APTARA™ LIGHTWEIGHT COMPACT TREE

The Aptara™ lightweight compact tree has an innovative new flowpath that reduces the number of valves for same functionality whilst complying with API 17D 2nd edition. It uses unique patented innovative tree caps, allowing it to be configured to suit changing requirements, reducing cost, and increasing value over the life of your field.

These tree caps eliminate the need for independent HIPPS and boosting modules and connections, reducing your costs further. At 50% lighter, with a considerably smaller footprint, this TOTEX-lite solution can reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) of your subsea well system by up to 50% over the life of your field.

Boosting Tree Cap

The Aptara™ modular compact manifold addresses the industry's need for modular, pre-engineered manifolds that use off-the-shelf components, reducing cycle time cost and footprint. We have achieved a level of standardization that limits the engineering to the manifold header, structural steel, and foundation, resulting in faster delivery with reduced risks and costs. In fact, it reuses Aptara™ lightweight compact tree valves to offer higher integrity sealing solution. It has been designed for easy installation: the manifold and mudmat can be installed with a single lift using smaller, lower-cost vessels. For the most common configuration, the manifold will be make-to-order with zero product engineering and delivered in 10 months from the award of a contract.

The Aptara™ SFX wellhead solution is focused on improved fatigue resistance to maximize life-of-field options for the operator. The result of our life-of-field approach to design translates into real benefits, enabling production enhancement through well intervention activities even in late life and ensuring longevity of field operations, all with a lower risk profile than traditional wellhead systems. The Aptara™ SFX wellhead solution enables you to plan your well activities reliably and with higher confidence for years to come.

The Aptara™ modular compact pump (MCP) is the is the world's first subsea multi-phase pump without a barrier fluid system, designed to significantly reduce topside footprint and system cost. It is a completely integrated, all-electric boosting system. The standard pre-qualified 1 MW building blocks enable it to be configured to different field requirements quickly and easily. The stages are controlled individually by local subsea Variable Speed Drives that allow the pump to react and adapt dynamically to changes in wellstream conditions. This ensures high inherent reliability, as high-risk items such as mechanical seals are not needed. It also effectively eliminates the need to re-bundle the hydraulics during the life of field.

The Aptara™ composite risers were developed to serve the deepwater and ultra-deepwater applications in water depths to 3,000 meters, cost-effectively. The new composite component is a pressure armor layer, made up of carbon-fiber reinforced thermoplastic tape, driving weight down by 30% over conventional flexible pipe without affecting bending radius or compressive load capability. It's TOTEX-lite benefits involve the ability to use free-hanging catenary configuration in up to 3,000 m water depth — eliminating the need for buoyancy elements, reducing the length of risers and making for simpler and more economic installation. An additional advantage is a reduced CO2 and H2S permeated gas flow rate through the assembly, giving further operational and cost benefits.

FLX360 MULTI-QUICK CONNECTION SYSTEM

The Aptara™ FLX360 is an innovative Multi-Quick Connect (MQC) system that enables fast and reliable connections between all elements of the subsea distribution system. It uses a patented locking mechanism that leaves only one moving part of the design on the seabed. Its unique life-of-filed design also allows maintenance in situ with no need for disconnection.

HCCS-L LIGHTWEIGHT HORIZONTAL CLAMP CONNECTION SYSTEM

Our Aptara™ HCCS-L is a proven horizontal connector suitable for rigid pipes, flexible pipes, subsea Pig Launchers and Receivers, piping loops and control/valve modules, as well as umbilical termination with use of multi-bore hub technology. The HCCS-L range has been designed to be lighter, smaller and and reduces the connection time by over 30%.

Loading the future of Subsea.

A New Way
Of Doing Business

The industry has made significant progress in reducing breakeven costs for subsea developments. We believe there's more to do.

From concept to commissioning, from the reservoir to topsides, across the life of the field — our BHGE portfolio and partnerships influence 80% of subsea project development costs and value drivers.

Together, we can lower the economic development point of subsea projects by an average of 30% and help unlock more than 16 billion barrels in reserves.

Lower costs, improved productivity, and increase yield.

APTARA™ TOTEX-LITE SUBSEA SYSTEM

02

APTARA™ TOTEX-LITE SUBSEA SYSTEM

Designed for the life of field. Our Aptara™ TOTEX-lite subsea system has been born from our life-of-field approach.

This gives subsea operators more flexibility as decisions about late-life infrastructure do not need to be made at commissioning and is flexible enough to evolve over the life of your field. We have re-engineered the subsea system to make installation, production, and intervention simpler and more efficient — dramatically lowering the total cost of ownership.

The individual products in the Aptara™ family of TOTEX-lite subsea system are up to 50% lighter, have shorter lead times, and are designed to be flexible enough to evolve to suit the changing needs over the life of your field.
