Ceiba Field Framo Subsea Multiphase Pumps
Purpose of the Pump:
provides pressure boost to assist with displacement
of well fluids (oil, water & gas) to the FPSO.
maximum pressure differential is 45 bar, maximum
volume throughput for a Phase II skid is 38,000 bfpd.

Ceiba Field Flowline Gas Lift
C-19 Gas Inj
C-22 Gas Inj
Ceiba Flowline Gas Lift
- provides 22 mmcfg/d of gas lift at 4 clusters.
- provides injection of gas for future use.
- assists flow when Framo MPP fails.
- reduced head gives Framo MPPs less wear.
- reduced suction pressure means more reserves.

Ceiba Field Subsea Tree Installation on Wire
Subsea tree resting on deck
of intervention vessel
Subsea tree as it is lowered via crane into the sea
less time spent means $3 million savings
eliminates the requirement to pull and rerun
the marine riser, an inherently risky operation
Lowering of the subsea tree on wire instead of
running on drillpipe accomplishes:

Okume Complex, Twin Mini-Tension Leg Platforms (TLP)
Tension Leg Platforms (Oveng, Okume) aboard dry tow vessel arrive in Equatorial Guinea.
TLP floats under tension while fastened to the seafloor via steel tendons.
smaller footprint, lighter weight, faster construction time means less cost.
riser tensioning system allows for dry tree installation, reduced cost versus subsea.
tender assist drilling rig versus semisubmersible means less cost.

Okume Complex SMART Well Design
Oil Producing
Zone A
Oil Producing
Zone B
SMART Well Design:
provides isolation between multiple pay zones
allows individual zone testing
allows either zone to be isolated
allows downhole choking on both zones
Downhole manipulation is accomplished
via hydraulics through control lines
located at the wellhead.
Hess has successfully manipulated a
downhole control valve via ROV on
Ceiba subsea well C-33.

at Okume
water injection (125 kbd) helps to sustain reservoir pressure
and insure maximum reserve recovery.
a water-alternating-gas project will start soon with the
objective of increasing sweep efficiency and increasing the
utilization of associated gas production.
gas compression is used to provide gas lift gas to individual
producing wells including those on and both TLPs.

water injection (120 kbd) helps to sustain reservoir pressure
