Through digital insight, predictive maintenance, standardized equipment and enhanced oil recovery techniques, we can drive lower operating costs, increased uptime and extended field life.
Enhanced pumping, boosting and all-electric technologies boost recovery and extend the life of the field as reservoir pressure drops and recoverable reserves become harder to reach. Marginal tiebacks with ultra-long tieback distances are made possible by powerful low-cost pump solutions and simplified, modular subsea production systems. We have been able to cut capex by 50% with a pump module solution through reductions in engineering cost and hardware spend.
Technology for Extended Life
Field life is extended and made more effective and efficient through enhanced recovery and predictive maintenance. Operational data is harvested from the sensors, control systems and instruments on our intelligent products and live-streamed to our specialists. We use product expertise, machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to form organized insight, helping us to identify predictive maintenance and production optimization opportunities.
Subsense’s real-time data streams supported a 80% reduction in required vessel and ROV time
By identifying issues early, our teams can reduce downtime and associated costs like rig rentals, as well as make predictive and condition-based monitoring possible for better performance over the life of an asset. For example, condition monitoring analytics from our Subsense app helped identify the root cause of a hydraulic pressure issue on a large subsea field west of Shetland. Subsense’s real-time data streams supported a 80% reduction in required vessel and ROV time, and a potential saving of millions of NOK, because the search area was narrowed down from 26 structures to six.
All of Aker Solutions’ intelligent products are fully digitally enabled and underpinned by our industry-leading Integral data platform.
