Kvaerner’s unmanned platform “Subsea on a Stickâ€?

Kvaerner have recently developed an Unmanned Wellhead Platform named “Subsea on a Stickâ€?® (SoS) for fast track projects strongly competitive with subsea tieback solutions and highly cost effective for development of marginal fields. The standard design for Subsea on a Stick® will also lead to cost effective projects for Wellhead Platforms at clients’ specific requirements. Subsea on a Stick® is for use as infill and on the outskirts and surrounding previously developed oil fields, and for marginal fields, with tieback to a host platform. The basis for Subsea on Stick® is a “minimizedâ€? facility and equipment, giving the clients an option to produce a field rather than abandon a field with a marginal commercial upside. Subsea on a Stick® is robust for a wide range of Jack Up drilling rigs operating around the world.

Together with an efficient fabrication for fast track projects, Subsea on a Stick® will lead to both CAPEX and OPEX savings. The “iKvaerner™â€?- material handling systems and methodology is built-in for easy access to the wellheads for well-recovery operations. Kvaerner’s standardized and effective solutions for Subsea on a Stick® will give clients a field developed at significantly reduced cost and the ability to more cost effective operations with improved oil production from the fields.
