Proserv lands subsea contract for BP in Angola

Proserv-QR9iudjz0 sxc.huProserv has won a multi-million dollar subsea contract for BP’s PSVM oilfield located in Block 31 in Angola, which is likely to increase demand for its sampling system innovations

This contract is the second one that Proserv has undertaken for BP Angola on the PSVM development. The company previously provided two similar subsea sampling systems for the oil and gas company’s Block 18 through FMC Technologies.

Proserv will design and manufacture a subsea sampling system for the project which, with a water depth of 2,000m, is believed to be the deepest offshore project in Africa.

The system, designed, manufactured and tested by Proserv, can go to a maximum water depth of 2,500m as well as interface with two and four-slot subsea manifolds.

The system will link with the subsea production system to support the monitoring of pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) properties in the production fluid as various levels of these elements can cause flow assurance issues.

David Lamont, chief executive officer at Proserv, said, “This contract underpins the strong track record we are continuing to build around the world by consistently delivering robust technology systems and services with very stringent technical specifications.”
