As the world continues its search for energy, many new advanced technologies are being developed. As a result, there is a surge in the amount of electrical power demanded for operations in the oil and gas industry. Satisfying the power demanded by loads in offshore remote locations is an elaborate process. The technical and economic aspects of the alternatives of HVAC and HVDC power transmission have to be scrutinized, before the complex operation of implementing an offshore power supply infrastructure can be executed. After carefully identifying the requirements of a case, the optimum power supply network through appropriate submarine cables can be determined.
