A REVIEW OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SWOPS SUBSEA PRODUCTION SYSTEM

This paper reviews the SWOPS production system, explaining the production sequence and describing the assemblies that make up the subsea completion. Detailed information is provided on the unique non-orientating, high-angle quick-release production riser connection that uses no guidelines and its development with extensive prototype testing. Other areas highlighted are the quick response hydraulic control system, two-tree diverless production using remotely operated vehicles (ROV) intervention and extensive ROV interfacing.
