ABERDEEN, UK – BP has contracted Proserv to design and manufacture a subsea sampling system for the PSVM multi-field deepwater development offshore Angola.

The system will be designed to work at a maximum water depth of 2,500 m (8,202 ft) as well as interfacing with two- and four-slot subsea manifolds. It will be fully compliant with NACE and API standards.

The equipment will interface with the PSVM subsea production system to support monitoring of PVT properties in the production fluid as there is potential for flow assurance issues such as scale build-up.

Proserv’s manufacturing center close to Aberdeen will produce cylinders for the sampling system, which will be manufactured and assembled at the company’s Birchmoss facility in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Proserv has provided two similar subsea sampling systems previously for BP Angola on block 18 via FMC Technologies.
