Going the Distance: Subsea Electrical and Production Systems


Going the Distance: Subsea Electrical and Production Systems

Wednesday, 8 May
Session Chairperson
Donald Underwood, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Dril-Quip Inc
Stuart Scott, Petroleum Etc
Capital constraints are driving new and innovative development approaches for offshore and deepwater. Maximizing use of existing offshore infrastructure has been found to be valuable for lowering costs. This has shifted even multi-well developments subsea driving stepping-out distances to new levels. Today, multiphase pumping is considered to boost production beyond natural flow, adding both production and reserves. To go the distance, delivery of electrical power is becoming a key consideration for boosting as well as all electric technologies for trees and manifolds. Production systems face tough flow assurance decisions as high-capital flow assurance methods give way to lower CAPEX/higher OPEX methods. This session is comprised of key technology developments aimed at going to even greater distances subsea.
