Sea Swift offshore platform

Adaptable and modular, Sea Swift is the minimum facility offshore platform for rapid returns in shallower waters.

Why our Sea Swift offshore platform?

Our flagship offshore platform Sea Swift delivers rapid returns in shallower waters. The platform has been designed to minimise build and implementation times, to reduce capex, emissions, and time to first oil or gas.

Modular by design, Sea Swift can be adapted to meet a range of field development requirements:

  • Monopile designs – quick to deploy, for when you only need a minimal topside or have one or two wells.
  • Conductor supported designs with up to 500Te topsides – ideal as a stand-alone platform in water depths of up to 100m, or the perfect bolt on to an existing platform when you need extra capacity.
  • Jacket supported designs – for when soil conditions or topsides requirements mean that you need that extra bit of support, or where a CSP is not the preferred option.
  • Smart designs – enhance your topsides with the latest in digital onshore monitoring technology, to reduce offshore trips and day-to-day maintenance/inspection.

Sea Swift is designed to improve the returns of existing projects and transform the economics of non-viable projects – offering a low-risk, low-cost route to reduced time to first oil or gas plus lower capex.

Installed via jack-up, or by using other existing in-country infrastructure, Sea Swift platforms are delivered faster than traditional offshore platforms, typically around 10 – 18 months. Our phased approach to installation means that drilling can begin, whilst topsides structures are finalised.

The end-to-end, simplified design, reduced steel requirement and focus on using in-country logistics and fabrication facilities keeps expenditure low and helps control project costs.
