Proserv Upgrades Subsea Control Modules for Talos Energy
Proserv’s Subsea Controls business unit has delivered the fifth and sixth upgraded subsea control modules (SCM), including the master control station (MCS) and subsea distribution unit, to Talos Energy.
The Houston based firm contracted Proserv to upgrade six existing original equipment manufacturer (OEM) SCMs, build one new Proserv SCM and expand the capabilities of the MCS for both the Typhoon and Boris field redevelopments in the Gulf of Mexico.
“Talos Energy has become a valued customer for Proserv,” said Geert Kooi, VP Operations – Subsea Controls, “It started with their confidence in choosing Proserv for their first GoM wells and has led to them now upgrading wells utilizing our Artemis 2G (A2G) technology, a next generation controls and communications technology for both green and brownfield applications.
“Proserv has provided controls for all Talos subsea capital work within the Phoenix complex, and has worked hard to become the sole subsea controls provider for tiebacks to the Helix Producer 1 (HP1) floating production vessel. As Talos grows and continues its successes as a premier independent operator, we will look to follow suit and continue to support Talos and contribute with future project successes.”
The wells with upgraded SCMs will be installed in Q1, 2019 and will provide Talos with high-speed data management.
