Statoil Statfjord Satellite Project (SSP)

Statoil Statfjord Satellite SSP

Norway Blocks 33/9 and 34/7

Landmark: North Sea’s largest subsea project at the time of completion

The Statfjord Satellite Project (SSP) comprises two fields with a total of six four-slot templates. Statfjord North field and Statfjord East field have two production templates with three production wells each, and one water-injection template with four injection wells each. The subsea templates are tied back to the existing Statfjord C (GBS) platform.

The project was executed as an EPC contract with total system responsibility for all technical and administrative interfaces and the fulfillment of all functional specifications. The template design is standardized for all six templates. The subsea equipment is designed for diverless installation, operation and maintenance. Intervention technology is optimized through a common intervention system operating five different ROTs (remote-operated tools).

The original contract included 25 subsea systems of which 22 went to SSP, two to Sleipner East and West and one to the Loke field.

In 2011, FMC will manufacture and supply a workover system to support the Statfjord field. Statfjord is one of the oldest producing fields on the Norwegian continental shelf and one of the largest oil discoveries in the North Sea. Statoil will use the workover system to perform intervention activities on their subsea wells in order to increase performance and enhance oil recovery.  It will be the first standardized workover system supplied to Statoil by FMC.
