Successful startup for OneSubsea boosting systems in Gulf of Mexico

Installed in depths of approximately 7000 ft (2100 m), the subsea boosting systems consist of three retrievable 3.0 MW single-phase pump modules, which are landed in their pump stations, along with the subsea controls and power distribution system.

The associated pump control and instrumentation equipment with the variable speed drive and step-up transformer are located topside.

“We strive to deliver the solutions that help customers reduce costs while increasing recovery from the reservoir, and in this case, our subsea boosting technology is enabling the customer to optimize production from one of the world’s deepest subsea reservoirs,” said Mike Garding, president of OneSubsea, Schlumberger.
