ICS Triplex to control Subsea Compression Pilot Project
A key advantage of the AADvance system is its scalability in size, safety and availability. This flexibility allowed Aker Solutions to specify the safety level, scale and fault tolerance of specific processes within its system. As a result, ICS Triplex engineers can adapt the control system to meet the specific needs of the project and fit into special metal enclosures designed to withstand high vibration and submersion on the ocean floor.The Ormen Lange field is the first large-scale offshore field with all production stations on the seabed one of the most challenging production areas of the North Sea. Stormy seas, strong currents and an uneven seabed make production particularly problematic. Since the site is being developed without using conventional offshore platforms, compression facilities will be required in order to maintain required production levels and maximize gas recovery.
