TAQA orders subsea system to boost Otter field output
Oil company TAQA has hired OneSubsea, for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of a subsea multiphase boosting system for the Otter field in the UK North Sea.
Through the contract, OneSubsea and its Subsea Integration Alliance partner, Subsea 7, will supply and install a subsea multiphase boosting system including topside and subsea controls, as well as associated life-of-field services.
The project will result in a 30-km subsea tieback to the TAQA-operated North Cormorant platform. This will be the longest subsea multiphase boosting tieback in the UK North Sea.
“This fit-for-purpose subsea boosting system will improve TAQA’s ultimate recovery from an existing asset, through a capital-efficient long tieback,” said Mike Garding, president, OneSubsea, Schlumberger. “We look forward to working with TAQA to maximize the full value of the Otter field.”
