Our Sea Swift solution is an innovative platform concept, that can be conductor supported or with a jacket, and offers a tried and tested solution that is versatile and flexible, across a number of offshore applications around the world.
The platform can be transported on a standard supply vessel and installed using conventional drilling and lifting techniques from a drilling rig.
Minimum Facilities Platform
In shallow water applications, our Sea Swift solution reduces maintenance and well capital costs by utilising dry trees and enabling access provision by crew boat or helicopter. It also allows all installation operations to be carried out by a standard jack-up rig without additional installation vessels and without a large investment in traditional platform structures. With the Sea Swift there are no constraining lead times for material and manufacture. This helps to reduce overall associated project costs and the speed at which it is delivered, significantly fast-tracking production opportunities.
The Sea Swift wellhead tower is a low-cost option that is delivered significantly faster than traditional platforms and can rapidly increase production from platforms constrained by existing slots. It also offers the ultimate application for pre-drilling operations, enabling wells to be drilled, completed, with dry trees installed, before the arrival of the main platform. This allows pipelines to be laid and tied-in before platform delivery and its simple hook-up method enables oil and gas production to begin as soon as the platform is delivered.
In its largest configuration, Sea Swift can take the form of a significant platform. The Sea Swift modular design concept allows a central wellbay module, typically containing up to 12 slots to be combined with separate process modules. This innovative modular design allows for a significant sized platform to be installed, whilst maintaining the benefits of our Sea Swift concept. The modular platform system has also been considered for landlocked developments, where access to and from the port of disembarkation is narrow. Modular sections that are 12ft wide are easily transported on the back of a standard low loader and delivered to the port. And the single sections can then be shipped to the development side and constructed into a standard topside facility.
