Collaborative Subsea Field Development Service

Optimize and accelerate subsea development

OneSubsea collaborative subsea field development service transforms the subsea field development process.

This new service digitally connects cross-functional domains, promoting collaborative engagement through agile teams and giving you the platform to optimize and accelerate your subsea developments.

An agile and collaborative mindset enables us to deploy lean highly experienced project teams that can efficiently identify, screen, and evaluate several scenarios in a short time-frame.

Your and our people form one integrated team that collaborates on key criteria balancing both technical and economic aspects of the working plan.

This agility allows you to forecast operating performance, maximize revenue stream, and maintain strict control of capital expenditure—in all stages of the planning cycle.

From initial concept ideas to final cost and schedule estimates, you get the direct commitment from those who design, manufacture, test, and install subsea equipment with the track record to back it up.

Technology access

We give you access to our market-leading subsea technology and can rapidly screen the best-available technologies (current and new) for your subsea development. This ensures return on investment and capturing value early for optimal impact over the project lifecycle.

Schedule and delivery certainty

We provide the verification and validation layers to the development plan, giving you the confidence in delivering to the plan—on time and on budget.

From technology requirements to cost estimates and execution schedules, you have the direct commitment of those who design, manufacture, test, and install.

Sustainable and environmental solutions

Our approach to simplified field development, where we put smaller, lighter, and in many cases, less equipment on the seabed not only reduces cost but also reduces our carbon footprint.

Innovative technologies such as subsea electrification and subsea processing reduce operational intensity during the operating phase as well as our carbon impact during manufacturing and installation.

Connected real-time collaboration

Access the full extension of our domain experience and realize the opportunities created through collaboration and integration. Our lean, agile team approach is enhanced through our digital workspace environment, connecting people, data, and technology to reach key decisions more efficiently and with greater confidence.

Our integrated planning workflows enable more-connected thinking. We continuously evaluate technical, commercial, and environmental criteria as we mature the development solution, capturing the impacts of change, understanding the dependencies, and ultimately strengthening the business case.

Assess production performance for optimal opex

Technical domains

The OneSubsea field development team aims to build a digital representation of the components and dynamics of how a subsea asset operates and lives throughout its life cycle. This digital representation goes beyond schematics and designs made on a snapshot of boundary conditions.

From very early, all essential components of the reservoir and subsea systems are implemented in this digital representation, allowing us to establish their interrelations, dependencies, and dynamics. This enables studying any possible departure from underlying assumptions and the effect it can have on a prescribed production performance and economics.

With close asset collaboration and effective execution, our team harnesses its extensive worldwide experience and industry-leading digital tooling to positively influence the design, construction, and operation of the asset. We outline all possible effects of uncertainty and all possible responses under the range of variability of boundary conditions. This information helps you develop a robust execution plan and establish effective mitigation plans for all plausible risks.

The right development architecture is then engineered by understanding and integrating the key elements of four domains:

Subsea system engineering
Subsea performance modeling
Flow assurance & operability
Reservoir & wells

Subsea Planner collaborative field development solution gives you dynamic reservoir and production models that change over the lifetime of the field.

Enabling software: Subsea Planner

Our cloud-based Subsea Planner collaborative field development solution provides efficiency and optimization by combining full-field economic calculations with reservoir engineering, production assurance, and subsea technologies and systems spanning the entire planning process in one visually rich environment.

The software comprises three main layers:

  • simulation tools for flow assurance, reservoir, and integrated modeling
  • economic analysis and scenario-comparison layer for accurate pricing at very early stages
  • user interface layer that provides a 2D or 3D visualization of the full asset (subsurface, subsea, and topside) and enables you to collaborate and interact with the economics and simulations.

Spanning field development planning from the reservoir to the host selection, Subsea Planner solution lets you trigger simulation runs as needed and output multiple development scenarios with a comparative full economic evaluation.
