Product Sheet Subsea Boosting Systems
Increase well flow and recoverable reserves.
Reduce energy consumption by 62% compared with gas lift (for typical 4- to 8-well tieback, average-sized single-pump station, differential pressures up to 2,900 psi, and 95% uptime over 10 y)
Lower CO2 emissions by 62% (132,000 metric tons) compared with gas lift (because of lower energy consumption; for typical 4- to 8-well tieback, average-sized single-pump station, differential pressures up to 2,900 psi, and 95% uptime over 10 y)
Minimize footprint with the most compact and space-efficient artificial lift solution
Subsea pumps boost production and recovery by lowering wellhead pressure to increase the bottomhole drawdown. In addition, they boost the pressure at the outlet of the pump, adding energy and creating a significant impact along the entire fluid journey from the reservoir to the processing facilities.
Since the pumps were introduced in the 1990s, significant technical advances have increased capacities, power, and differential pressures while expanding the envelope of operations to deeper water and greater tieback distances.
Our subsea boosting system technologies comprise
With >4 million running hours accumulated, OneSubsea boosting pumps are inherently robust and wear-resistant, suitable for use with fluids containing sand particles—a common occurrence in most subsea production systems.
All pumps are configured with an electric motor mounted on top and the pump section at the bottom, both within a vertical cartridge that is fully encapsulated in a pressure housing. The optimized compact design enables subsea installation and retrieval by light vessels.
Depending on how a field develops, any pump type can be fitted into the standardized subsea interface, giving you the option to replace one pump with a different type to meet the requirements of your field throughout its life.
Total system solutions ensure that all risks are identified and mitigated in the early stages of field development planning. These solutions include all the equipment needed to operate the pumps during startup, shutdown, and normal flowing conditions; they are combined with operational support to provide complete system availability.
