Our digitally-enabled front-end engineering design enables the rapid development of field concepts with options to optimize for schedule, cost, production or carbon efficiency. Changes to the subsea system are seen in the context of corresponding efficiencies in topside facilities and wider infrastructure to ensure the most efficient design possible.
This approach has been proven to maximize production, reduce operating costs, increase safety and reduce the carbon footprint of operations.
Challenging Convention with Digitally-Enabled Design
Digitally-enabled design helps us drive efficiency and standardization in our design processes to rapidly create, test and adjust design concepts, with each field development proposal costed.
Our combination of engineering knowledge, digital twin capability and advanced digital front-end engineering tools provides a unique solution to field design.
Our digital tools can reduce project timelines from months to minutes. Software applications in ix3’s Concept Insight and Engineering Insight portfolios shorten the time it takes to select the best subsea layout by 75%.
Across the Norwegian Continental Shelf we have reduced cost-per-well by more than 40%
Smart, System Thinking
Working in close collaboration with customers from the start, we can rapidly trial multiple scenarios of a full field system allowing every aspect of a design to be challenged until the best result is found. Such early engagement enabled us to reduce cost-per-well on the Norwegian Continental Shelf by 40% be developing an efficient concept, using standardized equipment and processes, configurable system engineering and taking a serial line production approach.
This allowed us to reduce the total development cost of the Johan Castberg development by 50%. It will enable us to lower development capex and opex for a customer in the Barents Sea with a 190 km ultra-long gas system tieback removing the need for a production platform.
