LYSAKER, Norway Aker Solutions has launched Intelligent Subsea, an offering designed to accelerate field development and maximize performance.

According to the company, with its intelligent subsea approach, the time it takes to generate optimal subsea field layouts can be cut by 75% and the cost of field development capex can be halved. Accelerated field development is achieved by combining the company’s modular, optimized, and configurable subsea equipment with automated design which can reduce engineering hours by up to 70%.

Intelligent Subsea addresses the current and future needs of subsea production by combining three core value propositions:

• Adopting an integrated approach to field design where both the subsea and topsides systems are optimized, and concepts can be rapidly developed with the aid of advanced digital tools

• Standardized and digitally-enabled products that can be rapidly configured to customers’ needs and are delivered with accelerated timelines - reducing the time to first production

• Maximized life of field performance with enhanced recovery and extend field life enabled by condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, and simplified system enhancement as the field matures.

CEO Luis Araujo said: “Digitalization of our work process and new applications are transforming field design, radically accelerating development and delivering actionable insight to maximize performance through the life of a field. Our system thinking and intelligent solutions are a revolution in subsea developments. Intelligent Subsea is enhancing recovery, saving cost and increasing value through life of field.”

At Offshore Europe 2019, Aker Solutions is exhibiting at stand 3G40.
