Italian oil major Eni Norge has joined Siemens' Subsea Power Grid joint industry program (JIP).

Siemens Subsea is developing a complete subsea power network with a group of partners, led by Chevron and including Statoil, ExxonMobil and Petrobras. The JIP is one of the main initiatives in the offshore oil and gas industry for advancing large scale subsea processing.

The Siemens Subsea Power Grid will provide oil companies with the tools needed to use subsea processing on a wider range of projects including long step-outs, deep water (3000m) and in remote areas and ultimately enabling the full subsea factory of the future.

The program which includes the manufacturing, testing and qualification of complete power modules in a system configuration is currently in its final stage before the solutions will be commercially available to offshore oil and gas operators.
