Kilometers or Umbilical or an Autonomous Control/Power Buoy? How do you decide which is the best option?
Economics of course! Yes an Umbilical is relatively inexpensive but only if it is not too long! However, Umilicals are also
* Prone to damage
* can deteriorate in service
* inflexible during operation
* subject to market pricing fluctuations
* have limitations to where they can be installed due to seabed conditions
An autonomous Buoy provides:
>> a proven flexible solution
>> reusable and updatable during operation
>> low cost accessible platform
>> relatively easy maintenance
>> high availability and reliability
And they run via IOT connections meaning no permanent offshore manning!
Long distance tiebacks create difficulties in control system power distribution (voltage drop and power factor) and communication (bandwidth and signal loss).
SOLVED! Use local Power and Control Buoy - Sea Commander, a proven Autonomous Control Buoy which is remotely controlled and powers subsea infrastructure.

The OGTC has raised the profile of Tie-Backs of the Future and the OGA has analysed the small pools on the UKCS.
According to the OGTC, approximately 10% of the world’s small pools can be found on the UKCS and with 27 billion barrels in small pools globally, there is huge potential to take solutions developed here to other marginal fields, driving international growth and export opportunities.
Chris Pearson, Small Pools Solution Centre Manager at the Oil & Gas Technology Centre, said: “Small pools represent a big prize for the UK economy but they each have their own challenges. The Tie-back of the Future concept is making significant strides to making more of these fields economically viable.
We think there is a space for our Sea Commander Buoy as well as Tie-backs on this chart!
