Subsea Production Alliance

Boost output, increase ultimate recovery, and reduce costs from subsea oil and gas fields

Deepwater wells are marvels of engineering and illustrate what can be accomplished with the right combination of ingenuity, imagination, engineering, and cooperation. But even the most sophisticated deepwater projects have resulted in less than desirable recovery rates compared with ultimate recovery from shelf and land wells.

Subsea production systems have traditionally been designed and installed separately from in-well production and completion systems, even though they share a common interface at the subsea tree and ultimately function as one joint system. The result is significant installation costs and less than optimal production rates. And when production falls off, workover and intervention operations for subsea fields are often too cost prohibitive.

To address these challenges, Aker Solutions and Baker Hughes have formed the Subsea Production Alliance. This alliance combines the industry-leading completions and artificial lift portfolio of Baker Hughes with the deep and broad subsea boosting, controls and intervention offerings of Aker Solutions. The alliance will bring to market fully integrated in-well and subsea production systems engineered to work in unison to enable increased production and improved ultimate recovery from both deepwater developments and mature subsea fields while reducing installation and production costs with game-changing intervention systems.

Clear opportunities exist to develop best-in-class integrated production systems and cost-effective well intervention systems for subsea applications. Only the Subsea Production Alliance can bring together the industry’s richest portfolio of technology and expertise to enable operators to improve production and recovery from subsea fields effectively and economically.
