Digital Energy: Real-time Monitoring and Production Optimization of Subsea Fields

As subsea oil and gas developments continue in deep offshore and remote regions, the need for real-time monitoring to optimize production operations and asset integrity becomes more important in the industry.  Considering the large CAPEX investments associated with such deepwater subsea fields, there is increased industry focus on improved reservoir recovery, condition and performance monitoring and production optimization.  To respond to this need, real-time systems such as FMC's FlowManagerTM have been developed to produce accurate monitoring of production and injection rates, monitoring of flow assurance performance such as liquid hold-up in flow lines, hydrate monitoring, formation water break-through, choke optimization, wax buildup in flow lines and abnormal blockages in subsea systems.
In this presentation, FMC Technologies will describe how model-based software system delivers real-time performance monitoring of subsea fields to enable optimized production and minimize costly downtime.  The presentation will cover example applications of this system in several subsea fields currently in operation or under development.
