LLOG deploys FAM technology in the Gulf of Mexico
LLOG Exploration delivered first production from its Crown & Anchor field in the Gulf of Mexico in June.
ABERDEEN, UK– LLOG Exploration delivered first production from its Crown & Anchor field in the Gulf of Mexico in June.
This is the first of multiple deployments by LLOG ofEnpro Subsea’s patented flow access module (FAM) technology. In August 2017, Enpro won an engineering and procurement contract for the delivery and installation of 12 FAMs.
According to Enpro, FAM creates an enhanced production ‘USB port’ within the jumper envelope. This enables the operator to use standard subsea xmas trees and manifolds, with the FAM providing life of field flexibility within the system design, delivering ‘Smart Standardization’ and the capability to maximize the ultimate recovery from their subsea wells.
LLOG is using FAM to enable independently retrievable multi-phase metering located within the jumper envelope between the XT and the manifold. Additionally, FAM enables a range of enhanced production options including water cut metering, flow assurance, hydraulic intervention and fluid sampling, allowing the operator to adapt the technology within the FAM to suit the needs of the reservoir.
