The extreme water depths of some fields and their remoteness from markets already have raised the economic and technical challenges of using pipelines in deep water to the point that producers have begun rethinking oil transportation strategies and revising development plans. Shuttle tankers have recently emerged to challenge pipelines for the right to transport oil from future deepwater oil developments in the gulf.
This workshop features producers in the deepwater gulf, offshore pipelines, and shuttle tanker companies discussing the real-world oil-transportation issues with which theyÕre grappling, and the new business models and transportation options that will help keep deepwater oil development in the region vital. This exchange of views will be set up and punctuated by a keynote address by noted energy analyst Matt Simmons, who has identified transportation as a key, third phase of continuing oil development in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

$380 in advance, $450 at the door. Substitutions OK. No refunds. Will discuss block bookings by companies. This event is staged as a service to the industry by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), a non profit organization. When attendance has resulted in a surplus, in past years SPE has devoted a portion of it to scholarships for Houston area students to study petroleum engineering at area colleges.
