Apollo was approached by a major North Sea operator to help them understand the implications of a 3rd party tie back into their infrastructure. The client needed to know how this would impact production, if there were any metering implications and compatibility issues with electrical and controls.
With a growing reputation for providing reactive, technically led support, Apollo conducted a feasibility study for the development and production feasibility of tying back, processing and redelivering the fluids from the new development.
As the scope developed, Apollo conducted flow assurance studies to understand the effects of peak flow and to review subsea architecture to discover any potential bottlenecking issues.
Further using our previous experience, we were also able to provide a cost-estimate of the project, this meant that the client was able to see the potential benefits or issues that might be involved with the development allowing for more accurate forecasting and cost saving benefits.
