Oil and gas production optimization specialist, Enpro Subsea, has moved into its new UK headquarters.
The number of personnel at its facility in Westhill, Aberdeenshire has expanded to over 40 in recent months to support a 100% increase in international projects for its range of enhanced production solutions during the past year, the company said last Friday.
The business, which also has a presence in Houston and Ghana, has seen its patented Flow Access Modules (FAM) technology selected by major and independent operators with over 50 systems now adopted globally.
According to the company, FAM reduces cost and enables maximized ultimate recovery from subsea wells by providing a differentiated subsea field development solution. It creates an enhanced production ‘USB port’ within the jumper envelope, enabling operators to use standard subsea trees and manifolds while enabling the future integration of enhanced production solutions, such as metering, flow assurance, data acquisition and hydraulic intervention.
In addition, the company’s Flow Intervention Services (FIS) technology has been deployed on multi-well hydraulic intervention campaigns in West Africa and will be delivering its 15ksi deepwater FIS in early 2019 with the support of an R&D funding grant from Scottish Enterprise. The company has also been contracted for continued support in the decommissioning of gravity base structures (GBS) in the North Sea.
Earlier this year, Enpro Subsea secured an investment from EV Private Equity, as part of its investment the North Sea businesses.
Enpro Subsea managing director, Ian Donald, said: “Our team aims to cost effectively maximize recovery from subsea wells. The new office move confirms our commitment to continued growth and excellent facilities for both our clients and our employees.”
