The Subsea Tieback Forum opens today with a plenary session at 8 a.m. for all registrants. Keyhote for the opening is scheduled to be Ryan Lance of ConocoPhillips who will speak on "Subsea's Real Challenges." Following the opening, the individual sessions begin. They will cover such topics as hubs, long tiebacks, reliability, real problems and solutions, case studies, and subsea boosting.


Scheduled participation is coming from such operators as Anadarko, Shell, Total, BHP Billiton, ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, and Petrobras, plus subsea equipment and engineering suppliers such as Aker Kvaerner, Technip, Vetco, Intec, TDW Offshore, Oceaneering, and FMC. In addition, there is the individual contact between sessions and on the exhibit floor with other people involved in the same business.


In addition, there is the information to be gleaned from the 100 or so exhibits which will parallel the Forum. Representatives will range from small valve manufacturers to turnkey system suppliers.


ConocoPhillips is the show host and the Society for Underwater Technology is the supporting organization. Forum sponsors are Aker Kvaerner, Cameron, Cross Group, CorrOcean, FMC Technologies, Helix Energy Solutions, Oil States Industries, Technip, Vetco, and the UK Subsea pavilion.

:: Webcast at noon

A special feature today will be the Webcast from the exhibits floor at noon. "Future Subsea Trends, Challenges, and Technology Requirements" is the title of the presentation. The panel will be moderated by Eldon Ball, Editor-in-Chief of Offshore magazine, the leading global publication on offshore operations and technology.


The subsea E&P market will amount to US $68 billion in spending over the next five years, according to a recent report by Infield Systems. This is to be fuelled by the growth of a series of major West African floating production developments, particularly offshore Nigeria and Angola. Capital expenditure on the subsea market is set to reach record levels with the cumulative contribution of the Atlantic Margin of Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico and other West African projects, the report states.

:: SUBSEA TECHNOLOGY NEWS
:: Statoil contracts FMC for Alve subsea systems
Statoil has contracted FMC Technologies to supply subsea systems for the Alve project in the Norwegian Sea. The $55-million contract covers one four-slot template with manifold, one subsea production tree, related control systems, umbilicals, and a protection structure. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 3Q 2007 from Kongsberg, Norway.

Alve is a tieback to the Norne FPSO.

:: PTT awards Arthit development engineering contract
The Petroleum Authority of Thailand has awarded Technip a contract for basic and detailed engineering of four wellhead platforms with subsea pipelines and tie-ins for Arthit gas field in 80 m (262 ft) of water in the Gulf of Thailand. The new installation will be tied to existing wellhead platforms.

Technip is scheduled to deliver the engineering studies by May 2007 from its Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur operations and engineering centers.

:: Plan set for Wrigley subsea tieback
Nexen is proceeding with development of the Wrigley discovery in Mississippi Canyon block 506 in 1,119 m (3,670 ft) of water. The well was completed and tested at 62 MMcf/d of gas.

The plan is to tieback the subsea well via 43 km (27 mi) of 152-mm (6-in.) pipe to platform A in Mississippi Canyon block 194. First production is expected by the end of the first quarter.

Nexen has a 50% interest in Wrigley. Newfield is the operator and owns the remaining 50%.

:: MORE SUBSEA NEWS
:: Total contracts Intec for Gotcha subsea pre-FEED
Total E&P USA Inc. has awarded a contract to Intec Engineering for the subsea portion of the pre-FEED study on the Gotcha project. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of April.

Intec's workscope includes flow assurance, subsea flowlines, and evaluation of subsea development options working in collaboration with separate engineering contractors studying host and riser options.

The Gotcha field is in Alaminos Canyon block 856 in 2,210 to 2,469 m (7,250 to 8,100 ft) of water, 225 km (140 mi) east of Port Isabel, Texas.

Total is the operator of Gotcha with a 70% interest; Nexen Petroleum USA Inc. holds the remaining 30%.

:: ATP planning more tiebacks to Gomez
ATP Oil & Gas Corp. plans to tieback recently acquired properties to its Gomez floating production unit in Mississippi Canyon block 711.

The company has acquired an interest in a package of properties including a 100% working interest in the Anduin discovery in Mississippi Canyon block 755, adjacent to Gomez. The MC 755 No. 2 discovery well was drilled in 2005.

ATP intends to establish production at Anduin later this year by side tracking, completing, and tying back the discovery well to Gomez.

Following completion of Anduin, the company will earn interests in two prospects; a 50% working interest in MC 754 and a 25% working interest in MC 800 (Gladden). Gladden is scheduled to spud later this year, followed by MC 754 in 2008.

The two prospects will be tied back to Gomez, pending drilling results.

"This acquisition was a home run for ATP since it included a material expansion of reserves in the Gomez area and underscores the value of our floating production facility," says Paul Bulmahn.

"This should further enable ATP to achieve projections of our production ramp-up for 2007 and beyond," he says. "The transaction also allows third-party access to the Gomez facility and thus our production facility should operate at close to maximum capacity for a substantially longer period of time than previously expected."

"The acquisition of additional working interests in these three blocks near Gomez significantly increases our presence in this region of the Gulf of Mexico," adds Gerald Schlief, ATP senior VP. "ATP continues to acquire interests in offshore blocks that are near our existing infrastructure."

:: Noble planning Raton subsea tieback
Noble Energy is planning to develop its Raton (Mississippi Canyon block 248) natural gas discovery in the Gulf of Mexico as a subsea tieback. First production is expected in the first half of 2008.

The company has finished testing the section below the discovery in Mississippi Canyon block 295. The appraisal well, drilled to 6,374 m TMD (20,913 ft) in 1,036 m (3,400 ft) of water, encountered hydrocarbons in two sand intervals. The well has been temporarily abandoned for further technical evaluation.

Noble Energy operates Raton with a 50% working interest; Samson Offshore and Energy Partners Ltd. each hold a 25% interest.
