Abstract

This paper describes the architecture of the Lucius Subsea Production System and the drivers behind it. Novel technologies are detailed including suction pile mounted Pipeline End Manifolds (PLEMs) and chemical injection backpressure regulator valves. Innovative installation techniques and highlights are described, including the use of laser metrology and a "strong back" system for rigid jumpers. Difficulties and lessons learned are also shared.
