Session I of the Summer Series on “Floating Production Systems” is sponsored by GATE, Inc. and presents an operator’s view on key drivers for floating production systems concept selection. Technical aspects of the concept selection will be discussed via a demonstration of sizing a wet tree semi-submersible for a deep water field in the GOM.
Deep water will require a large portfolio of projects to be developed with floating production systems. While FPSO vessels are expected to dominate the concept selection primarily from lack of pipeline infrastructure, semi-submersibles, spars, and tension leg platforms are often candidates for fields where existing infrastructures are available. Many operators have a large portfolio of floating systems and continuously explore development opportunities that may require floating production systems to develop.
These sessions are perfect opportunities for either an introduction to Floating Production Systems for the engineer just starting in the industry, a refresher for the more seasoned individual, or just a great networking opportunity for those involved in this arena. Each session is scheduled as a one (1) hour presentation followed by a thirty (30) minute Q&A period.
