OneSubsea®, a Cameron and Schlumberger company, has delivered the world’s first subsea Multiphase Compressor to Statoil for the Gullfaks South field in the North Sea.
The subsea multiphase compressor enables boosting of unprocessed wet gas production fluids, while eliminating the need for an upstream separation facility or an anti-surge system, making it the industry’s only true wet gas compressor. It is expected to increase the recovery rate for the Gullfaks South Brent reservoir by 22 million boe.
OneSubsea Chief Executive Officer Mike Garding said, “Statoil is at the forefront of subsea compression. By working in collaboration with Statoil, we have been able to develop an optimal solution to help them advance their subsea factory strategy.”
