SPE AGM & Luncheon - Emerging technology assessment for subsea fields of the future
Most of the easy subsea oil and gas reserves have been discovered and are being developed. Future subsea developments will therefore need emerging or new technologies for fields that are economically marginal, in deeper waters and with longer offsets. Even existing reserves could benefit from enhanced recovery techniques.
This presentation examines some of the technologies being developed for future subsea production, assesses their maturity and identifies the technology gaps and commercialisation necessary to make them economically and technically viable for operators. This presentation also takes a look at a potential subsea field of the future.
