Early Production Systems and Effective Production Chemistry

Wednesday, December 14, 2016, 11:00am-12:30pm CST

Session Chair:

  • Tim Garza, Baker Hughes

Session Description:

This session will focus on both early production systems and production chemistry and their importance in bringing deepwater systems online effectively and economically.    Early production systems are a short term option to bridge the gap to get more data and prove the reservoir while production chemistry is the enabler which will help effectively start up the deepwater field and be there throughout and help prolong the life of the field.  The importance of effective production chemistry and the significance of early engagement on deepwater projects will be discussed.
