Cellula Robotics Ltd. (Cellula) had been awarded a contract by Blue Ocean Technologies LLC. (Blue Ocean) to design and manufacture subsea valve packs for the Blue Ocean Riserless Intervention System (BORIS). The valve packs will operate in water depths down to 3000 meters to control critical functions of the BORIS. The project will be designed to the rigorous requirements of ISO 13628-6 and other applicable industry standards.
For this project, Cellula is upgrading their manifold testing facility with a high pressure, water based control fluids, flushing station that can clean to NAS 1634 Class 6. The new flushing station will reduce the time taken during integration to reach the required cleanliness standard.
The project is due to start factory acceptance testing for the first system in May 2015 with subsequent units delivered in June 2015.
Blue Ocean Technologies LLC., which is based in Conroe, Texas, was established in 2008 and became an early player in Riserless Subsea Intervention. The company founders have extensive experience in the field of riserless intervention and the broader organization has extensive knowledge and design experience in subsea and well intervention with a proven riserless intervention track record in water depths in excess of 8,200 feet. In addition, the Blue Ocean team has field-proven capabilities to perform subsea well infrastructure diagnostics, interventions, work overs, remediation, well plugging and abandonment (P&A).
