats and utilizes the industry's first MEMS-based (micro-electromechanical system) angular-rate gyro. This unique device enables downhole-sensor measurements of angular rotation in never-before-seen detail, yielding new insights into drillstring dynamics and drilling management.


Welltec® Annular Barrier (WAB®)

Welltec WABWelltec
Booth 3117

The Welltec® Annular Barrier (WAB®) is an expandable, metal annular barrier engineered and qualified to replace cement in well construction. It’s rugged design, qualified to ISO V0 meeting regulatory standards, has been utilized as a cementless, primary well barrier to prevent surface annular pressure over the life of the well.


Small Business Winner WiSub Maelstrom™ Pinless Subsea Wet-Mate Connector


WiSub MaelstromBooth 5241

WiSub’s innovative subsea connector system eliminates the pins from subsea wet-mate connectors with a solution based on solid-state electronics, providing increased mating cycles, reduced operational cost and increased reliability of subsea connections.  The Maelstrom connector applies inductive coupling for power transfer and patented microwave communication methods for 100Mbps data rates.
