Investment Prospects Following the Oil Price Fall

With oil & gas production from mature fields declining, prospects offshore and in deeper waters are attracting more attention as a source to meet increasing oil & gas consumption. Such projects require Subsea Umbilicals, Risers & Flowlines (SURF) to be developed. According to visiongain’s analysis the global SURF market will reach $7.73bn in 2015.

Key regions such as West Africa, South America, the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea will draw a lot of interest with regards to the growth of their subsea market. Due to SURF’s pivotal role in connecting subsea production with surface systems, the SURF market has many opportunities within these regions and in new emerging markets in parts of Asia-Pacific, Europe and Africa

Subsea production of oil & gas is very complex, with the production wellhead situated on the seabed rather than on a platform. As such, a vast amount of technological solutions are required to ensure successful oil & gas production, in environments where human activity is not possible.

When considering the SURF system it can be divided into two main groups:
• Umbilicals – these are control elements that have no contact with produced fluids
• Risers and Flowlines – these elements become the main transport system for produced fluids from the subsea production system to the surface processing system.

An umbilical, or umbilical cable, is a static or dynamic cable that is the vital link between subsea production and processing systems and the surface, as well as between elements within the larger subsea system via flying leads. Umbilicals are composite cables that have the ability to carry out a large range of processes. Their purpose includes: hydraulic power and chemicals; electric power; and telecommunications (fibre optics). Umbilicals are able to complete an assortment of tasks, including activating wells, managing subsea control panels, feeding information about temperatures, pressures, flows and well integrity back to the surface control teams, supplying hydraulic and electric power to wellheads and manifolds, as well as delivering chemicals to the subsea wells and into the production flows.

Flowlines transport unprocessed fluids from the subsea well to the riser. The riser then transports the fluids to the surface processing system. They are part of the wider flowline, riser and pipeline system, although retain very distinctive characteristics. The flowline is also called the production line or import line in some cases and is separate from the pipeline system.

Risers connect the flowlines to the surface facility. They provide transportation of the production fluid, as well as transporting injection fluids, control fluids and gas lift to the subsea system. Due to their vertical positioning, risers experience a range of incredibly harsh conditions, and as such, are susceptible to fatigue.
