Offshore Structures
MOPU Wellbay Modules

Bespoke wellbay modules designed to be


used in conjunction with a MOPU

Quick and low cost solution for rapid


development of normally uneconomical
fields

Attaching the wellbay module to the hull of


the FPSO removes the need for a NUI or
standard jacket

Systems are designed to be either fitted to


new build rigs or retrofit to existing rigs

Allows multiple wells to be tied back to an


FPSO

Page 12

Offshore Structures
Tension Decks

Bespoke tension decks designed for


explorations and development drilling

Systems are designed to be either fitted to


new build rigs or retrofit to existing rigs

Allows multiple wells to be drilled at one


single location

Can provide up to 1500 Tones of tension


across 6 individual well slots

Page 13

Offshore Structures
Sea Swift Conductor Supported Platforms

Typically NUI platforms using well conductors as


structural members.

Designed to current API and Verification body


rules.

Designed for installation by standard cantilever


Jack-up and supply vessel. No need specialist
vessel assistance.

Conductors can be drilled and cemented or piled.

Three main applications

Normally Unmanned Installation

Pre drill wellhead platform

Slot addition wellhead platform

Conductors

Typically 36 or 30 diameter Grade X52.


Premium fatigue grade connectors (e.g. National Oilwell Varco XLC-S
connectors) with excellent strength and fatigue performance.
Pile or drill conductors.
Four conductors will form the main structural support to the platform and
will be effectively fixed within the subsea structures via use of grout.
Corrosion protection will be provided.

Subsea Structures
Example of 4 Well Sea Swift

Overall dimensions of approximately: H: 13.6m W: 6.9m L: 8.1m

4 wells in a 2 x 2 array @ 6m x 4.8m spacing plus a central running slot


which can also be used as a well slot (future requirement).

Approximate weight 160 Tonnes.

4 x 42 O/D leg sleeves, and an arrangement of smaller tubular sections


interconnecting bracing members.

The subsea structure will be located at or just above the seabed and
initially supported on a central support pile. This can also accommodate
an additional well if required in the future.

All required cement grouting equipment, installation cameras, subsea


gyrocompass location fittings and guides for the export riser and subsea
power umbilical cable.

Conductors will be grouted within the sleeves.

Page 18

Sea Swift CSP


Riser Guide

Offers support/protection to the export riser and umbilical


cable.
Approximate weight will be 2.5 Tonnes
Locates over two well conductors.
Installed either following or during the installation of the 4
well conductors and prior to installation of the topsides
module.
Incorporates guide modules for the export riser and the
subsea power umbilical cable.
Will be installable using AEL patented technology.
