Intelligently engineered, low cost field development solutions.
By combining our experience in developing conductor supported platforms (CSP) and large tension decks for drilling rigs, Aquaterra Energy is a leading provider of engineering for mobile offshore production units (MOPU) and is spearheading the development of the MOPU wellbay module concept, as a solution to low-cost field development.
Aquaterra Energy has designed, manufactured and installed wellbay modules and tensioning equipment on MOPUs and mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs) in several regions, including the North Sea, Egypt, Asia and West Africa among others. Our team can provide a complete end to end service project solution including conductor/riser analysis, design, fabrication, project management and installation. This is in addition to the ability to project manage and engineer the conversion and delivery of MOPUs in a range of configurations and applications in order to suit a customer’s individual project needs.
We offer a complete package including:
The use of MOPU’s as an economic means of developing a field is widely known, but often the costs involved in installing a platform to support the production capabilities of the vessel can mean that the finances of marginal developments become unworkable. Using detailed knowledge of how risers behave in varying marine conditions, Aquaterra Energy pushes the boundaries of what are traditionally considered to be the limiting conditions for production risers, unsupported by a jacket.
Our detailed understanding of the capabilities of jack-up rigs and the operational requirements of drilling, positions us to offer the overall expertise to specify, design and install wellbay modules, with the potential for successful production on previously unviable fields. Installing a wellbay module on the hull of the MOPU provides development flexibility to use freestanding conductors, tensioned conductors and risers or linking to a lightweight minimum structure. This flexibility provides a range of options for different water depths and well counts.
For marginal or new fields, Aquaterra Energy can provide a flexible solution. If it becomes clear a fixed platform is not economically viable due to a low required well count, or that the production rates are not what was anticipated, the MOPU can be relocated with minimal construction and logistical requirements. Once a field declines, the MOPU can be relocated cost effectively with lower abandonment cost compared to fixed platforms. Alternatively, it enables companies to begin production and generate income ahead of the complete field development, including when a permanent facility is being constructed, transforming project economics.
