Overview

Tarpon Systems, Inc.  has a patented production platform for offshore oil and gas field development. The system is a cost-effective alternative to traditional fixed, multi-leg platforms and other minimal systems. Low construction costs minimize capital investment. Rapid construction and installation provide early cash flow. The patented system is composed of an underwater anchor-pile and cable guying assembly that supports a site-specific designed well protector caisson, boat landing, platform and related production equipment. It can support a single well, or up to six wells. 

The company traditionally used physical 3D models of their platforms at trade shows to showcase specific features and benefits of their system.  Unless you were at the trade show and can see the physical model, it was difficult to visualize just how innovative their offshore platform is. 

 
Solutions

Tarpon Systems decided that a series of 3D illustrations and high quality graphics could be used to tell the story of their offshore platforms in print, in sales presentations, at trade shows and on their web site. Tarpon called on epic to create these 3D graphics.  epic began by modeling the platform and all the component parts in 3D using some of the CAD files provided by Tarpon Systems.  epic then modeled the ocean floor and sub-sea components so prospective customers could see the platform both above and below the waterline.

 
results

A level of detail was provided by epic in these illustrations that would be difficult (if not impossible) to reproduce using traditional physical models. Once the digital 3D models were created, Tarpon had epic move the "camera" around the 3D scene to create the perfect viewpoint for a specific feature of the rig.
