Description

                  The deepwater basins around the world contain vast hydrocarbon resources, which await discovery and development. Our challenge today is to recover these resources profitably while investing in developing the technology needed and assuring that risk and uncertainties are managed and mitigated. The challenge is even increasing with discoveries in areas in deeper waters, no export infrastructure, long distances for tie-backs to existing ones, deeper wells and high pressure/high temperature environment. The experience of matching the field development scheme to the reservoir uncertainties and site characteristics is a key to ensuring success. Industry has developed both the dry and wet tree concepts for water depths up to 5000ft and 7000ft respectively and breakthrough technologies are thought out to enable production in ultra deep waters (up to 10000ft). Execution capability is another area critical for deepwater projects success. The author has been involved in Deepwater projects from front end engineering and economics to project execution. Successful strategy for front end scenario planning, concept ranking, project execution will be presented along with insights of the key drivers of development economics and Capital Productivity.

We highly recommend that you pre-register for this event.  Walk-ins will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.  All walk-ins will be charged $40 at the door.

Early Production Project Leader for BP Sakhalin Development Unit
BP America

Dr. K. Abou-Sayed started her career with BP in 1985 in Deepwater Technology unit and is currently the Early Production Project Leader for BP Sakhalin Development Unit. She brings a wealth of experience having spent the last 20 years advancing concepts and project development in the deepwater frontier, with experience spanning from when deepwater was just greater than 1,500 feet to its current defined depth of greater than 10,000 feet. She has made major contributions to the efforts in appraisal excellence, standardization, project integration and assurance and has been instrumental in the sanctioning of several deepwater projects for BP and its respective partners, such as Pompano, Mars, Ursa, Crosby and Atlantis. She is uniquely positioned within the deepwater community as she has both deep technical and commercial strengths.


Her ability to integrate her experience in floating systems with subsurface, economics and planning will uniquely position her for delivering SPE sectional audiences insightful recap of strategic and technical aspects of this challenging but promising area.
