Offshore Production Facilities

Starting with a broad look at the offshore oil and gas industry, including its history, current scope, trends, challenges and an overview of regulatory environments, this Topic examines the primary design considerations for offshore production facilities and identifies key drivers and decision factors in offshore project development. It goes on to describe the various types of platforms, surface components and subsea production facilities: their design features, equipment components operating considerations and areas of application. Included are discussions of offshore pipelines, production equipment and operations, and requirements for decommissioning and removal of offshore facilities. The presentation concludes with case studies of deepwater operations in West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico.

Hydrate Flow Assurance Modeling — Predicting Hydrate Formation in Oil & Gas Pipelines

Gas hydrate formation in oil and gas pipelines may cause flow assurance problems, especially in deep water subsea tiebacks. Agglomeration and bedding of hydrates particles and its deposition on pipe walls may form blockages that stop production. This presentation will cover the systems approach that we, at the Center for Hydrate Research of the Colorado School of Mines, have followed to design our mathematical models to predict gas hydrate formation in multiphase flow pipelines.
