GE Oil & Gas starts production of flexible risers
destined for Prelude, Shell’s landmark natural gas project

April 11, 2016    + + +   GE Oil & Gas has started production of four high pressure, high temperature (HP/HT) dynamic flexible risers destined for the world’s largest floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, Prelude, to be operated by Shell, located 250km off the coast of Western Australia. FLNG is a revolution in natural gas production that promises to improve the viability of smaller, more remote or environmentally-sensitive fields that would otherwise be too costly or difficult to develop. Working together to unlock these vital ‘stranded’ resources, GE has partnered with Shell on the project since 2011, following an initial order for turbomachinery equipment ... Read more

OMV: Barents Sea well proves viability of shallow horizontal development drilling

April 06, 2016  + + +  A well test via the Wisting Central II horizontal appraisal well in the Barents Sea has recorded a flow rate of more than 5,000 boe/d and has therefore proved the viability of shallow horizontal drilling needed to develop Wisting field, OMV AS reported. The objectives of the well, drilled in Wisting field about 310 km north of Hammerfest, were to confirm the potential of the discovery by proving the presence of hydrocarbons in the undrilled Wisting Central South and Central West segments, and to prove the technical concept of long-reach horizontal wells in a shallow reservoir about 250 m below seabed ... read more

DNV GL Oil & Gas: Joint industry project seeks to advance
subsea standardization

Dec. 10, 2015 + + + Over the past 15 years, subsea technology has moved from subsea wells, manifolds, flowlines, and templates, to include subsea boosting, separation, and now compression. In the near future, deepwater wells will require more complex subsea equipment. Looking further ahead, the industry expects to see automated production entirely located on the seabed, piping oil and gas directly to shore through the “subsea factory” concept ... read more

Statoil starts up shore-powered Troll A compressors
Troll A gas platform offshore Norway with two new power compressors on the topsides

Oct. 23, 2015  + + +  ABB has delivered its second power-from-shore system to the Statoil-operated Troll A gas platform in the North Sea, 70 km (43 mi) west of the Kollsnes gas treatment plant near Bergen.  As with the previous system, the aim is to power two compressors fitted to the platform’s topsides to compensate for decreasing pressure in the reservoir. The 3,000- ton compressor modules, which were installed last year, began operating earlier this month. Electricity is supplied using ABB’s HVDC Light technology, which takes alternating current (AC) from Norway’s national grid, converting it to direct current (DC) and transmitting it to the platform via 70 km-long cables ... read more
