Quick Guide: How to find Subsea Projects and Fields Information

The Subsea Oil and Gas Directory is much more than a list of upstream focused businesses and companies. It also contain useful information on products, pipelines, drilling rigs and subsea projects and oil and gas offshore field developments.

Subsea Oil and Gas Projects

The subsea oil and gas sector at sea plays a key role in the global supply of fossil fuels. The sector has developed dramatically since its inception, with new technology increasing oil recovery and enabling oil exploration in remote and challenging areas.

Subsea is also about renewable and you can learn more about offshore wind projects like Utsira Nord, Sørlige Nordsjø II, Trollvind and ScotWind at Offshore Wind Design.

Offshore Field Developments

Search for offshore developments in our database and you will find useful information such as the field name and operator, the area and country, the water depth, the start and first oil years etc. Also, the field layout is described with number of wells and the subsea infrastructure.

The subsea equipment and services offered by the listed companies cover the entire subsea production systems lifecycle. From early-stage studies and detailed design to modifications, life-extending projects, re-modeling, connections, maintenance, process improvements and offshore settlement.

Subsea Production Systems

Subsea oil and gas field developments is complicated and it takes years from the initial successful geophysical and seismic surveys to first oil. Exploration drilling and the reservoir can be defined and the volume of oil and gas or condensate can be estimated. The Oil and Gas Fields layout can now be developed, including the design of the subsea production systems, pipelines routing and the topside oil production facilities and installations. After all the wells have been drilled and the subsea production systems are installed, the oil production projects can finally begin.

List of Top 10 Subsea Projects and Offshore Field Developments

Below is a list of top 10 subsea projects in the subsea projects database:

  • Lobito Tomboco by Cabinda Gulf Oil Company
    The Lombito Tomboca Development will consist of three subsea centers tied back to the Benguela belize (BB) compliant Tower. Two centers in the Lobito reservoir and a third in the Tomboco reservoir. The Lobito and Tomboco discoveries are located in 1200 to 2000 feet of water in Block 14 offshore Cabinda in Angola. Lobito Tomboco, West ...
  • Kristin Deepwater by Equinor
    Four subsea templates installed on Kristin will be tied back to a floating production platform with a daily production capacity of 126,000 barrels of condensate and just over 18 million cubic metres of rich gas. The reservoir lies almost 5,000 metres beneath the seabed, and is due to be drained through 12 subsea wells. The ...
  • Canyon Express by Total
    Canyon Express is a unique development not only for its depth and technical merits, but for the way three producers from three fields have come together to produce fields that would otherwise have been too marginal to be viable. The project connects to three separate deep water gas fields in the Mississippi Canyon and Desoto ...
  • Sigyn Gas by Esso
    Sigyn gas field is located in block 16/7 in the Norwegian North Sea. The discovery well is 12km south-east of the Sleipner A platform. Sigyn field was discovered in 1982. Esso Norway operates the field, with a 40% interest. Statoil holds a 50% interest, while Norsk Hydro holds the 10%. In 2001, Statoil signed NOK375 ...
  • Hoover Diana by ExxonMobil
    The $1.2-billion project to codevelop these two fields will produce peak rates of 100,000 bopd and 325 MMcfd gas. ExxonMobil (66.7%) is the operator; BP Amoco holds the remaining 33.3%. The development utilizes a Deep Draft Caisson Vessel (DDCV) located over Hoover. The 83-story-tall DDCV floats vertically and is nearly "half a football field in diameter," ...
  • Vilje by Equinor
    1 August 2008, the first oil flowed from the Vilje field to the Alvheim floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). The Vilje field is located in the northern part of the North Sea, north of the Heimdal field. Equinor is the operator of the field, with a 28.85 percent interest. Vilje is the first Equinor-operated field ...
  • Shtokman Gas Condensate Deposit Barents Sea by Sevmorneftegas
    An appraisal drilling programme was carried out between 1990 and 1995, and following this, a production sharing system was signed in 2000 by the Russian government. The licensee is Sevmorneftegaz, which is owned by the companies Rosneft (state) and Gazprom (state/private). In late 2004 and early 2005, preliminary agreements were signed with ChevronTexaco, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, ...
  • Manatee by Shell
    Manatee is expected to recover in excess of 12 million barrels of oil equivalent, with peak production rates potentially reaching up to 25,000 barrels of oil per day. Production began during the third quarter of 2002, with peak production rates reaching up to 25,000 barrels of oil per day. Manatee will be the fourth subsea ...
  • Triton by Amerada Hess
    The three Triton fields lie in the North Sea, 190km east of Aberdeen. They are being developed using an FPSO, located approximately 20km away from the Bittern field and 12km from the Guillemot West field, via subsea pipelines. Triton, North Sea, Amerada Hess, Europe(North),
  • Fram by Equinor
    The Fram oil finds in the North Sea comprise the Fram West and Fram East fields. The fields are located about 20 kilometers north of the Troll field at a depth of approximately 350 meters. Both field developments consist of subsea installations connected via pipelines to the Troll C platform. The well streams from the fields are ...
