Advisian front-end methodology was streamlined for a Subsea, Umbilicals, Risers & Flowlines (SURF) scope in order to assess potential development concepts. Determination of a single functional design suitable for efficient, economic and safe operation was achieved in less than 12 weeks.
The Advisian upstream offshore division (INTECSEA) was engaged to provide concept selection to determine the optimum subsea infrastructure for tie back to an 800 MMscfd gas FPSO. The objective was to identify, define and evaluate potential development concepts, leading to a single recommended SURF concept for the subsequent FEED project phases.
The key challenge was to deliver a robust development concept on a tight schedule (less than 12 weeks).
