offshore-drilling_large Indonesian IDD

PR2 Test Subsea Pipe Clamp – Indonesian Deepwater Development

The Indonesia Deepwater Development, located in the Kutal Basin, is considered to be one of the deepest projects ever undertaken offshore Indonesia, in water depths ranging from 2,500 to 6,000 feet (610 to 1,829 meters). The project consists of five deepwater fields, Gendalo, Maha, Gandang, Gehem and Bangka connecting to two processing hubs: Gendalo Hub (Gendalo, Maha, Gandang) and the Gehem Hub (Gehem). Bangka will be tied back to the West Seno FPU.

Three of the fields — Gandang, Gendalo, and Maha — are located in the Ganal concession while the remaining two — Bangka and Gehem — lie in the Rapak concession. Chevron holds an 80% operating interest in the fields.






shah deniz 2 rig

PSL3G + PR2 Test Pipeline Connectors – Shah Deniz 2

BP is the only Western company involved in gas production activities in Azerbaijan.

BP’s future gas plans for the Caspian are currently focused on developing the next tranche of gas from Shah Deniz Stage 2. It is a huge project, which will deploy subsea production technology in the Caspian and will use advanced drilling solutions to produce wells at some of the world’s highest rates. Specifically, Shah Deniz Stage 2 is set to have 26 production wells at depths of over 6,000 metres. Nine of these wells have already been drilled.

These wells will produce 16bn m3 of gas per year, which will be delivered to markets across Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and South Eastern Europe. Moreover, the Shah Deniz Stage 2 will be the cornerstone of the Southern Gas Corridor linking Caspian resources directly with the European gas market for the first time. In terms of timeline, we are targeting to deliver first gas to Turkey in 2018 and expect to get this new source of Caspian gas to Europe by 2020.


BP Block 18 Angola

Gas + PR2 Test Bare Pipe Connector Block 18 Angola

BP in Angola is one of the fastest growing businesses in BP’s E&P portfolio.

BP’s links with Angola date back to the 1970-’s. In the 1990-’s BP gained substantial offshore deep and ultra-deep water interests in the Lower Congo basin following a merger with Amoco. BP acquired further interests in five new deep and ultra-deep water blocks in the Kwanza and Benguela basins in 2011, giving the company a leading position in Angola with interests in nine blocks accounting for a total acreage of 32,650Km2, and making the Angola Region one of the most important assets in BP’s exploration and production portfolio. BP has to date invested more than $27 billion in its Angola assets and intends to continue its investment in exploration and development in the future.

BP is the operator of blocks 18 and 31 in the deep and ultra-deep waters of the Congo basin, and blocks 19 and 24 in the deep waters of the Kwanza and Benguela basins. BP is a non-operating partner in blocks 15 and 17 in the deep waters of the Congo basin, in blocks 20, 25 and 26 in the deep waters of the Benguela and Kwanza basins, as well as the Angola LNG project in Soyo.

Electrical Connector pressure seals

Located off the coast of Australia, Ichthys is a major project primarily producing liquefied natural gas (LNG). Condensate gas is extracted from the offshore field and processed on a semi-submersible platform, which separates gas from liquid prior to transporting the gas via a subsea gas pipeline to the LNG plant near Darwin.

 Ichthys is a world-class liquefied natural gas (LNG) project. Operated by INPEX in partnership with Total, the project will develop large gas and condensate reserves found deep beneath the seabed in waters over 200km from the northwest coast. Learn more about this project and how it enhances our LNG production close to key Asian markets.
