A Guide to UK Subsea Capability

Introduction
Subsea development has become a worldwide norm for offshore oil and gas fields. This is especially true of mature offshore provinces like the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), where more than fifty percent of production now comes through subsea wells. The UK subsea industry acquired its world-leading capabilities, firstly, in the development of the UKCS and subsequently in other locations that have proved even more challenging.
This journey has seen the UK subsea industry progress from working in water depths of tens of metres to thousands of metres, in every corner of the world, often in the face of severe climatic conditions and mounting economic pressure. In our times, the offshore fields still available tend to have complex reservoirs, inaccessible locations and marginal economics. This calls for creative, costeffective solutions that are also safe and environmentally benign. Subsea solutions score high in all these areas. The trend towards subsea development continues, but the UK industry is not following this trend it is leading the way. UK subsea companies are taking the global industry deeper: colder: cleaner: safer. It should not be surprising to anyone that the UK has attained such a pinnacle of excellence in subsea engineering. Subsea wells tied back by seabed flowlines were used to produce the UKs first oil in 1974. The North Sea went on to become the largest market for subsea production, with almost all the hardware needed, including subsea well heads, flexible flowlines, control umbilicals and control systems, being designed and produced in the UK. However, while the lessons of history are important, the UK subsea industry is nothing if not forward looking. The major subsea projects of the future will be in West Africa, South East Asia, South America and the Gulf of Mexico all places where the UKs subsea companies are already doing business and where their skills will be increasingly needed. The pre-Salt projects, offshore Brazil, give an indication of the challenges to be faced. These include: complex reservoirs, requiring careful data acquisition and interpretation and cutting-edge well engineering; ultra-deep water mooring for the floating production units; logistics for the gas offtake pipelines in water depth of more than 2km, over a distance of 300km, with associated problems of paraffin deposition, hydrate and scaling control; high pressure and CO2, which have implications for riser and wellbore materials specification. UK contractors and suppliers can take these and other issues in their stride. The UK has an all-round design engineering and project management capability in the oil and gas sector that is unequalled anywhere. And UK companies further along the supply chain are extremely able to supply the equipment and services that will be needed. Many of the subsea technologies in general use today were developed for the North Sea. The high levels of expertise gained in that environment make Aberdeen, especially, a centre of excellence for subsea contracting with many global companies running part, or all, of their international operations from there. Over half the commercial remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) used in the global offshore industry were designed and built by a UK company, including workclass ROV systems that can operate down to 3000 metres on ultra-deep drilling programmes. UK companies were also responsible for revolutionising horizontal drilling technology, being first to deploy multi-well production templates, the original underwater manifold centre, and intelligent riser systems.

A Guide to UK Subsea Capability

Introduction
BPP-TECH

The UK designs and manufactures a very wide range of high-technology underwater electronics, cameras, sonars and sensors. Developing new technology for the ongoing subsea challenge is a core activity of the UK industry. UK centres of excellence are devoted to the research of new subsea technology, materials engineering and asset management. The UK is developing tools for intelligent completions, HP/HT optimisation, fluid and sand management, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and mini-ROVs. Wider issues being addressed by the industry, along with academic partners, include improved seismic resolution, reservoir characterisation, exploration and downhole logging techniques. New production technology is targeted at minimising operating costs and maintaining safety and environmental performance, with novel methods for brownfield infill drilling, asset integrity, inspection, repair, debottlenecking and decommissioning. Innovative solutions include the use of low-cost lasers to detect gas leaks, tools for conducting wireline operations in highly deviated wells, flammable gas sensors, a counter-flow pig, precise subsidence monitoring using GPS and new wetwelding techniques.

The new technologies and techniques being devised by the UK subsea industry will be critical in the finding, extracting and transporting of offshore oil and gas. In future, many subsea developments will be platformless. The UK industrys track record in pushing the limits of the possible in subsea tie-backs means that oil and gas can now be transported along the seabed over very large distances, allowing production from remote locations, even under ice sheets, direct to shore. UK companies are pioneers in this new era of subsea to beach. Over 800 companies form the UKs subsea oil and gas supply chain, employing 40,000 people, generating revenues in excess of US$9.5 billion with exports accounting for over 50 per cent of products and services by value. This directory provides details of some of those companies. They are among the best in the world and exemplify the key UK strengths of Innovation, Reliability, Adaptability, Sustainability and Knowledge. If you would like to know more about the UK subsea sector, please make use of the contacts provided on pages 08-09. UK Trade & Investment and industry trade organisations such as Subsea UK stand ready to help you make contact with the subsea company you need to make your project a success. Do not hesitate to get in touch.

NCA has the capability to take on complex projects with fit for purpose engineering, multiple services and subcontracting in specialist areas like Rigless P&As, Well Abandonment, Subsea Wellhead Removals and Conductor Slot Recoveries. In June 2010, NCS Survey was contracted by NAM (Shell Netherlands) to perform a scour survey around the legs of the jack-up drilling rig GSF Monarch. Previous scour surveys were performed by a small manned vessel with a hull-mounted MBES (multi-beam echo sounder). Such methodology required the outflow lines associated with drilling to be raised, thus disrupting drilling operations while the small vessel sailed under the jack-up drilling rig. There are obvious safety implications for such a vessel operation, not to mention the impact on the drilling schedule. Instead, NCS Survey mobilised on board a standby vessel that was able to maintain a position outside the exclusion zone of the platform/drilling rig, whilst the AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) was launched, performed its mission and returned to the vessel. Not only did this methodology have no impact on drilling operations, it removed a hazardous vessel operation.

CASE STUDY Oliver Valvetek Limited Oliver Valvetek successfully passed unusually rigorous qualification testing on five of their products destined for use in the deep water oil fields off the coast of Angola. The positive result signifies the final approval of an order worth several million pounds to the company. The five products were; a 1 actuated valve, a actuated valve, a 3/8 half turn gate valve, a 1 check valve and a 1 half turn gate valve. Ordinarily these valves are made out of either stainless steel or duplex, however the order specified Inconel, which has subtle differences in its thermal and tensile qualities so the valves needed to be subjected to requalification testing. Also, the company would normally have carried out the API 6A PR2 test, the endurance test and the hyperbaric test separately, but in this case the clients wishes were quite particular. According to client stipulations the valves were subjected to a 200 cycle API 6A PR2 test at pressures up to 10,000 psi and between -20F and +250F, a 1000 cycle endurance test and a 200 cycle hyperbaric test at a simulated depth of 3,000 metres all of which were conducted consecutively. The successful testing Olivers products validates the companys involvement in deepwater operations offshore West Africa and sends a clear message that their valves will last the lifetime of the installation.

In 2009 Petrobras began developing the Hybrido gas field, offshore Brazil, 2000 metres deep and over 100km from shore. The field development involved the installation of 141km of flexible and rigid lines. OEL supplied pig-tracking, signalling and data logging equipment that enabled proof of launch, proof of receipt, and a means of tracking pigs. All products delivered met the battery-life requirement by incorporating pressure-switch activation where appropriate while also complying with the necessary pressure rating. Petrobras safety standards require that any subsea pipeline be fully tested to one-and-a-half times its operating pressure. OELs temperature and pressure subsea data-logging system was used to monitor, record and report pressure and temperature data for each pipeline hydrotest. Its function was to secure the data while freeing up the support vessel to continue to the next phase of operations.

CASE STUDY Online Electronics More and more subsea pipelines are being laid and exploration and production are taking place in everdeeper waters with operations down to 5,000 metres now expected. This creates new challenges for providers of offshore pigging services. Pre-commissioning pigs may be pre-installed into launchers months and sometimes a year in advance of flooding, cleaning, gauging and testing operations. Subsea pigging service provider Online Electronics Limited (OEL) says that pressure rating, battery life and delayed-activation techniques are among the key parameters that need to be addressed to ensure that the quality of pigging equipment matches up to its intended use. The exceptionally high quality of OELs equipment was demonstrated in its work on the Hybrido field.

CASE STUDY Sonomatic Ltd Sonomatic is a market leader in the development and provision of automated non-destructive ultrasonic inspection for subsea operations, a fact they were able to demonstrate recently to BP. BP needed a high-resolution inspection system capable of carrying out zero degree corrosion mapping on the bottom half of a buried 14-inch pipeline with a further 2 piggyback line standing 4 above it. The pipelines were situated in the Southern North Sea at a depth of approximately 45 metres, and although this is not beyond diver accessibility, strong currents meant that an inspection using an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) would be necessary. Sonomatic responded by developing an ROV-deployed automated inspection system. Once specific areas of concern had been identified, and the area excavated and cleaned, Sonomatic deployed the tool directly onto the pipeline. It was held in position by hydraulic clamps and then controlled by Sonomatics technicians working in tandem with ROV pilots. The inspection tool was connected to a control system or pod located on the ROV, and all data transferred back to the surface via the ROV umbilical. This allowed real-time review of the inspection data and real-time analysis allowed decisions on any further high-resolution scanning to be made quickly, so that all the requirements could be addressed in one operation. Although the ROV-iT 2000 was developed to meet BPs specific requirements, the design team created a flexible tool that could be easily adapted, and Sonomatic is already applying the technology to meet the requirements of other clients.

Using IP gained over 35 years supported by a new state-of-the-art research, development and functional test facility, Transvac can provide innovative Ejector technology for subsea processing applications. With no moving parts and no maintenance Transvacs Ejector technology is an ideal solution for subsea processing. All Transvac subsea Ejectors are designed, manufactured and tested in-house. Transvac supplied the first subsea processing Ejector on the TORDIS project for Statoil.

Marlim is a Petrobras operated field, 110 km offshore Rio de Janeiro under 650 to 2,600 metres of water. It was once the worlds largest subsea development, with 129 wells and 8 floating production units. Marlim has now been operating for 20 years and is producing an increasing amount of water and sand. This limits the oil handling capacity of the surface facilities. FMC was contracted to supply a subsea separation and pumping system for the Marlim field, to debottleneck the floating production facility and increase production by removing unwanted water from the production stream, at the seabed. The system will also use water re-injection to increase reservoir pressure and boost production. FMC turned to Transvac for a custom designed Ejector Solution and not for the first time. The two companies had worked before on the TORDIS project the Worlds first full-field subsea separation system with boosting and injection, for which Transvac supplied a super duplex Ejector. Transvac Jet Pumps for Marlim include special ceramic wear resistant internals and will undergo full flow performance mapping using Transvacs R&D facility flow loop system.
