Deep Dive - Tiebacks with Seafloor Pumping
Postponed Until Further Notice
In light of developing circumstances, Petroleum ETC is canceling Subsea Tieback & MPUR in Italy 2020 scheduled to take place in Stresa, Italy, March 25-26. We do this with profound disappointment. Over the last few days, concern has mounted rapidly about the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The World Health Organization raised the threat level on Friday 21, of February and the ASME canceled a summit meeting scheduled in Asia, an increasing number of Operator companies are instituting travel bans and restrictions. Border health checks are becoming more restrictive, and there is growing concern about traveling to different parts of the world—speakers and attendees are from many countries, which is a concern for us. The President of the United States has issued travel bands to Italy and many other European countries, which has affected participation in MPUR in Italy. Our number one concern is the health and safety of delegates and speakers, our partners, our colleagues and vendors. We have spent the last several weeks focused on this question, have been in continuous tracking the news as it becomes available on the infectious disease. But the spread of COVID-19 is moving quickly around the world. Petroleum ETC is committed to its mission of advancing petroleum technology and sharing ideas among the global energy community, and we will continue with MPUR 2021 in Houston on April 29, 2021. We have made this decision reluctantly and after deep consideration. We recognize the dedication and importance of the Multiphase Pump User Roundtable community. We thank you for your engagement and your commitment to MPUR.
About The Workshop
Attendance to Deep Dive Tiebacks with Seafloor Pumping will teach you everything you need to know if you are making the decision to use subsea tiebacks. Attend the Deep Dive before attending MPUR in Italy.
This one-day workshop will focus on the various elements of subsea tieback architecture with an emphasis on clearing the Final Investment Decision. Attendees will learn about various subsea production schemes that meet near-term financial/production targets without sacrificing long-term viability. While the long-term value of deepwater fields is well established, sanctioning of these projects in the current low-price environment is a challenge. Seabed boosting is emerging as an enabling technology; one that has matured to the point of being both affordable and reliable. When integrated with a subsea tieback completion, this system can liberate stranded fields by eliminating surface piercing structures and dramatically improving the economics of a project. In some applications, this technology, introduced as part of an integrated system, can not only eliminate the need for a surface facility, but reduce the number of production wells being drilled. With the proper boosting system, early production can be regulated to ensure Capex recovery without risk to the formation or overall life of the field. This Deep Dive Course will explore the various components of such a system and how they work together to improve overall recovery and reduce costs. Beyond the hardware and technology, this workshop will examine various development scenarios where a seabed booster system would impact the economics of a greenfield or redevelopment project.
Why Should I Attend?
"The Shift to Tiebacks and Seafloor Pumping for Deepwater Developments”
Reduced commodity prices are dramatically transforming development strategies for deepwater fields. Over the past two years, project teams have seen many options to improve project economics eliminated. The focus on value has pushed tieback and seafloor boosting to the forefront as the most effective means to achieve and sustain economic flow rates from new discoveries. This workshop maps out the case for seafloor boosting as an enabling technology for tieback developments. Tiebacks require different considerations than the hub-based seafloor boosting systems recently installed in the USA Gulf of Mexico and for mega project West Africa. Current and emerging seafloor boosting products are detailed along with advantages offered by different approaches to tieback seafloor multiphase boosting.
Why leave deepwater discoveries untapped? This workshop presents an affordable option to bring stranded fields online now. Taught by subject matter experts from both operator and supplier companies, this course will be presented with the aid of real-world examples. Learn how to extend the reach of subsea tiebacks and eliminate the need for additional HUB facilities without flow assurance issues, slugging or unscheduled shut-ins. Subsea booster pumps are just one aspect of a complex subsea tieback design. Attendees will become familiar with the various components of such a system and how these components can be mixed and matched to address specific challenges. These challenges include lack of existing infrastructure, seabed terrain, flow composition and the possible need for intervention. These various technical sessions will be grounded in case study presentations of high-profile multi-phase seabed boosting systems, demonstrating the evolution of this technology and its various applications.
Session topics include:
•Multiphase Flow/Pumping - grounding session on multiphase flow/slugging; contrasting available seafloor pumping technologies. Impact on well performance and EUR.
•Topside-less Options - overview of current and emerging options including ESPs, canned motors, subsea speed control and alternative barrier fluids
•Subsea System Decision Considerations - a systemic view of characteristics identification and attribute processing to build creative alternatives
•Development Parameters - seabed landscape, facilities alternatives and life cycle factors to optimize upon a solution selection; will cover geography, architecture and operations and surveillance.
