This is a HPHT subsea tree used at Chevron’s Alder Field in the North Sea. It is called a vertical monobore tree. The system allows the Alder team to safely control production from the high pressure and high temperature Alder reservoir lies 14500 feet below seabed and manage any fluids injected into the well using an umbilical.
