The world's first

topside-less subsea multiphase boosting system

FASTsubsea X – A Powerful, Yet Simple Tool to Increase Oil Recovery

The standardized Hydromag™ Drive Unit from FSubsea is developed in partnership with Aker BP, ConocoPhillips, Equinor, Lundin, NOV, OMV and Voith Turbo.

It combines the world’s most powerful magnetic coupling with a proven Hydrodynamic Variable Speed “Torque” Converter.

The high performance Multiphase Pump Hydraulics are from Aker Solutions, based on the qualified MultiBooster™ , in partnership with Aker Energy, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Equinor, Chevron, Shell and Total.

Hydromag™ integrated in Pump Unit

  • Magnetic coupling with hydrodynamic variable speed
  • “Wireless” transfer of shaft loads from motor to pump
  • Hermetic separation between pump and motor

Simplified Pump System Solution

  • Minimize topside modification work: no VSD or B-F system
  • Operate 2 or more pumps with single power/cable system
  • Fewer fragile components – higher reliability

This is FASTsubsea

FASTsubsea is a joint venture between Aker Solutions and Fsubsea to develop the world’s first topside-less subsea multiphase boosting system called FASTsubsea X. FASTsubsea X is a powerful yet simple pump to increase oil recovery for brownfields, tie-backs and marginal or distributed fields. The pump can reduce capex by up to 50% as it enables subsea boosting at fields where there is no available topside space. The system provides increased reliability and gets more out of existing wells which reduces CO2 emissions per barrel.







The most powerful and yet simplest tool to increase oil recovery available for brownfields, tie-backs and marginal or distributed fields. Save more than 50% of CAPEX – and improve reliability
