Wood has teamed up with Abyssal, a 3D visualisation, simulation and digitalisation solutions provider to the oil and gas and marine renewables markets, to provide the latest digital technology aimed at improving the design, constructability, operation and inspection of subsea assets globally.

The technology will offer an innovative approach to subsea project delivery and operations through collaborative software and services in the areas of visualisation, simulation, operations and data management.

Tim O’Sullivan, President of Wood’s subsea & export systems, commented: “We are excited to collaborate with Abyssal to unlock new and more efficient ways of planning, executing and operating projects for our customers. We bring four decades of experience in subsea to the partnership and the capability of Abyssal strongly complements our services and software.”

Leveraging the latest digital technology, Wood will work with oil and gas operators to provide enhanced capabilities which combine this technology with their extensive engineering and operational expertise. Key applications will include:

  • Enhanced planning with ROV simulations to determine feasibility of operations.
  • Creating digital twins of subsea fields to optimise engineering.
  • 3D visualisation and operations management to enable tasks in complex low visibility subsea environments.
  • Digital collaboration to track real time operations and assets worldwide and perform remote troubleshooting.

Darren Martin, Wood Chief Technology Officer, explained: “Our customers look to us to provide solutions to the complex problems across the energy market landscape. Thinking innovatively, embracing technology and partnering with world-class organisations such as Abyssal ensures Wood continues to offer expertise and add value to every phase of our customers’ project life cycle.”

Rafael Simao, CEO at Abyssal, added: “Our leading technology solutions are field proven and bring significant value to all phases of a subsea development. We look forward to exploring opportunities with Wood to benefit our joint customer base, particularly in the areas of visualisation and simulation, digital eco-systems to optimise operations and virtual system integration testing for safer operations.”
