PROSERV AWARDED SUBSEA CONTROL SYSTEM FOR ELGOOD TIEBACK

Controls technology company Proserv has been commissioned by Independent Oil and Gas (IOG) to provide a complete subsea controls system for IOG’s Core Project Phase 1 development in the UK Southern North Sea.
Proserv will be responsible for the engineering, construction and installation of a complete subsea control system for the Elgood single-well subsea tieback. The system will consist of a master control station, subsea control module, subsea distribution and instrumentation.
The Elgood gas field is part of the Blythe Hub, which is situated 35km off the coast of Norfolk in the Southern North Sea and expected to come onstream in 2021. Elgood is being co-developed with the nearby Blythe field as a single subsea well tied back to an unmanned platform at Blythe. The field was discovered by Enterprise Oil in 1991 and is 50% owned and operated by IOG, with the remaining 50% interest belonging to CalEnergy Resources (UK) Ltd.
Iain Smith, Senior Vice President – Proserv Controls, said: “We are pleased to be awarded this work in such uncertain times and it further strengthens our reputation as a subsea controls supplier of choice, demonstrating significant value to our customers by way of best-in-class reliability and no future obsolescence worries. We look forward to working with IOG and their SURF contractor to ensure the cost-effective, safe and timely execution of this development.”
Mark Hughes, Chief Operating Officer, IOG, said: “We are pleased to be working with Proserv, a recognised specialist provider of subsea controls systems, on the Elgood well, which is an important part of our Phase 1 development.”
IOG is 50% owner and operator of three fields in the UK sector of the Southern North Sea, which collectively will form Phase 1 of IOG's Core Development, Southwark, Blythe and Elgood. The remaining 50% interests are held by CalEnergy. The Elgood Field was discovered in 1991 by well 48/22-4, drilled by Enterprise Oil, but was not progressed to development due to its perceived size and gas prices at that time.
Proserv based in Aberdeen, UK is a controls technology company incorporating two divisions, Proserv Controls, which encompasses our innovative subsea controls solutions, alongside our topside, IWOCS, sampling, and measurement offerings to the oil & gas and renewables markets, and Gilmore, a Proserv Company, known for its globally renowned control valves.
