Subsea instrumentation interface standard plugfest. RSI floats reservoir anisotropy research.

The Subsea instrumentation interface standard (SIIS) is a joint industry project that aims to improve subsea equipment reliability by standardizing the interface between sensors and the subsea control system. SIIS held its second ‘Plugfest’ interoperability trial this month at Tronic’s subsea excellence centre in Ulverston, UK. The output from the SIIS workgroup is fed into ISO13628-6. The vision is for ROV-pluggable interfaces to subsea control systems. SIIS, open to oil companies and suppliers, now boasts 32 members.

Rock Solid Images (RSI) is asking for expression of interest in research into resistivity anisotropy characterization. The joint industry project will build on RSI’s atlas of rock physics and seismic responses and will use well log, CSEM data and modeling to ‘develop a better understanding of regional resistivity and anisotropy trends, examine the underlying causes of these trends and to develop methods to predict anisotropy from common well log measurements.’
