Join us at OTC for a project management networking event on 8 May, “Assuring Technical Competence in Major Infrastructure Projects,” sponsored by Oil and Gas Facilities magazine. A moderator and panel of offshore industry project managers will discuss potential problems in assuring the technical quality of facilities projects.
A feature covers advancements in mercury removal from crude oil, discussing an upstream mercury removal plant in Argentina. Further development of the technology aims to reduce its footprint to allow for installations on offshore platforms.
SPE members who have designated Projects, Facilities, and Construction as their primary or secondary discipline receive Oil and Gas Facilities magazine at no cost. Subscriptions are also available to nonmembers and members who select other disciplines.
Subsea Processing in general requires maintenance free reliable high-end instrumentation. In a subsea multi-phase separator, the operators control the process by monitoring the oil and water interface levels as well as the emulsion layer and sedimentation of sand using a nucleonic density profiler. In addition to having the monitoring features, subsea instrumentation needs to go through comprehensive qualification tests in order to run continuously and without maintenance. The design life is 20 years.
A virtual place where you can meet, collaborate, and discuss specific technical challenges and resolutions, SPE Connect is now your link to SPE members in the Project, Facilities and Construction (PFC) discipline worldwide.
