TechnipFMC and Halliburton have received an OTC Spotlight on New Technology Award® (SONT) for their OdasseaTM Subsea Fiber Optic Solution, a downhole fibre optic sensing system.

ExxonMobil selected the solution for its Payara development project in Guyana. The award followed completion of front-end engineering and design studies and qualifications.

“We are excited to win OTC’s Spotlight Award and deploy Odassea in Payara, the industry’s largest subsea fibre optic sensing project,” said Trey Clark, vice president of Halliburton Wireline and Perforating. “By collaborating with TechnipFMC, we combine our sensing and subsea expertise to enhance reservoir insight and to lower the total cost of ownership for our customers.”

The Odassea service integrates hardware and digital systems to strengthen capabilities in subsea reservoir monitoring and production optimisation. Halliburton provides the fibre optic sensing technology and analysis for reservoir diagnostics. TechnipFMC provides the optical connectivity from the topside to the completions. Through this collaboration, operators can accelerate full field subsea fibre optic sensing, design, and execution.

The Payara development, located 200 km offshore Guyana in 1800 m water depth, is the third development within the Stabroek block with current discovered recoverable resources estimated at approximately 9 billion oil-equivalent barrels .

“To win the SONT award and to help our client enable an enhanced level of reservoir understanding are great achievements,” said Christina Johansen, senior vice president of TechnipFMC Subsea Product Management. “Solutions such as Odassea transform our clients’ project economics and demonstrate how we are continuously driving change in the industry.”

TechnipFMC and Halliburton are delivering Odassea solutions to multiple other subsea projects at all stages from conceptual design to execution.
