Production well hook-up to offshore platform



Our client’s aim was to bring new wells on-stream quicker. One aspect of accelerating the schedule was the pre-fabrication of a well hook-up spool.

Scopus Solution

Using in-house dimensional control methods and state-of-the-art equipment linked to our own bespoke survey software, we undertook offshore and onshore dimensional surveys to predict the final global position of the xmas tree and hook-up spool, with the resulting data applied to the fabrication process.

The spool was fabricated to Scopus dimensions and shipped offshore. Following the installation of the xmas tree to the location we had predicted, the hook-up spool was successfully installed first time, achieving a 100% improvement in production schedule.

This method has been tested now on multiple occasions reducing turnaround time from tree-on to first production.
