GENERAL NEWSOil workers will return to the platforms

The Norwegian government has intervened in an industrial dispute that had threatened to halt oil production. 

The risk that a week long strike would escalate with a lock-out on Monday spurred the government to act.

"Such an escalation of the labour conflict would...have serious socio-economic consequences," said Social and Labour Minister Dagfinn Hoybraaten

"We will be at full production in a few days," said the oil industry association's leader, Per Terje Vold.

UPCOMING PROJECTSThe Chinguetti project will have 11 offshore wellsWoodside Petroleum said it plans to invest A$8370m ($600m) in developing Mauritania's Chinguetti oil project, off the West African country's coast.

The Australian firm's decision to go ahead with production is a boost for one of the world's poorest states.

Woodside expects to extract 75,000 barrels of oil a day from Chinguetti, starting production in March 2006.

Woodside said the field could account for 12% of its annual revenue by 2008; its shares rose 2.5% in Sydney.

Mauritania is mostly desert, half its population depends on agriculture and many of them are nomadic herders.  Read More...

Developed specifically for the Delaware Tunnel, ULIISYS (above) begins its journey.

New York City's Environmental Protection Department wanted the impossible―and they got it.

Engineers sought an unmanned, "free-swimming, free-thinking" vehicle capable of descending 16 mi (26 km) to navigate the entire length of the leaking 60-year-old Delaware Aqueduct and photograph "every square inch of its walls."

Also, the vehicle had to conform to strict water quality specifications and harbor sophisticated cameras and instruments that would deliver exhaustive data.

And that's not all. Keep in mind that such an intricate investigation of the crucial tunnel, which conveys 50 percent of the city's water supply, would be constrained by water pressure of 240 psi (1,655 kPa).

AUV NEWSThe U.S. Navy has created a highly efficient AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) for monitoring the underwater “weather.” SeaGlider is a six foot long, 114 pound AUV that looks like a torpedo with wings. It can stay at sea for up to six months (before needing a battery recharge) and “glides” through the water at up to 20-25 kilometers a day. The AUV is propelled by a system of shifting weights (the battery pack) an air tank that is emptied and filled to adjust depth, and a pair of wings that provide life, as wings do for an aircraft in the air. The SeaGlider moves forward by diving, and comes back up in a forward glide as well, collecting data all the way. Read More...
