This award, by Murphy Exploration & Production Company is for the industry’s longest deepwater subsea multiphase boosting tieback.

Building on a track record of numerous engineering studies, this is the first EPCIC project award for Subsea Integration Alliance, which was formed July 2015 between OneSubsea, Schlumberger, and Subsea 7. The scope of the contract calls for the supply and installation of a subsea multiphase boosting system for the Dalmatian field in the Gulf of Mexico. This includes topside and subsea controls, as well as a 35km integrated power and control umbilical. The alliance enables a turnkey integrated project from design through supply, installation and commissioning.

“OneSubsea has a strong track record of innovation, including world-leading experience in subsea multiphase boosting systems,” Mike Garding, president, OneSubsea, Schlumberger, said. “More than 35 projects, including some 100 subsea pumps, have been delivered since 1994.

“This fit-for-purpose subsea boosting technology will improve Murphy E&P’s ultimate recovery through a cost-effective, record tieback. The innovative business model of the alliance further contributes to greater certainty of cost and return on investment.”

Through the alliance, the organisations will work closely together across their project management teams, sharing knowledge and best practices to identify opportunities for continuous improvement while providing seamless project execution. Murphy E&P will benefit from the removal of interface and design risks associated with conventional subsea solutions. Offshore installation activities are scheduled for 2018.
