Delivering the World’s First Operating Subsea Compression System – FREE!
July 18, 2017 @ 4:15 pm - 6:00 pmFree
After years of development, qualification and engineering, subsea compression technology is now a proven solution to increase the recovery factor for offshore gas developments. The first subsea compression system was installed at the Aasgard field in the Norwegian Sea, which started up successfully on the 17th of September 2015. This represents an important milestone for the oil and gas industry, as apart from representing the successful developments of new subsea processing technologies, subsea compression also proves itself a viable alternative field development option to oil and gas operators.
This presentation aims to shares Aker Solutions’ journey and experience on delivering the Aasgard subsea compression project. In addition, the presentation will also outline the ongoing development activities to optimize the compression system delivered for Aasgard, with a particular focus on the unit size and weight optimization without requiring any qualification activities of new technologies. This new generation of subsea compression system will extend the applicability of this technology to a much wider range of fields and offshore regions.
