RPSEA's Ultra-Deepwater Technical Advisory Committees (TAC) focus on a particular ultra-deepwater technology area. The role of the TACs, with representation from subject matter experts who study and apply ultra-deepwater technologies in real field situations, is to identify current technology gaps and define the specific R&D efforts needed to address these gaps. As such, the TACs provide a bottom-up, end-user-driven program.
There are a total of six UDW TACs.
The UDW TACs are open to the public.
The Flow Assurance TAC 's goal is to assure reliable and economic production in deepwater by the appropriate design and operation through prediction, management remediation of deposition and line plugs by focusing on organic, inorganic and solids management.
