Sea Swift offshore platform

The Sea Swift is a platform solution that provides rapid returns for oil and gas, CCS, offshore wind, and offshore green hydrogen developments. Field tested and trusted.

A versatile production platform designed for rapid returns

Designed to minimise build and implementation times, reduce CAPEX, emissions and time to first production, our flagship offshore platform Sea Swift is trusted by operators all around the world.

Its modular and flexible nature means it can be adapted to meet any number of field development needs, it has a wide range of benefits, making it the perfect solution for oil and gas, offshore carbon capture and storage (CCS), offshore wind, and offshore green hydrogen developments. Its versatile nature means subsea structures and topsides can be mixed and matched to specific field development requirements. 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.

Structure designs include:

  • Monopiles
  • Conductor supported
  • Jackets

Topsides designs can be:

  • Over 1000te in weight on jackets, and up to 650te for Conductor Supported designs
  • Digitally enhanced with the latest offshore monitoring and automation technology
  • 100% renewably powered

We can provide comprehensive EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation) support that covers everything from analysis to design, fabrication, project management, and offshore installation.

Introducing Sea Swift: our flagship offshore platform solution

A versatile platform for oil and gas developments

Supporting projects ranging from a single well to comprehensive developments, our platforms are designed to enhance the returns of existing projects and transform the economics of non-viable ones. By offering a low-risk, low-cost pathway to reduced time to first oil or gas, as well as lower capex, the Sea Swift provides a transformative solution that maximises efficiency and profitability.

We place high value on increasing local content in the locations that we operate and look to work with local fabrication partners and source materials from in region wherever possible.

A Sea Swift monopile or conductor supported platform design can be fully installed using a jack-up, or other existing in-country infrastructure, and our phased approach to the installation process means that drilling can begin, whilst topsides structures are finalised.

Further benefits include:

  • Lower capex
  • Accelerated time to first oil and gas
  • Robust design
  • Supports industry decarbonisation

CO2 platform for CCS developments

If you’re considering a platform for reintroducing CO2 into an offshore storage location, you may have the option of utilising an existing platform in a suitable location or building a new one.

For projects requiring a new platform installation, our Sea Swift CO2 platform solution is the ideal choice. Due to its flexible nature, it can serve as a crucial hub for injecting CO2 into depleted offshore reserves. The platform topsides can be easily modified to include the required components, including CO2 compressors and storage infrastructure designed to withstand the specific properties and behaviour of CO2, that are crucial to optimise injection operations. Depending on the number of wells you are planning to inject a monopile, conductor-supported or jacket design could be utilised.

Further benefits include:

  • Configurable design
  • Tailored injection solutions
  • Suitable for one or more wells
  • Ideal CCS field development solution

A superb substation for offshore wind developments

Our substations will efficiently transform and transmit power generated by offshore wind farms to onshore power grids. From initial design and engineering to installation, we ensure that every Sea Swift substation meets the highest industry standards to meet your development requirements.

Versatility is at the heart of what we do, our platforms and substations are no exception. Available in a variety of sizes and configurations, they can be designed to cater to the specific requirements of your wind farm project – whether you need a large, multi-platform substation or a compact and lightweight solution for a smaller, marginal wind development.

Further benefits include:

  • Tailored for offshore wind farms
  • End-to-end solution
  • Efficient power transmission
  • Industry-standard quality

H2 platform for offshore green hydrogen developments

By combining advanced technology with its modular design, we are able to provide the ideal solution for green hydrogen production from your offshore wind development.

Sea Swift H2’s modular design enables scalability, allowing you to adapt and expand your green hydrogen production capacity as needed. Whether you start with a single unit or a large-scale deployment, the inherent flexibility ensures efficient and cost-effective operations. Its modular components can be easily integrated, reducing deployment time and minimising environmental impact.

Sea Swift integrates electrolysis technology to efficiently split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen, so you can confidently produce green hydrogen that meets the most rigorous industry standards.

Further benefits include:

  • Scalable green hydrogen
  • Electrolysis technology agnostic
  • Reduced deployment time
  • Advanced modular design
