HOUSTON  Schlumberger has secured an award for OneSubsea and its alliance partner, Subsea 7, from Kosmos Energy Gulf of Mexico Operations LLC for an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for the Odd Job Field in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM).

Through the EPCI contract, OneSubsea will supply a subsea multiphase boosting system, topside equipment and a 16-mile integrated power and control umbilical. Project management, engineering, assembly and testing will be performed at the OneSubsea facilities in Bergen and Horsøy, Norway, while transport to the field and installation will be carried out by Subsea 7.

Don Sweet, OneSubsea's director of Subsea Production Systems, said, “The system will be tied back to the existing facility, thereby achieving significant cost and energy savings, as well as reducing CO2 emissions, all while improving Kosmos Energy’s ultimate recovery.”

An entity managed by Ridgewood Energy Corp. is also an owner in the Odd Job Field.

According to OneSubsea, it has been shown that the application of subsea multiphase boosting can increase production rates by 20% to more than 200%, in addition to a substantial increase in total recovery as backpressure on the reservoir is offloaded by a seabed processing system.

Subsea Integration Alliance is a non-incorporated strategic global alliance between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea. Subsea Integration Alliance CEO Olivier Blaringhem, added, “Our alliance will improve Kosmos’ field economics while lowering complexity, cost and risk to achieve production objectives safely, on time and within cost targets.”
