The selected projects, in alphabetical order, are:
New Life After 80 years: “Seria Field Rejuvenation”
Brunei Shell Petroleum Co. Sdn. Bhd.
Located in Brunei Darussalam, the onshore Seria oil field, operated by Brunei Shell Petroleum has been producing since 1930 with over 1.1 billion barrels of oil produced to date. In recent years, a renewed drive at rejuvenating the field has led to the development of a series of Near Field Exploration (NFE) offshore blocks in the Seria North Flank (SNF) area. Through an integrated approach to field development, partnership with various vendors, deployment of SmartWell® / SmartField® capabilities and the application of cutting edge “fish-hook” well technology, the SNF project has matured over 120 mln barrels of oil with cost savings of over 100mln USD compared to an offshore development concept. The SNF project success has enabled the maturation of a new project which will be developed with a land drilling campaign stretching over the next 5 -8 years.
Odoptu First Stage Production
ExxonMobil Development Co.
Odoptu First Stage Production (FSP) is part of the phased development of the Sakhalin-1 fields (Chayvo, Odoptu, and Arkutun-Dagi) in far-east Russia. The Odoptu field, offshore Sakhalin Island, had significant impediments to development including environmental sensitivities and a harsh sub-arctic environment. The Yastreb drill rig, was relocated from the Chayvo field to drill nine Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) wells at Odoptu. Three Odoptu
wells were among the seven longest ERD wellsdrilled in the world, including the world record OP-11 well. Using ExxonMobil’s Fast Drill Process and Integrated Hole Quality technology, the world record OP-11 well reached a total measured depth of 12,345 meters and a horizontal reach of 11,475 meters. The $US 2.4B Odoptu FSP development completed in 36 months from start of front-end engineering design to startup of the Odoptu field.
Startup was achieved on schedule, within development cost expectations, and with an excellent environmental and safety record.
Parque das Conchas Project
Shell Brazil Ltd.
The BC-10 Parque das Conchas project is an ultra-deepwater heavy oil development offshore Brazil. The first phase of the project comprises the development of 3 subsea fields tied back to a centrally located FPSO. Nine production wells and 1 gas injection well are connected via 140 kilometers of pipelines and flowlines, 14 flowline sleds, 2 production manifolds, 2 artificial lift manifolds housing a total of 6 vertical separation caissons with 1500 hp ESP’s, 25 jumpers, serviced by 50 kilometers of high voltage umbilicals. The project results from a 9-year effort to unlock very challenging reserves, requiring the development of several pieces of new technology. It was only made possible through the excellent cooperation of many people in Shell, JV partners, 3rd party vendors, local authorities and Brazilian agencies. The team, located in many different places around the globe worked in a truly globally integrated fashion to create its success.
Yemen LNG Project
Total E&P (Middle East Division)
Yemen LNG is a fully integrated project led by TOTAL which spans the entire gas value chain, commencing with the production of recycled gas from fields in central Yemen, transmission along a 320 km built pipeline, processing and liquefaction at a grass root 6.7 MTPA plant on the Southern coastline, to loading and shipping in LNG tankers which transport the LNG to international markets. The integration of Yemen LNG, the largest and most complex industrial project ever undertaken in Yemen, was successfully executed in a pristine environment and a difficult tribal context. An integrated project management solution was adopted to develop this 4.5 billion USD project, overcoming a whole set of human, technical, environmental, financial and safety challenges in a timely and efficient manner. Yemen LNG project has stimulated a major step in Yemen’s investment environment and constitutes for the country an economic booster as well as an industrial and financial success on the world stage.
