The presentation will open with a short overview of Technip Subsea activities, including services, products, marine assets and manufacturing facilities and the vertical associated integration model including Research and Development, Design, Project Management, manufacturing/fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning. This model allows Technip to deliver full EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation) projects supported by robust technical product definition and R&D. This will be followed by a short presentation of the activities of Technip Singapore as a subset of the overall Technip activities.

The presentation will primarily focus on the qualification of active heating pipeline products for subsea application, including the project implementation of these products in a number of subsea projects. As oil and gas developments move into deeper and deeper waters, reservoir conditions continue to challenge the flow assurance over the life of field using traditional “passive” insulation pipeline products. This has led to the development of a number of subsea processing methods of intervention including subsea multiphase pumping, separation and compression. A key tool in the subsea processing toolkit is active heating of a pipeline which can be used to add thermal energy to the production fluid. Active heating can be implemented intermittently or continuously over the life of field to mitigate against hydrate or wax formation or simply to reduce the density of the production fluids. Technip has developed reeled rigid pipeline product referred to as Electrically Trace Heated Pipe in Pipe (ETH PiP) and a flexible pipe product referred to as Integrated Production Bundle (IPB). These products have been implemented in field developments following many years of Research and product development. The presentation will provide details of the product qualification process, the benefits of active heating to a subsea development, and a description of the real field applications and the benefits of active heating to the productivity of those fields. Finally, the presentation will describe a Joint Industry Project currently being managed by Technip which will demonstrate the ability of an actively heated pipeline to melt a fully form hydrate plug in a pipeline.
