The presentation will focus on the prospect of increased recovery of oil and gas by implementation of subsea boosting systems, and how these systems enables development of marginal and deep-water assets in remote locations. An overview of a typical multiphase boosting system emphasising key design features will be given, as well as examples where the technology has been applied. 


Rudisham (Rudi) Marjohan graduated as a Mining Engineer from the Technical University of Nova Scotia, Canada in 1993 with a minor in Petroleum Engineering. Since graduating, Rudi has been serving in the engineering, mining, and oil and gas industries in various capacities and in the later part as a Project Manager. He is a hands-on person and had spent considerable amount of time overseeing and actively participating in exploration and drilling activities, mainly with Canadian, Australian and Japanese operators.  In 2008 Rudi moved into multiphase and subsea processing technology within the subsea/deep-water production environment with Framo Engineering. He currently serves as an Area Sales Manager with Framo Engineering Asia Pacific, based in Kuala Lumpur.
