On Thursday Chevron Corp. and Total reported that they have decided to sanction the Anchor project – a pioneering deepwater high-pressure development.

Shortly after the offshore players announced their final investment decision, Schlumberger reported that its OneSubsea unit will provide the industry’s first fully integrated subsea production system rated up to 20,000 pounds per square inch (psi).

Under the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract awarded by Chevron U.S.A. Inc., OneSubsea will supply vertical monobore production trees and multiphase flowmeters rated up to 20,000 psi, Schlumberger noted in a written statement emailed to Rigzone. The EPC contract also calls on OneSubsea to provide:

  • Production manifolds and an integrated manifold multiphase pump station rated to 16,500 psi
  • Subsea controls and distribution.

“We are delighted that Chevron has awarded OneSubsea the industry’s first 20,000-psi integrated deepwater project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico,” commented OneSubsea President Don Sweet. “Our innovative technologies optimize project efficiency and help reduce cycle time. This project is an example of our commitment to drive customer performance and help Chevron unlock their next frontier of deepwater oil and gas resources.”

Schlumberger noted the equipment to be deployed in the Anchor project falls under a 20-year subsea equipment and services master order for Chevron’s projects in the Gulf of Mexico. It added that it received the EPC contract in March of this year.
