Not only does the Baker Hughes all-electric subsea tieback reduce topside footprint, it also reduces capex costs by 15%.
FASTsubsea, a joint venture (JV) between Aker Solutions and Fsubsea, is developing the world’s first topside-less subsea multiphase boosting system expected to help cut costs, save time and reduce CO₂ emissions.
TechnipFMC snagged its second large contract in recent weeks with an engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract from Shell.
Space-age thinking makes it possible to control a subsea robot without an umbilical for subsea oil and gas inspection, maintenance and repair work.
The value of the subsea contract by TotalEnergies was not disclosed, but TechnipFMC noted that the company considers a “significant” contract to be worth between $75 million and $250 million.
The proposed JV will combine Schlumberger’s and Aker Solutions’ subsea businesses. Meanwhile, Subsea 7 will be an equity partner in the new JV.
Schlumberger's Subsea Integration Alliance will provide deepwater E&P company Kosmos Energy with a subsea multiphase boosting system, topside equipment and a 16-mile integrated power and control unbilical.
Now that a ROV-propelled acoustic sensor has proven the ability to locate blockage in a deepwater pipeline, TSC Subsea is looking into other use cases, such as detecting the buildup of hydrates and wax deposits before a plug form.
The FEED “study will finalize the technical solution for the proposed gas and condensate greenfield development in the presalt Campos Basin” before Equinor makes its FID, TechnipFMC said in a press statement.
