About Pivotree

Pivotree has designed a field development concept for predominantly liquids-based hydrocarbon reservoirs  (oilfields) too small to support a conventional standalone development and too remote to tie back to existing  facilities via a pipeline.

The value proposition of the Pivotree Harvester System targets companies that own geographically or  economically stranded oilfields. Pivotree’s potential to unlock small field developments significantly reduces  project risk and gives owners and operators of stranded assets a profitable path to market.

Pivotree redefines what is meant by “minimal facilities”

The entire system consists of a subsea oil production “tree” called the Pivotree that provides well and flow  control and is the structural mooring element for a “Handy-sized” floating production, storage, and offload  vessel (FPSO) called the Harvester. No other subsea elements, such as platforms, moorings, flowlines,  umbilicals, or manifolds are required.

The concept was borne out of a systematic, bottom-up examination of all functional attributes of a  hydrocarbons production system and thinking creatively about how that function could be simplified to its  minimum without compromising features or safety.

CEO Chris Merrick commented:

‘After an extended period of due diligence, we are excited to have executed the agreement with JST. Given their  long track record in the region, we believe they are an exceptional partner, and we are privileged to be working  with them.

Thailand is a core market for Pivotree. The Thai Government has made clear statements around its desire to  exploit the multiple stranded gas fields within its Territory to support the countries current energy crisis. There is  no better technology currently available in the market to help exploit these stranded assets than Pivotree. We  believe our technology combined with JST’s track record in the Thailand market, presents a strong growth opportunity for both business’

CEO of JST Group Derek Stamp, commented:

‘I am thrilled to share the exciting news of our partnership with Pivotree. Together, we are embarking on a  transformative journey. This collaboration brings forth immense opportunities for innovation and growth as we  leverage Pivotree’s expertise to shape the technology landscape in Thailand. We are excited about the potential  this partnership holds and the value it will bring to our customers. Join us as we forge ahead, delivering  exceptional solutions for our Thailand based clients.’
