Field Planning, Feasibility and Concept Studies

Improving the productivity of new and existing oil and gas fields has never been more important. Aker Solutions finds ways to increase value at every stage of an oilfield’s lifecycle.

Mature areas, deep water, remote locations, arctic frontiers, shallow reservoirs, high pressure and temperature, high CO2 content and marginal sizes: all fields are unique and require competence, experience and technology for successful development. Aker Solutions provides field planning, feasibility and concept studies for all field types at all stages. We work closely together with our clients to increase value at every stage of the field lifecycle.

Reliable and Consistent

Our feasibility and concept studies focus on the specific building blocks and detail these to the required level. We prove a project’s feasibility by uncovering potential technology gaps and specify fabrication and installation requirements. Building on our competence, experience and continuously updated in-house databases, we help our clients to minimize commercial uncertainty and provide a reliable basis for decision making with consistency and realism in cost, schedule and design.

We provide detailed consultancy services within flow assurance, mooring system analysis, riser analysis, high-voltage power transfer analysis, risk analysis, value improvement, layout reviews, cost and weight estimation and technology readiness evaluations.

We minimize HSE risk by integrating “HSE in design” in the field development and concept selection process. By ensuring that all building blocks are based on recent project experience and updated technology status, we reduce operational risk to a minimum.
