Company Updates

8AkerSolutionslogoAker Solutions secured two five-year framework agreements for potential future deliveries of subsea production systems and lifecycle services at BP-operated oil and gas fields globally.

The first five-year contract covers engineering, procurement and construction of subsea production systems for new and maturing developments worldwide. Aker Solutions would bid for work under the contract, which sets out the terms and conditions that would need to be met. The companies also agreed on a five-year servicing agreement, coinciding with the first contract, for any equipment delivered under the first contract and to support previously installed subsea hardware. Both contracts started in August 2016.

"This further expands our long-standing relationship with BP, which spans more than twenty years," said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions. "We look forward to working together to find sustainable solutions for securing needed energy resources from BP's subsea fields around the world." The contracts allow Aker Solutions to bid for work as one of four preferred suppliers for BP's development portfolio across the world.

The size of the framework agreements depend on the amount of work necessary and orders will be booked as they come in.

3CGGlogo copyCGG announces that it has been awarded a major contract by Pemex to deliver an orthogonal wide-azimuth integrated solution designed to optimize subsalt seismic imaging in the geologically complex deep waters of the Perdido area.

A new wide-azimuth survey, covering approximately 10,000 km2, will be acquired perpendicularly over the existing wide-azimuth seismic data acquired by CGG in 2010. Imaging of this first large-scale combined orthogonal wide-azimuth dataset for Pemex is expected to provide significantly enhanced subsalt imaging results due to the improved illumination of the targets beneath the complex salt canopy.

The survey will commence in early 2017 with delivery of Fast Trax pre-stack depth migration RTM results by the end of the year and full production processing results in 2018. The data will be processed in CGG’s Villahermosa and Houston subsurface imaging centers.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “CGG is proud to have been selected to conduct Mexico’s first offshore orthogonal wide-azimuth program to address the significant imaging challenges relating to the presence of complex geology and salt structures in the deepwater Perdido area. CGG has historically been a key provider of high-end seismic services to Pemex and has an invaluable 28-year track record of operational experience in Mexico. We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue developing our longstanding partnership with Pemex to support their exploration & development plans.”

12Trelleborg800x800arTrelleborg announces that it will be developing the next generation of buckling mitigation buoyancy technology. Chevron awarded Trelleborg’s offshore operation a license agreement to develop the patented technology, which includes the design and qualification of this new buoyancy product.

In certain offshore conditions, lateral movement of traditional fixed buoyancy modules can cause soil compaction, increased lateral soil resistance and the formation of berms. This condition can cause secondary regions of high stress, increasing the risk of lateral pipeline buckling.

After years of research and testing, Chevron identified a solution and has partnered with Trelleborg to develop and qualify, a new product. The new solution offers an alternative lateral buckling mitigation strategy using a rotating mechanism compared to standard fixed buoyancy - enhancing reliability and effectiveness of thermal expansion mitigation on subsea pipelines.

“By partnering with Trelleborg offshore, we’re using a new approach to accelerate the deployment of this technology,” stated Antonio Critsinelis, Subsea Pipeline Team Lead with Chevron Energy Technology Company. “This is an important partnership to bridge the gap from technology conception to production.”

John Drury, Managing Director at Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Skelmersdale states: “We are excited to work with Chevron on this joint-development project and are honored they chose Trelleborg as the sole manufacturer and distributor. We believe our knowledge and application expertise will support Chevron’s team to conclude a successful project.”
