Apache North Sea uses EnergySys Production Allocation cloud system

Friday, October 5, 2012

Oil and gas operator Apache has started using the Energysys cloud based system for managing production data, for its Forties and Bacchus fields.

The Bacchus field is a subsea tieback to the Forties Alpha platform. It has 2 subsea wells, a subsea production manifold, a 6.7km pipeline bundle, a subsea isolation valve (SSIV) manifold and riser.

The Bacchus fluids are metered on the platform using a multiphase flowmeter or by the platform test separator, before being commingled with the production from the Forties Alpha wells.

However the Bacchus field comes under a different tax regime from the Forties field and has different partner interests.

"The production reporting software we were using was obsolete and could not be readily modified for the Bacchus field requirements," says Ross Littlewood, Production Engineering Team Lead for Apache.

"A study was conducted to identify the best production reporting software available on the market. EnergySys was identified as being the most appropriate as it is rapid to deploy, user friendly and cost effective."

"It also had the flexibility to incorporate any future field developments with minimal rework."
