Subsea Pumping Technology

Reduce or eliminate your topside footprint by moving chemical storage and injection systems subsea, reducing the cost and complexity of conventional umbilicals.

This advanced technology was selected based on its innovative technology, broad appeal to the industry, and significant impact with benefits beyond existing technologies.

With SPT, operators can reduce or completely eliminate their topside footprint by moving chemical storage and injection capabilities subsea, offering alternate value-added contributions to subsea tieback architectures and other operational applications where chemicals or hydraulics are required for operational integrity management or flow assurance purposes on subsea production systems.

Making Subsea Factories a Reality

Oceaneering’s Subsea Pumping Technology (SPT), a 2019 OTC Spotlight on New Technology® Award Winner, offers value-added contributions to tieback architectures and applications where chemicals are required for operational integrity management or flow assurance purposes.

The SPT system reduces or eliminates the storage, pumping, and delivery systems that typically occupy valuable topside real estate and the interface resources associated with topside chemical storage, bunkering, and handling. Multiple efficiencies can be realized by moving the equipment to the seabed and positioning them locally to the points of demand. Tanks of chemical product are replenished via tank exchange or filling from support vessel down lines.

Additionally, the local storage and injection concept is a strong enabler for longer subsea tiebacks, where chemical delivery and distribution to the fields via long and or multiple umbilical sections is challenging and costly.

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
