Oil Upstream

SOFRESID ENGINEERING studies, designs and addresses ambitious challenges for production and storage facilities, and for transport systems in the petroleum upstream sector, involving both creation and modification.

Combining the latest technological developments in the sector with specific client requirements and the regulatory aspects, we defend the technical and economic interests of your offshore and onshore projects.

EXPLORATION: ONSHORE PRODUCTION

In this field, SOFRESID ENGINEERING works with oil and oil services & supply companies on developing their production units:

  • Well heads
  • Oil/gas treatment units
  • Gas compression
  • Treatment of production and injection water, pumps
  • Injection skids
  • Utilities: electricity generation, air/nitrogen generation, upstream water treatment, etc.
  • Control-command / power network management systems
  • Technical buildings (control-command, electricity, etc.) or living quarters
  • Integration of renewable energy

 

EXPLORATION: OFFSHORE PRODUCTION

In this field, SOFRESID ENGINEERING works with oil and oil services & supply companies on developing their production units:

  • Platforms with well heads
  • Production platforms
  • Jackets, decks, catwalks
  • Gas compression
  • Treatment of production and injection water, pumps
  • Injection skids
  • Utilities: electricity generation, air/nitrogen generation, upstream water treatment, etc.
  • Control-command / power network management systems
  • Technical buildings (control-command, electricity, etc.) or living quarters
  • Integration of renewable energy
  • Floating production units

 

SERVICE LIFE EXTENSION: MODIFICATION

SOFRESID ENGINEERING supports its clients throughout the operational phase of their installations, through to dismantling:

  • Modification/debottlenecking of petroleum upstream installations
  • Extending the service life of installations (recertification, inspection plan, etc.)
  • Installation reconversion
  • Integration of renewable energy
  • Installation dismantling

 

TRANSPORTATION AND STORAGE

In this field, SOFRESID ENGINEERING works with oil and oil services & supply companies on developing means of transport and storage for petroleum products before processing:

  • Crude and gas storage terminals
  • Floating production / storage units (FPSO, FLNG, FSO, FSRU, etc.)
  • Loading/offloading infrastructures
  • Transport networks via onshore and offshore pipelines
  • Concentrated structures: pumping stations, compression stations, isolation stations

 

SUBSEA

In the framework of developing offshore oil and gas fields from shallow to great depth, SOFRESID ENGINEERING works on the design of various subsea structures and transport and installation studies.

Our challenge: designing subsea structures with managed CAPEX/OPEX:

  • To resist environmental, geotechnical and operational conditions for 25 years
  • To be installed optimally and in complete safety using installation vessels
  • To be operated by subsea robot

We work on all the following products:

  • System F: Production and injection lines (Flowline), connections via spools and jumpers, manifolds
  • System R: Vertical production and injection lines (Riser) held taut by buoy and connected to the FPSO via a flexible line
  • System O: Oil Offloading Lines, anchoring and buoy
  • System G: Gas export line, PLEM, SIV
  • System U: Umbilicals, control cables
  • System M: Météocean anchoring for FPSO, PSV/surfers and buoy
  • All systems for helping with installation and transportation

Our teams are expert in:

  • The regulatory codes in the field (API / AISC / DNV NORSOK / EUROCODE / ISO 19901 / ASME)
  • The interpretation of geotechnical data
  • Specific studies such as dynamic analyses (with Orcaflex), transportation analyses (with Moses), and analyses of spools and jumpers (with CAESAR)

 

A GLOBAL APPROACH FOR THE GOOD OF YOUR PROJECTS
