Title (EN) COLD FLOW CENTER AND CENTERS
(FR) CENTRE ET CENTRES À FLUX FROID
Abstract:
(EN) A subsea production system, comprising a plurality of wells located on a sea floor, the wells producing a fluid comprising hydrocarbons; a cold flow center on the sea floor, the cold flow center fluidly connected to the plurality of wells; and a production facility on land or on a floating structure, the production facility fluidly connected to the cold flow center; wherein the cold flow center lowers a temperature of the fluid and produces a slurry of the fluid and suspended solids for transportation to the production facility.
(FR) La présente invention a pour objet un système de production sous-marin, comprenant une pluralité de puits situés sur un fond marin, les puits produisant un fluide comprenant des hydrocarbures ; un centre à flux froid sur le fond marin, le centre à flux froid étant relié de manière fluidique à la pluralité de puits ; et une installation de production sur terre ou sur une structure flottante, l'installation de production étant reliée de manière fluidique au centre à flux froid ; le centre à flux froid abaissant une température du fluide et produisant une boue du fluide et des matières solides en suspension pour le transport jusqu'à l'installation de production.
