Mobile offshore production unit wellbay module

Intelligently engineered, low cost field development solutions.

Why our mobile offshore production unit?

By combining our experience in developing conductor supported platforms (CSP) and large tension decks for drilling rigs, Aquaterra Energy is among the leaders in spearheading development of the mobile offshore production unit (MOPU) wellbay module concept, as a solution to low cost field development.

  • Custom engineered
  • Cost-effective
  • Reduced time to first oil
  • Innovative approach

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 ‘feed’ the production capabilities of the vessel can mean that the economics of marginal developments become unworkable.

However, installing a wellbay module on the hull of the MOPU will remove the requirement for a permanent minimum facilities platform and will also allow the production from multiple wells.

Using our detailed knowledge of how risers behave in varying marine conditions, we are able to push the boundaries of what was traditionally considered limiting conditions for production risers, unsupported by a jacket. This, combined with our detailed understanding of the capabilities of jack-up rigs and the operational requirements of drilling, position us to offer the overall expertise to specify, design and install wellbay modules, with the potential for successful production on previously unviable fields.
