The Glider subsea system consists of two wells, tied back approximately seven miles to Brutus via a single 6-inch buried and insulated flowline, which is Shell's first use of this cost-effective flow assurance method. The initial Glider well began production on July 20 and the second well is currently being completed. Reserves for Glider are primarily oil with associated gas.
Gaurdie Banister, Technical Director, Americas Region commented, "Glider features the first application of Shell's new standardized subsea system selection and design process, which leverages Shell's deepwater experience and significantly reduces the cost and time required to achieve first production."
