LLOG orders multi-phase pumping system for Who Dat
LLOG Exploration has awarded TechnipFMC an integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract for the Who Dat field in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
LONDON, PARIS and HOUSTON– LLOG Exploration has awarded TechnipFMC an integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (iEPCI) contract for the Who Dat field in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
This includes the delivery and installation of a multi-phase pumping system, including a manifold, umbilical termination assembly, power umbilical, jumper and topsides control equipment.
The 2MW 10ksi multi-phase pump station is optimized for the high gas content in the field. The station leverages field-proven pump hydraulics with TechnipFMC’s high-speed permanent magnetic motor technology and subsea system design. This, the company claims, provides operational flexibility in subsea boosting.
The Who Dat field is in Mississippi Canyon blocks 503, 504 and 547 in 945 m (3,100 ft) of water. Production began in December 2011.
Hallvard Hasselknippe, president of TechnipFMC’s Subsea business, said: “This award demonstrates our clear leadership position in iEPCI and we are honored that LLOG Exploration is embracing this new business model. We are excited to leverage on our integration and processing expertise to bring our multi-phase pumping system to maximize production from the field, creating added value for our client.”
