Flow Assurance in Deepwater Developments - Terry Wood, INTECSEA Ltd

Date From: 09 October 2012
Location: England
Description: The talk will highlight the main flow assurance challenges, the design processes followed in undertaking flow assurance assessments and the impact deepwater exploration has on these challenges.
Event Type: Special Interest Groups
Venue: IChemE, London and online via web broadcast

The challenges with moving to more remote and deeper water areas affects all areas of design and results in establishing different approaches to facilitate production. The transportation of multiphase hydrocarbon production and the fluid production chemistry has a major impact on the design and operation of subsea and pipeline facilities; therefore the assessment of these issues is a fundamental requirement in offshore developments.
