The industry has standardized, simplified and downsized the equipment in recent years, but one more change is needed to drive a sustainable future for the subsea industry and the world it serves.
With Aker Solutions’ smart subsea approach, the time required to generate optimal subsea field layouts can be cut by 75% and the cost of field development investment halved. Accelerated field development is achieved by combining Aker Solutions modular, optimized and configurable subsea equipment with an automated design that can reduce engineering time by up to 70%.
Intelligent Subsea meets the current and future needs of subsea production by combining three key value propositions:
– Taking an integrated approach to field design where submarine and superior systems are optimized and concepts can be rapidly developed with the help of advanced digital tools.
– Standardized and digitally enabled products that can be quickly configured to customer needs and delivered with accelerated schedules – reducing time to first production
– Maximized field performance life with enhanced recovery and field life enabled by condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and simplified system enhancement as the field matures
“Digitizing our work process and new applications is transforming field design, radically accelerating development and providing actionable insights to maximize performance over the life of a field,” said Luis Araujo, CEO of Aker Solutions. “Our thinking about the system and smart solutions is a revolution in submarine developments. Intelligent Subsea is improving recovery, saving costs and increasing value over the life of the field. ”
“With our industry-leading fully electric and subsea gas compression technology, we have expanded the boundary for subsea production. We believe Intelligent Subsea will set a new frontier for customer value in projects around the world, ”said Araujo.
