Removing interfaces and simplifying execution
Successful offshore projects require the right mix of skills, experience, ideas, and understanding from inception to execution. At Baker Hughes, we understand that this mix changes as the project grows, develops and adapts through the design stages. By working with you at every step, we harness the depth and breadth of our experience to maximize the impact on your project outcomes.
Simplified solutions to unlock field-development potential
When projects are first being considered, our reservoir engineers and financial analysts work with our system engineers to appraise the field potential and opportunities for phasing or enhanced recovery strategies. We then balance them against well constructions, host options and subsea production systems (SPS), and subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) architectures to confirm feasibility and routes to maximize return on investment.
As development concepts start to emerge, our detailed understanding of the complete system (from reservoir through well construction and completion, SPS and SURF, to the topside process equipment), allows us to take a holistic, life-of-field view of the challenges and opportunities presented. We work as system integrators and technology specialists to optimize and de-risk solutions early in the design process, assembling multi-disciplinary teams to assess interfaces and trade-offs between commercial, technical, execution, and supply options.
Robust final investment decisions
With project definition starting to grow, we draw on the depth of our engineering and project execution experience to address all significant risks and opportunities, providing the most robust case for final investment decision and seamless transition to project execution. As part of this process, we drive increased execution efficiency by optimizing designs and delivery schedules across traditional supply boundaries to reduce lead times and increase the resilience of the program to traditional execution risks.
Seeing the bigger picture
Our ability to take a holistic view of field-development planning—assessing the design, construction, installation, operation and decommissioning of the entire system from reservoir to host—allows us to see the bigger-picture opportunities, as well as the risks presented by unforeseen knock-on consequences of small changes.
We create simplified solutions and innovative commercial models to unlock field development potential and work with you at every stage of your project as trusted partner, rather than traditional supplier.
