Floating and Subsea Technologies - Innovation Initiatives


SE16 Floating and Subsea Technologies - Innovation Initiatives

Wednesday, 30 October
Room B2
The offshore industry has more than three decades of experience with the development and deployment of floating and subsea technologies in deep (>500 m) and ultra-deep (> 1,500 m) waters. Most of the ultra-deep water experience has been gained from the fields in Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, and West of Africa. The significant exploration activities undergoing in the deep and ultra-deep waters of more than eight South American countries require cost effective solutions to enable development of these fields. This Panel will present and discuss the innovation initiatives by the industry to further develop solutions for deepwater production facilities (floating and subsea units, risers, umbilicals, pipelines and flowlines) and reduce their capital and operating costs. The innovation initiatives range from variations in design and execution plans to qualification of specific new technologies. The digitalization of these facilities is also providing means to further reduce capital and operating costs and enhance productivity, safety, and reduce environmental impact. In addition, the potential value from renewable energy to subsea and field operations is being evaluated. These initiatives are in various stages of development and some are being implemented in the deepwater fields in Brazil and Guyana. Several of these innovative technology initiatives would find first applications in the South American fields and achieve their Technology Readiness Level (TRL) from 5 to 7 after operating for 3 years.
