Optime Subsea has completed a two well plug & abandonment campaign on the Jette field for Aker BP, on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

The work was completed utilizing Optime Subsea’s Subsea Controls and Intervention Light System (SCILS).

Aker BP chose to demobilize the SCILS after its two well P&A campaign on the Jette field in the North Sea.

In preparation for its new completions work on the Skogul field, Aker BP will perform the complete interface testing towards the Xmas tree at Optime Subsea’s workshop in Notodden, Norway.

Optime Subsea’s SCILS moves the hydraulic control from topside to subsea, resulting in no need for topside container and a dramatic reduction in size of the umbilical and reel. The SCILS have a total weight of 3 – 7T, depending on the reservoir size and configuration.

“Aker BP continues to search for value creation by exploring new and innovative ways to optimize its assets and operations. We decided using Optime Subsea’s SCILS because it ties well into our strategy of continuous improvement and simplification of our well access operations. Using new technology always brings some risk associated with it, but the integrated planning resulted in a successful execution,” said Mads Rodsjo, VP D&W Functional Excellence in Aker BP.

“We are very proud of how well the operations and one team relationship with Aker BP developed. We have a few more technology developments up our sleeve, but for the most part, our controls and intervention systems are modular and field proven and truly cutting-edge in the industry. We look forward to grow the global supply of SCILS and similar systems” added Jan-Fredrik Carlsen, CEO of Optime Subsea.
