A new, environment friendly technology for the Subsea Industry.
Published: 6 May 2009
Water enters the hydraulic umbilical lines during Work-Over and Completion operations
for Subsea Wells.
Typically 20-45 litres of fluid is dumped and shipped onshore from each hydraulic
control line (depending on water depth, umbilical, hydraulic couplers, etc.) to
get rid of contaminated fluid after the operations. This equals 13,5 barrels of
fluid, worth 260.000 NOK for a three well completion campaign. Disposal and logistics
cost for fluid comes in addition.
The purifier and flush unit will reduce work and expense associated with hydraulic
fluid change-out and disposal.
