Energi, ABT team with GMC on marginal offshore fields

Offshore staff

MANCHESTER, UK – Enegi Oil and Advanced Buoy Technology have formed an agreement with GMC to expand the latter’s self-installing, buoyant offshore platform concept.

This is designed to provide a stable platform in harsh environments for housing modular drilling and production facilities, and is claimed to be a cost-effective alternative to other conventional development solutions.

Additionally, the system can provide storage for produced oil either on the sea bed or within the buoyant structure, or incorporate facilities to export produced oil and gas to nearby infrastructure.

Another claimed advantage is standardized, repeatable low-cost manufacturing techniques, making the system suited for development of small and isolated oil and gas fields. The system can also be redeployed on new fields with alternative topside modules installed, according to requirements.
