THE Subsea 7 and Schlumberger in global business channels that are already in frank negotiations to shape a 50/50 joint venture, along the same lines as the Subsea Integration Alliance, conceived in 2015. This initiative aims to combine the surface, production and processing services portfolio of the subsea OneSubsea, with the Subsea 7 umbilicals, risers and flowlines modality.
With this merger, the next step will be to strengthen the field of engineering, designs and all executions of these projects combined with autonomous technological systems, remote monitoring of production and operations that need inspection, maintenance and repairs. Shell together with Senai have developed a similar system that can replace an ROV and will implement it soon, learn more here.
OneSubsea is a joint venture between Schlumberger and Cameron, created in 2012, focused on the manufacture and development of products, systems and services for the subsea oil and gas market. In 2017, it established a leading position in the subsea market with a focus on pore-to-pipeline.
