ROV Super Clean Tool
Cleaning of the manifold hub was critical for the Knock-On Cap project (see associated project description). Seahorse Energy engineered, manufactured and delivered an ROV tool that did a phenomenal job of cleaning the manifold hub.
The Tool Trap is designed to provide a non-pressure containing barrier at the seabed during wireline operations through a slotted flapper valve design. It can be manually opened and closed. The slot allows the wireline to pass through it, but not the tool. In this way, the Tool Trap will stop the tool from passing through it on the way in the hole. The tool can then be “zeroed”, the Tool Trap opened, and the wireline tool can pass through. After passing through, the Tool Trap can be closed. With an internal ID of 7” and a rating of 10,000 psi, the design of the tool trap is to fit into existing systems via flanking 9”, 10M API flanges. Start to finish, delivery of the Tool Trap was 6 months.
Seahorse Energy has engineered, manufactured, welded and tested subsea lubricator joints. These joints had a pressure rating of 10,000 psi and an internal diameter of 8″, utilizing 9″ 10M flanged end connections.
ROV panels are a critical aspect of any intervention. They are the interface between the subsea equipment and the ROV, providing a means of functioning valves, pressure testing, establishing hydraulic access, and more. Seahorse Energy designs, manufactures, plumbs and tests all of the ROV panels for our intervention equipment.
Seahorse Energy has engineered Bore Selectors for use in subsea trees. This is of particular importance with the older generation “dual bore” trees. The purpose of the bore selector is to enable entry into either the production bore or the annulus bore of a subsea tree with a single riser string (vs. a “dual string”). By sliding a funnel within the bore selector, the bore selector can guide an intervention or completion tool into either bore.
