Funding Opportunity: Smart Communications Subsea

The Oil & Gas Technology Centre has launched a ‘Call for Ideas’ to find innovative technology concepts for smartCs that will interconnect a variety of subsea and topside systems.

This is focused on two themes that will help unlock the huge potential in small pools:

  • Electrification of subsea systems
  • Subsea internet of things 

Your technology ideas should actively support the ‘Tieback of the Future’ initiative, which aims to half the cost and time of developing small pools. Creating a circular economy, whereby subsea equipment is designed for disassembly and reuse, is at the heart of the initiative.

Taking part is a simple process and only an outline of an idea is required at this stage.
Step 1 
Download the Call for Ideas technical information, which includes a description of the two themes.

Step 2 
Register on the Call for Ideas portal to submit an idea.
