Schlumberger Announces Subsea Control Reliability Milestone

November 20, 2009 at 11:48 pm Leave a comment

Schlumberger announced that its subsea electronic control module has passed the historical milestone of more than a quarter million operational hours in the field with 100% reliability.

            More than 30 modules have been deployed successfully for the control and monitoring of flow boosting pumps and subsea well production. As a power and networking module, its expanded applications include intelligent well control and operation. 

            Schlumberger subsea control and monitoring technology is an enabler for surveillance in the subsurface and subsea domain delivering an unprecedented level of reliability that is critical to the subsea industry with its high intervention costs.

            “Subsea control systems must have reliability as a primary function due to costs involved in remediation following a failure. The reliability of the Schlumberger solution is embedded in subsea applications commercially available today, as well as those under development,” said Andy Hendricks, VP Schlumberger Subsea. “Our subsea light vessel intervention control system also uses this technology as part of its safety system to control subsea trees and the intervention package.”

            This high-bandwidth communication subsea control module has been developed using design and engineering processes created specifically for the subsea environment. Long-term accelerated life-testing has demonstrated system survivability for more than 50 years and under conditions far beyond normal operating environments. The module will be used with upcoming subsea technology deployments around the world.
