Method and apparatus for remotely controlling subsea template production systems having a plurality of satellite wells and a plurality of subsea trees on the well templates uses a significantly reduced number of electrical and hydraulic lines between a surface control unit and a riser base on the seafloor. An electrohydraulic control module on the riser base receives electrical control signals and provides hydraulic output signals to operate the riser base. Electrohydraulic control modules on the templates receive electrical control signals and provide hydraulic output signals to control operation of the trees on the templates. The satellite wells are each controlled by a single hydraulic signal line connected between the surface control unit and a matrix switching control module at the satellite well. All of the electrohydraulic modules are replaceable using surface operated running tools.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
