An Insight to Current Flow Assurance Technologies

The Flow Assurance Technical Section presents this event detailing how subsea developments are continuing to escalate in quantity and complexity as the E&P companies ramp up exploration of deep water and ultra-deepwater reservoirs with complex formations in harsh environments. The challenges are exponentially increasing as we go not only deeper but also further into sea. Hence, more flow assurance challenges and more operability issues.

Dr. Kondapi is going to give an overview on some significant flow assurance challenges and various state-of-the art flow assurance technologies. In his talk, he will summarize the current state of key technologies and areas for potential improvement which may have major impact on both production and cost effectiveness.

This webinar is categorized under the Projects, Facilities, and Construction discipline.
