Early Production Systems

Overview Library

Accelerate the time to first oil and gas

Begin production early while full field development is being planned and permanent facilities are being built. Early-production systems help operators bring their new discoveries onstream fast. Schlumberger has designed and installed modular, fit-for-purpose systems worldwide for more than 30 years and to date has completed approximately 70 projects.

Early production systems and fast-track schedules can create an early cash flow for operators with only a minimum cash outlay. They also provide real-time production data for appraising reservoir performance before more-expensive long-term facilities are installed. In addition, early production systems are ideal for small reserves that would be financially risky or uneconomical to produce with a permanent production facility.

Production services

An extensive range of production services is available, based on the early production system business model selected:

  • Fast-track early production and interim plants and systems
  • Hydrocarbon liquids recovery and dewpoint control plants
  • Gas storage leaching facilities
  • CO2 and H2S removal
  • Multiphase pumping
  • Optimization of existing production facilities
  • All necessary support systems (power generation, controls, monitoring and detection, and operation camps)

Flexible business models

Schlumberger offers a variety of commercial business models for early production systems that afford customers the flexibility to maximize their return on investment:

  • Build—Own—Operate (equipment rental plus operation)
  • Build—Own—Operate—Transfer (equipment rental plus operation with the option to purchase).
