UK-based exploration and production technical solutions and services provider Proserv has secured two contracts worth more than £15m to provide its advanced subsea controls system for oil and gas projects in North Sea.
As part of the first deal with TAQA, Proserv will provide control solutions for subsea wells, located about 16.5km from the Tern platform in the Cladhan field.
The company will install a system that will use Open Communications Controller (OCC) technology to control three subsea wells for the Cladhan field development project. The system will provide a high-speed network capable of communication speeds up to 1.3Mbps.
The integral OCC within a dual or single SEM arrangement in the subsea control module can provide the operator with an open platform for new and existing subsea developments.
In addition, the platform can be used to provide intelligent communication that is independent of protocol and is IWIS compliant.
It can integrate with all major subsea tree manufacturers and interface with all associated third party subsea devices.
As part of the second contract, awarded by another leading operator, Proserv will use an advanced system to control a number of wells and manifolds.
The solution will include a fibre-optic communications system, which will use Open Communications Hub (OCH) technology to provide complete transparent communications and high-speed data monitoring from the subsea multiphase flow meters and control modules.
Proserv chief executive officer David Lamont said the contracts reflect the company’s strong track record for delivering integrated technology systems on time and budget.
"As a result, Proserv continues to expand both globally and particularly in the North Sea where our strong and expanding client base is testament to our levels of technology and service. We look forward to working with two leading operators in the region," Lamont added.
