Core (Oil and Gas) Ltd used its extensive global experience in brownfield and mature assets to enhance uptime, meet regulatory requirements and improve production rates by providing control system changes to mitigate against the effect of issues with slugging, compressor performance, gas lift, water injection and produced water quality.
Core has had an association with the particular field since providing start up and initial production stability expertise from the first production well onto the FPSO. As the production profile has changed Core has revisited the facility on a number of occasions to provide further optimisation services and controls improvements.
After some years of reliable operation of the produced water disposal system, an increase in process disturbance incidents and subsequent trips were being experienced. Produced water rates had been increasing to the point where they were exceeding the produced water injection system.
