The UK Oil & Gas Technology Centre has invested in three robotic technologies to help transform pressure vessel inspection on offshore rigs. We find out how the systems being developed could help reduce costs and improve safety in this vital task that currently requires full shutdown and manual inspection.
Also in the next issue, we take a look at the tension between Cyprus and Turkey over oil and gas deposits in a contested region off the island’s coast, take a look inside the growing US oil production market, and speak to former Russian Energy Minister Igor Yusufov about what’s next for OPEC.
Plus, we take a look at a new Norwegian-developed well-sealing technology using “artificial” magma to fuse infrastructure to surrounding rock, and track the growing numbers of climate change-related lawsuits against major oil companies.
