BP and Enpro Subsea have started execution of a Global Frame Agreement aimed at providing an enhanced subsea architecture and smart standardization using Enpro’s Flow Access Module (FAM) technology.
Enpro Subsea supplied the FAM technology to BP on the Kepler K3 project in the Gulf of Mexico.
The patented Flow Access Module (FAM) technology enables fast track, capital efficient subsea tiebacks.
On the K3 project, BP used FAM to install multiphase metering, water cut metering and sand detection at the Xmas tree end of a 3.2 km single spur tieback in addition to hydrate remediation and flow assurance hydraulic intervention module adjacent to the manifold.
Following the success of the Kepler K3 project, Enpro and BP are now collaborating on follow up FAM projects, including BP’s Ariel 6 which is due to be installed later in 2019.
Ian Donald, managing director of Enpro Subsea said: “We appreciate the opportunity to support the BP team in providing innovative field development solutions which encapsulate the benefits of standard subsea hardware and FAM flexibility to reduce cost, risk and time to first oil. We believe Enpro’s enhanced production technologies are fully aligned with BP’s strategy of improving operating performance of existing and new assets with capital efficient solutions.”
