Production optimisation specialist Enpro Subsea has moved into a new UK headquarters as its ambitious growth plans continue at pace.

The number of personnel at its facility in Westhill, Aberdeenshire has expanded to over 40 in recent months to support an 100% increase in international projects for its range of enhanced production solutions during the past year.

The business, which also has a presence in Houston and Ghana, has seen its patented Flow Access Modules (FAM) technology selected by major and independent operators with over 50 systems now adopted globally.

FAM reduces cost and enables maximised ultimate recovery from subsea wells by providing a differentiated subsea field development solution. It creates an enhanced production ‘USB port’ within the jumper envelope, enabling operators to use standard subsea trees and manifolds while enabling the future integration of enhanced production solutions, such as metering, flow assurance, data acquisition and hydraulic intervention.

In addition to FAM success, the company’s Flow Intervention Services (FIS) technology has been deployed on multi-well hydraulic intervention campaigns in West Africa and will be delivering its 15-ksi deepwater FIS in early 2019 with the support of an R&D funding grant from Scottish Enterprise. The company has also been contracted for continued support in the decommissioning of gravity base structures (GBS) in the North Sea.

The firm’s new 5,000 square foot office at Arnhall Business Park, Westhill, has double the space of its previous site, including meeting rooms, breakout areas and client offices.

Earlier this year, Enpro Subsea secured a significant inward investment from EV Private Equity, as part of its investment in fast-growing North Sea businesses.

Enpro Subsea managing director, Ian Donald, says, “Our team aims to cost effectively maximise recovery from subsea wells. The new office move confirms our commitment to continued growth and excellent facilities for both our clients and our employees. We have had a successful period and a strong global pipeline of orders for our FAM, FIS and decommissioning technologies.”
