• Despite a modest increase in offshore E&P activity, many development prospects remain largely unattractive to the major industry players. Marginal fields are often ignored by bigger operators due simply to some discoveries' limited scope, yet that very same field could be, for a smaller and more agile operator, a chance to quickly implement an effective solution on a project with three or four producing wells.

    In a collaboration with Aquaterra Energy, we provided XLC-S connectors for Aquaterra's Sea Swift concept, a modular system that unites the advantages of a platform with the rig-run benefits of a subsea development. Sea Swift was a perfect solution for DeNovo Energy, an operator in the Gulf of Paria offshore the west coast of Trinidad, and their three-well development campaign in the Iguana Field. Our XLC-S connectors provided the improved structural integrity and fatigue performance necessary for the conductor-supported platform.
