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.
How do we optimize energy efficiency by using waste heat recovery?
What are the latest advances in water injection?
What are the benefits of subsea tiebacks?
How do we keep corrosion under control?
What are the major problems with offshore fabrication?
How are the exported fluids measured?
This technology showcase will focus on current best practices, technology challenges, and emerging solutions. This showcase aims to provide delegates with a unique blend of commercial and technical opportunities. Presentations will cover all aspects of the respective topics from fundamentals to current best practice. The Topsides Technology Showcase, sponsored by the SPE Projects, Facilities & Construction Study Group, will present the following technical areas:
