Patrick O’Brien talks Subsea processing

April 10, 2013

Tech talk. With the 44th Offshore Technology Conference in Houston just on the horizon, OE sought answers to the question, “What emerging technology will have a direct impact on the offshore market?” Our think tank had this to say:

Subsea processing is an emerging technology that will have an impact in 2013 and beyond. Currently, a number of subsea processing units are operational on a small number of milestone projects around the world. This proving ground for subsea gas/ liquid separation, gas compression, water re-injection, and boosting is succeeding, and more units are planned. I expect the industry to accelerate its adoption of this technology, which will help extend field life, increase reservoir recoverability and exploit more deepwater developments around the world.
