Conductor Supported Platform (CSP)
The FPSO will have control and monitoring oversight of the platform through SCADA telemetry enabled by single model dual fibre optic cores. Subsea Flowlines, Umbilicals and Risers (SURF) connect the satellite platform to the FPSO which run cross-field and spans up to 23km.
The CSP is a minimum facilities platform that uses drilling conductors to support the topside structure and act as a conduit for well construction. The construction was completed locally in Nigeria. The platform is designed to be modular and allows the early delivery of the subsea structures and drilling module, enabling drilling to commence while the topside module remains under construction. We leveraged this technology to fast-track the drilling of the development wells at Anyala field.

Having completed 3 development wells, a heavy lift of the CSP Production Deck Module (PDM) was successfully undertaken by construction barge – Swiber Resolute in August 2020. Flowline hook up of the 3 development wells was executed, hookup of piping to preinstalled rigid and flexible risers for export to FPSO was completed in September 2020. Pre-commissioning and commissioning activities were safely executed. The Anyala West CSP is currently in operation and yields production to FPSO Abigail-Joseph through 7 wells.
