Energy services company Proserv has secured a contract worth over $5.5million with Repsol to upgrade and build new subsea production control equipment for the Yme field redevelopment in the Norwegian North Sea.

As part of the workscope, Proserv will engineer, manufacture and supply all associated topside and subsea equipment. The refurbishment and servicing of the subsea control modules and the manufacturing of the subsea electronics modules and master control station will be delivered by the company’s subsea controls experts in Trondheim and Stavanger, Norway. Each control module will include Proserv’s awardwinning Artemis 2G (A2G) subsea electronics modules, which are designed to be compatible with existing infrastructure to avoid costly system replacements and protect against obsolescence.

Tore Erntsen, vice president for subsea controls at Proserv, said: “In these austere times, it is fundamental to change the way we act and respond to a challenge. Just as there’s never been a greater need for collaboration, we must think smarter about technology and how we can use what already exists in different ways together.

“The revitalisation of the Yme field, with Repsol bringing forward a revised plan for development and operation, is a prime example of how Proserv’s approach can add value by improving existing equipment reliability and maximising field life.”
