Aker Solutions' new integrated approach to subsea field design aims to accelerate field development and maximize performance through the life of the field.

With the firm’s newly introduced intelligent subsea approach, which combines modular, optimized and configurable subsea equipment with automated design, Aker Solutions says engineering hours can be slashed by 70% and the time it takes to generate optimal subsea field layouts can be cut by 75%. Further, the cost of field development capex can be halved, the company says.

The integrated approach to field design allows both the subsea and topside systems to be optimized under concepts that can be developed more rapidly with the aid of digital tools. The concept sees standardized and digitally-enabled products configured quickly and are delivered with accelerated timelines, reducing the time to first production.

Then, as the field matures, the use of condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and simplified system enhancement can further maximize life of field performance with enhanced recovery and extend field life.

"Digitalization of our work process and new applications are transforming field design, radically accelerating development and delivering actionable insight to maximize performance through the life of a field," said Aker Solutions Chief Executive Officer Luis Araujo. "Our system thinking and intelligent solutions are a revolution in subsea developments. Intelligent Subsea is enhancing recovery, saving cost and increasing value through life of field."

"With our industry-leading all-electric and subsea gas compression technology, we extended the frontier for subsea production. We believe Intelligent Subsea will set a new frontier for customer value in projects around the world," said Araujo.
