Proserv Makes Real Waves in Subsea Sector after Landing a Significant Contract in Angola

Market-leading energy services company Proserv has won a multi-million dollar contract in Angola, underpinning the company’s fast-evolving subsea status and increasing demand for its sampling system innovations.

Proserv is to design and manufacture a subsea sampling system for BP’s PSVM field development which, with a water depth of 2,000 meters, is believed to be the deepest offshore project in Africa.

The system, which is being designed, manufactured and tested by Proserv’s dedicated teams in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, can go to a maximum water depth of 2,500 metres as well as interface with two and four-slot subsea manifolds. It is also fully compliant with corrosion society, NACE International, and meets the high engineering standards set by the American Petroleum Institute.

Chief executive officer at Proserv, David Lamont, said: “This contract win represents another significant achievement for Proserv. It underpins the strong track record we are continuing to build around the world by consistently delivering robust technology systems and services for customers on time and to the highest standards including overall compliance with very stringent technical specifications.

“With an established track record spanning over 35 years in the sampling services sector, we have strengthened our capabilities and expertise through organic growth and strategic acquisitions. This has resulted in us capturing a large share of the subsea market and with the increasing demand for flow assurance and reservoir analysis, we fully intend to set the pace as the leading global player in the subsea sampling field.”

Proserv’s sampling system will interface with the subsea production system to support the monitoring of PVT properties in the production fluid as various levels of these elements can cause flow assurance issues such as scale build up.

The cylinders for the sampling system will be designed at Proserv’s specialist manufacturing center in Greenbank, Tullos, with the whole sampling system to be manufactured and assembled at the company’s Birchmoss facility in Aberdeenshire.

The contract is the second one that Proserv has undertaken for BP Angola on the PSVM development. The company previously provided two similar subsea sampling systems for Block 18 through FMC Technologies.

Proserv, which is headquartered in Westhill, Aberdeenshire, has fast emerged as a leading industry specialist in exploration & production, drilling, and infrastructure technical solutions and services to the global energy industry.

The company has experienced exceptional growth over the past 12 months particularly in the subsea services sector.
