Enpro Subsea has signed a global frame agreement to provide its Flow Access Module (FAM) technology to BP on the Kepler K3 project in the Gulf of Mexico.

Under the agreement, Enpro provided enhanced subsea architecture and smart standardisation to BP using its FAM technology.

Enpro will add project-specific technologies to BP’s standard subsea trees and manifolds, reducing project costs and schedule. This will support BP in achieving sanction to first oil in less than a year.

Enpro Subsea managing director Ian Donald 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 appreciate the opportunity to support the BP team in providing innovative field development solutions.”

“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.”

The FAM technology, which enables fast-track and capital-efficient subsea tiebacks, creates an improved production ‘USB port’ within the jumper envelope.

BP used FAM for the installation of multiphase metering, water cut metering and sand detection for the Kepler K3 project.

Enpro and BP are now collaborating on follow up FAM projects, including BP’s Ariel 6 project which is set to be installed later this year.

Enpro Subsea announced a $1.9m investment in its Flow Intervention Services (FIS) technology in February. The investment allowed the company to develop the higher rated 15,000 psi version, extending its capabilities to support high-pressure wells in the Gulf of Mexico.
