SEA provides teams and specialist support to ensure project execution and delivery as part of independent EPCM or integrated with the client’s existing team, acting directly for and on behalf of the client.
SEA’s team provides expertise across all aspects of project delivery, from project controls, cost management, package management, drafting and scheduling through to discipline expertise and subject matter experts.
SEA provides the seamless link that ensures the project’s engineering requirements are robust, and are reflected in the quality of the delivered product.
SEA’s automated approach to engineering allows us to build and assess thousands of network model iterations to optimise concept field design. Our specialised tooling allows us to break complex network systems into manageable components to model and characterise representative sections of the system.
SEA perform steady state and transient flow assurance assessments for network models including the wellbores, jumpers, flowlines and risers. Compatible with third party applications such as Olga & Ledaflow, we capture the behaviour of multiphase and complex fluids including carbon dioxide and hydrogen streams. Our automated approach allows us to assess many iterations of alternate field configurations to optimise the flow assurance performance of the system in concept phase.
Reservoir integration allows the effect of alternate flowline options to be captured on the production through the system. Our reservoir integration allows for the tailored generation of production profiles for various flowline options, allowing system optimisation and identification of preferred options faster than traditionally possible.
Clients across the globe deploy SEA and the ICE Platform to develop their projects or enhance their delivery, ranging from:
Using specialist knowledge and experience to detail and define complex analysis together with efficient and effective data structure and management allows SEA to build, solve and optimise detailed and bespoke analyses then link the outcome from one model to the input of the next.
This enables SEA to delivery complex system analysis from subsea and pipeline networks to floating systems, from flow assurance and mechanical design through to production optimisation.
SEA is a trusted partner for many clients across all project phases for providing expert input into risk assessments and improving understanding of overall system reliability. SEA’s ongoing engagement across multiple clients, projects and regions provides a deep well of experience which ensures a flow of reliable, up-to-date guidance is available to clients.
By remaining active across the operate, construction and design phases, SEA closes the integrity feedback loop to ensure all projects benefit from learnings across all phases.
SEA support multiple clients in the design and construction phases with both qualitative assessments and quantitative analysis. Through the project phase SEA provides support with SME participation and/or facilitation of risk workshops (HAZID, HAZOP, constructability, etc).
SEA’s powerful workflow approach to engineering using the ICE platform allows detailed probabilistic assessments (including QRA and SRAs) to be conducted with large quantities of data, enabling an advanced understanding of asset reliability.
SEA has extensive experience supporting clients through the operations phase, including RAM, RBI, IMMR risk response and life extension studies. Our capabilities range from providing expert input and workshop facilitation, to driving the entire process including stakeholder pre-engagement, terms of reference, workshop, action close-out, final sign off and implementation.
Early project phases, concept and FEED, benefit greatly from the insight that early detailed discipline assessment provides. We support our clients all project phases through automated engineering analysis with intelligent visualisations, turning data into informed decisions. SEA’s philosophy of automation coupled with the data management provided by the ICE Platform enables system optimisation across all disciplines rather than discrete discipline assessment done in isolation.
Our integrated field development approach links the reservoir to the point of sale. It provides the power of detailed transient flow assurance models, detailed corrosion models, finite element models to be linked and optimised in unison, such that the best multi-discipline outcome for each development option can be determined. Automation and distributed computing enable this to be done rapidly and at a scale unprecedented in early project phases. The robust option comparison and detailed supporting information improves project decision quality, enabling key assurance reviews and gates are met with positive outcomes in less time.
