Framo Bags Subsea Contract for Shell’s Draugen Field (Norway)

Framo Bags Subsea Contract for Shell's Draugen Field (Norway)

Framo Engineering, a Schlumberger company, today announced that A/S Norske Shell has awarded the company a 100-million USD contract for the supply of a complete subsea multiphase booster pump system for the Draugen Field in Norway.

The contract includes a complete system for topside power and control, the power and control umbilical, and the complete subsea pump module and manifold. The subsea multiphase booster pump system, which will be installed at some 250 meters water depth, has been designed to contribute to increased oil production in the Draugen Field.

“The world’s first prototype subsea multiphase pump was installed at the Draugen Field in 1994 by Framo. We are pleased to have Shell, a major international subsea player and instrumental in the early phases of the development of our subsea pump systems, engaging our multiphase pumps and subsea process systems,” said Ole Steine, managing director, Framo Engineering. “We look forward to the challenge entrusted to us by Shell, and we are confident in the technology and our Framo team’s support to our customer for this important subsea industry milestone.”

The Draugen subsea multiphase booster pump system will be assembled and tested at the new Framo Engineering advanced test facility in Hosoey, Norway. Field installation is planned for the summer of 2014.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
