The topic

The presentation will discuss the aspects of flow assurance challenges associated with deepwater subsea developments, particularly for long subsea tie-back projects.

Often one of the main operating concerns for deepwater subsea developments is hydrates and how best to operate outside the hydrate region. Flow assurance challenges often occur at the end of field life at low flowrates and how to extend the field life. However in order to optimise the MEG system (storage and process capacity) as well as addressing slugging and well start-up for late field life, flow assurance needs to be done in the design phase. This presentation highlights and addresses these issues.

The speaker

Mustafa Mahmood MIChemE has 23 years' experience in conceptual and detail design of onshore / offshore projects. He is currently Flow Assurance Manager on deepwater developments at Intecsea and developing the Flow Assurance Team for South East Asia. He has extensive experience in all aspects of subsea process design and flow assurance for deepwater projects and was lead flow assurance engineer for subsea gas-condensate pipelines for an LNG project in Australia.

The venue

The event will take place at the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, 160 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
