GE Oil & Gas has launched the new VetcoGray S-Series SVXT subsea tree at the Offshore Europe Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition, being held from 8-11 September 2009 in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The new VetcoGray S-Series SVXT subsea tree merges horizontal and vertical tree technology, reducing weight by 20%, decreasing height, and also delivering essential functionality in a pre-engineered, pre-configured 'modular' way. Low-cost installation of the new SVXT is achieved through a design that enables deployment using standard offshore jack-up drilling rigs without the need for major modifications.

New SVXT design features include smaller tree and fisher-friendly wellhead protection structures, as well as an innovative barrier approach that removes the need for a separate tree cap. The SVXT comes with GE’s award-winning SemStar5-powered ModPod as standard control system, along with service and analysis packages, including flow-assurance, riser analysis and other valuable elements.

GE Oil & Gas offers a full range of integrated subsea solutions, including trees, controls, manifolds, connection systems, subsea power and processing. All of these systems are designed to provide competitive lead times, benchmark reliability and lowest installed cost. With 20 years of operating experience in harsh environments, GE’s VetcoGray shallow-water tree systems are an established industry benchmark.
