UK energy services company Proserv has scored a contract with Apache Corporation for work on the UK Continental Shelf.
The company said it would supply a subsea control system and associated topside and subsea interface equipment for use on the new Callater wells located south of the Beryl Alpha platform in the North Sea.
As part of separate contract Proserv previously completed work for Apache on the Bacchus and Aviat extension wells for the provision of subsea control modules and services in the Forties field.
Proserv said the contract was a “multi-million dollar” one, without revealing the exact amount.
David Lamont, CEO of Proserv, said the deal was proof that there are still major opportunities in a low oil price marketplace “to provide truly smarter solutions that challenge convention and reduce operating costs, extend field-life and maximise ultimate recovery.”
Formerly known as Prospect K, the Apache Callater wells are situated 335 kilometres northeast of Aberdeen. Proserv will deliver four subsea control modules with standard interfaces to provide compatible support for earlier generations of subsea controls equipment and enable future link-ups with other existing field assets in the surrounding area.
Proserv said that the move will provide Apache with a solution to extend field life in the future without affecting the existing subsea control systems.
