HOUSTON -- Total has awarded Cameron a contract to supply its all-electric subsea production system for use on a North Sea field.
Cameron will deliver its patented CameronDC system, which is the world's first all-electric subsea production system, according to the contractor, for a multi-well development in the North Sea.
The company's workscope includes supply of all-electric subsea trees and an all-electric control system for the K5F two-well development located in the K5 block of the Dutch sector. The control system is configured for expansion to four wells. Installation is planned for mid-2007 with first production expected by the end of the year.
This commitment was made as part of a Technology Cooperation Agreement between Total and Cameron signed in January 2004.
Prior to the signing, Total conducted extensive technical and economic reviews of Cameron's all-electric system to verify its advantages and benefits over electro-hydraulic technologies, including increased production system availability, improved operational functionality, and enhanced environmental performance, says the company.
