Subsea Services Alliance, the collaboration among Helix Energy Solutions Group, OneSubsea and Schlumberger, has announced the first joint technology project between OneSubsea and Helix to engineer and manufacture a 15,000-psi intervention riser system.
This technology advances the alliance’s objectives to offer well intervention solutions to service the increasing number of high-pressure wells in the subsea environment. The system, which will be available on a rental basis in mid-2017, is being engineered and built at OneSubsea facilities in Leeds, UK.
Helix President and CEO Owen Kratz said, “This new jointly owned system will allow us to service a wider range of our client’s well stock. It shows that even in a downturn we are able to target new and exciting opportunities.”
OneSubsea CEO Mike Garding stated, “By combining the operational expertise of Helix Energy Solutions with OneSubsea’s world-class engineering and manufacturing capability, we are creating well access and control packages that will expand today’s operating envelope to deeper and higher temperature environments. The announcement for the 15,000-psi intervention riser system is one of the first steps we are taking on the road to become the pioneers in subsea well intervention.”
