Chronicles Of A Flow Assurance Engineer In Operations

Recorded On: 09/13/2017

After a tough year in GoM, BP decided to establish a permanent Flow Assurance Team to support GoM Operations in 2012.  The goal of this talk is to have an open discussion about key lessons from 5 years in operations, best practices, difficult challenges that we have been facing, and how we are evolving as a discipline to cope in the current business environment. Career advice will also be "sprinkled" throughout the talk.

This webinar is categorized under the Production and Operations discipline.
