High pressure, high integrity, fast response subsea landing string for BP’s Shah Deniz
Objectives
  • BP required a subsea completion safety system for the well commissioning of Shah Deniz 2 (SD2), a subsea development in Azerbaijan; This project is one of BP’s largest investments requiring a 12 year drilling program to access 50 trillion cubic feet of gas
  • Particular requirements were for a fast response system rapidly securing these high rate wells while taking out some of the complexity of Expro’s deepwater electo- hydraulic control system
  • Technology that was robust for long-term use in a harsh operating environment with well pressures of up to 15,000 psi, with the capability of functioning in wells where there is the potential for debris
  • The capability to provide full local support, including a Baku facility to fully service equipment over the duration of the contract, and engineering support
  • BP were looking for a partner that would support and encourage the development of Azeri nationals 
Expro Excellence
  • Expro developed a new rapid response control system, focused on safety critical functions
  • Developed a new 15K lubricator valve, based on Expro’s unique high integrity ball valve (HIBV) technology
  • Delivered a 15K ELSA-HP system on schedule and have conducted a successful SIT (system integration test)
  • New facility in Baku, designed for full subsea service capability
  • Recruitment of four Azeri nationals and investment in a comprehensive training programme, that included secondments to Broussard and Aberdeen 
Value to client
  • Delivery of a system that that will enable the safe completion and flow back of high rate, high pressure wells
  • A system that has met BP’s exacting technical requirements and has passed through BP’s TRAP (Technical Risk Assurance Process)
  • On time delivery of a complex system allowing BP to maintain the schedule on one of their most important field developments
  • Design and qualification of equipment built on established technology that meets BP’s exact requirements for the SD2 project
  • Design and qualification of equipment which has an application on other BP developments
