Powered subsea production. Intelligent recovery.

Powered Production
Achieve full asset potential with intelligent recovery

How can you realize the full potential of your subsea asset?

Today’s subsea production management is reactive. It relies predominantly on the pressure of the reservoir to drive flow from wellhead to host—drive that is always decreasing or decaying. Production changes are traditionally achieved through large adjustments, such as choking back the well. This makes fine-tuning almost impossible without incurring negative consequences to both production and recovery:

  • Production flows to lowest pressure wells unless the strongest wells are choked back; it's better to boost the weaker wells or all wells to provide the greatest production management.
  • Gas lifting is often used but adds cost and equipment (gas compressors, chokes, and manifolds).
  • More gas means more flow assurance issues with slugging, hydrates, cooling, and scaling.
Powered production systems increases reservoir productivity and revenue.

The answer—powered production

Relying solely on reservoir drive means pressure, productivity, and recovery decline at a faster rate than necessary. By introducing powered production, you can avoid the financial losses that result from relying on reservoir drive alone. Designed and engineered for the unique challenges posed by specific subsea applications—heavy oil, long tiebacks, deepwater fields, and mature assets—OneSubsea processing systems help you achieve full asset potential.

Deep reservoir, long tieback? We have the technology.

At the core of powered production are OneSubsea's industry-leading single-phase boosting pump, multiphase boosting pump, and multiphase compressor. These technologies are powering production in some of the world’s most ambitious subsea projects. From the heavy oil fields offshore West Africa and the ultradeep fields in the Gulf of Mexico to the uncompromising Australian subsea brownfields, we have a track record of delivering a significant return on investment and operational improvement on a global stage. Improve fluid flow, optimize field development, and produce more efficiently while maximizing your returns.
