Tim Daigle is a senior project engineer within the Subsea Engineering Group of Fluor Offshore Solutions. He is currently splitting his time as the Project Manager for the RPSEA DW3100 Study, Seabed Discharge of Produced Water and/or Solids and as Interface Manager for the BG Starfish Subsea Tieback Project. He is focused on subsea multiphase metering, subsea control systems, subsea processing and separation and produced water treatment, as well as flow assurance.



With a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, he now has 19 years of oil and gas industry experience, primarily with PVT sampling and analyses and well testing using multiphase flow meters. He played a significant role in helping to introduce the multiphase metering technology to the oilfield. He has held an advisory board member position with the Multiphase Measurement Roundtable and is a founding advisor for the North American Flow Measurement Workshop. He currently serves on the advisory committee for the 2011 and 2012 ChemInnovations Conference and was also named 2010 Author of the Year for the Fluor Corporation.


 



Full Description
Today’s Petroleum Industry is being confronted with having to manage production with increasing amounts of produced water from production wells. Many engineers throughout the industry believe that good produced water management is the single most important aspect to extending the life of a producing reservoir. Providing quality measurements for monitoring fluid production in the subsea processing system will be a critical part of properly managing that production.

With the increasing regulations and changing requirements found throughout the industry, the need for new measurement techniques and more reliable technologies is even more important. This presentation will help identify the major measurement challenges with the implementation of subsea processing. It will highlight the different state of the art measurement principles and technologies that can be used in subsea processing. It will also address the gaps to improve the confidence of measurement technologies that would be needed at specific points in the subsea processing system.

This 45 minute presentation will allow the audience additional time for a question and answers on the potentially controversial subject.
