Armada to install ROV launch and recovery system on its fleet of robotic ships. Delivery of the umbilicals is expected in Q4 2021. The King’s Quay FPS achieved FID in Q2 2019, and is expected to process up to 80,000 B/D of crude oil with first production in 2022. WFS Technologies’ collaboration is its second in as many months supporting its Seatooth technologies. Petrofac’s well management contract comes nearly a month after IOG received approval for phase 1. The contract also follows an EPC contract awarded to Subsea 7 in May.
This case study describes how gas condensates within a subsea tieback system behave very differently to condensed water from a wet-gas system and therefore a pseudo dry-gas system needs to be configured differently for gas-condensate developments. Unmanned minimum facility platforms are a reliable alternative to traditional wellhead platforms or subsea installations, and the technologies enabling simpler designs have evolved. Anadarko aims to maximize immediate short-cycle value through tiebacks and platform relocations in the Gulf of Mexico. This review of papers illustrates some of the innovative solutions used in the region. In maturing oil wells, oil production is often restricted as reservoir pressure depletes.
A new idea from Equinor calls for autonomous submarines to transport CO2 from the surface to the seabed. The Norwegian operator says the shuttles could also carry oil and water for injection. Phase 1 is expected to be operational in 2024. For the offshore sector, the collapse in oil demand and prices came just as the market was beginning to look up. Now many companies are focused on survival.
Phase 1 is expected to be operational in 2024. In this paper, the authors introduce a new technology installed permanently on the well completion and addressed to real-time reservoir fluid mapping through time-lapse electromagnetic tomography during production or injection. Hydrocarbon processing and treating systems often require large and elaborate surface facilities. When operating in challenging locations, such as deep water or the Arctic, these systems can be expensive. This paper bridges the gap between operational petrophysicists and FTS specialists, introducing an automated work flow by which petrophysicists can conduct FTS jobs.
This study examines how subsea processing (SSP) can develop into an important enabling technology for future ultradeepwater-field developments and long-distance tiebacks. As it has since 1969, the world came to OTC to make critical decisions, share ideas, and develop business partnerships to meet global energy demands.
The costs of subsea boosting systems have been reduced by adopting three primary strategies: simplifying the system design to reduce weight and cost, simplifying the installation and intervention, and reducing complexity and risk. This study examines how subsea processing (SSP) can develop into an important enabling technology for future ultradeepwater-field developments and long-distance tiebacks. Emphasis on identifying more-efficient subsea boosting solutions has led to a number of initiatives in the industry.
Operators are increasingly using existing offshore infrastructure for asset life extension, and developing new marginal stranded fields rather than develop new large greenfields. Subsea processing is an enabling technology in this goal. Subsea processing is an evolving technology in ultradeepwater development and has the potential to unlock a significant amount of hydrocarbon resources. In this paper, the authors have reviewed the application of subsea systems in 12 deepwater fields and discussed the significance of each.
Operators are increasingly using existing offshore infrastructure for asset life extension, and developing new marginal stranded fields rather than develop new large greenfields. Subsea processing is an enabling technology in this goal. A cybersecurity director outlines the steps needed to adopt a risk-based cybersecurity program. He cautions that in many cases, process control systems’ confidentiality is mistakenly viewed as a lower priority than IT systems’. AUVs aren’t limited to inspections and pipeline surveys.
