Subsea High Voltage Power Distribution' Technical Paper Receives 2nd Prize at New Orleans Conference

Sept. 27, 2012
The technical paper “Subsea High Voltage Power Distribution” was awarded 2nd Prize among the 54 papers presented during the IEEE-IAS-PCIC (Petroleum and Chemical Industry Committee) Technical Conference which was held in Toronto Canada in September 2011.

The technical paper “Subsea High Voltage Power Distribution” was awarded 2nd Prize among the 54 papers presented during the IEEE-IAS-PCIC (Petroleum and Chemical Industry Committee) Technical Conference which was held in Toronto Canada in September 2011.

The paper describes the cutting edge technology that is used to bring the megawatts of power to the ocean floor needed by the subsea production units that are being installed close to the reservoirs where oil and gas are extracted from below the sea bed.

The prize was awarded to the four co-authors Terence Hazel (Schneider Electric), Henri Baerd (Converteam), Jarle Bremnes (Nexans Norway) and Josselin Legeay (Deutsch Offshore).

Terence Hazel was present to receive the Award Monday September 24th  at the 59th Annual IEEE-IAS-PCIC Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana USA.

“Working with coauthors who are specialists in their fields to put together a technical paper is a very rich experience. Receiving this award is truly gratifying and shows that our work was well received by our peers.” he said when receiving the prize from Jim Rozsits (Rockwell Automation), PCIC Advisory and Awards Subcommittee Chair.

The IEEE-IAS-PCIC annual conference has over 1000 attendees from countries around the globe. During 3 days industry specialists present some 50 technical papers covering a wide range of electrical and electronic engineering topics in that are of particular interest in the oil and gas industry.
