SPECIAL NOTICE: Due to unforseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled.

 

Session VI of the Summer Series on “Floating Production Systems” presents the similarities and differences between Spars and the BuoyantTowerTM and how each design met the challenges and delivered solutions to the clients.

The Spars have been a deepwater enabling technology in the offshore oil and gas industry.  The first drilling and production classic spar, Neptune, was installed in the Gulf of Mexico.  The design has evolved from the classic spar, to the truss spar and on to the cell spar, based on the Ed Horton portfolio of intellectual properties.

Today the same group that brought the spar to market, have now developed a self-installing shallow water compliant tower spar as a cost effective, relocatable enabler, which can be favorably compared to a jacket for production and drilling.  Named the BuoyantTowerTM, the unit is operating today offshore Peru, configured for drilling and production.  and how each design met the challenges and delivered solutions to the clients.

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.
