4Subsea has secured a contract for delivery of integrity monitor systems for six flexible risers on Statoil’s semi-submersible platform Snorre B in the North Sea.

The company was awarded the contract shortly after the delivery of the fifth system in a row for Statoil’s Snorre A platform.

The monitoring solution improves security and reduces risk of production downtime or riser failure. At the same time, the installation will reduce operational costs, since the need for manual inspection is eliminated, 4Subsea explained.

Peter Jenkins, CEO of 4Subsea, said: “We are pleased that Statoil continuously trusts us to play an important role in maintaining secure and cost efficient production at their installations through the integrity management work we perform on flexible risers and flowlines.”

The monitoring solution is based on 4Subsea’s Amos system, which analyses the condition, integrity and expected service life of the flexible risers.

Furthermore, the contract includes added functionality for measuring and trending condensation of liquid in the annulus vent gas.

4Subsea co-operates closely with Siemens, Statoil’s main provider of automation services on Snorre B, on integrating the monitoring system to existing infrastructure and to fit the totality of solutions deployed for the operator.

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.
