Topside oil and gas production facilities have developed for over half a century as production first moved offshore on fixed platforms with pipelines to today's floating structures with subsea tie-backs and marine offloading systems. Technology trends for offshore topsides systems will continue to mature to keep pace as the industry moves to more remote locations in harsher environments and discovers more challenging production fluids with high CO2/H2S levels, heavy oil, and high water cuts. What are the current best practices in offshore topsides systems? How are controls and communications improving with electronics miniaturization? How can topsides systems handle increasing production volumes in harsher environments? How are industry standards evolving in the global market? This technology showcase will focus on current best practices, technology challenges, and emerging solutions.


The Topsides Technology Showcase, sponsored by the SPE Projects, Facilities & Construction Study Group, will present the following technical areas:


v      Oil Processing

v      Gas compression and CO2 sequestration

v      Water Processing

v      Control Systems

v      Communications
