Register Today for January Flow Assurance Technical Section Luncheon

SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section Presents:

Correlating Flow Regimes and Fluid Properties with Corrosion in Pipelines
Presenter:  Dr. Probjot Singh, ConocoPhillips

When: Thursday, 22 January from 1100 to 1300 hours CDT
Where: Norris Conference Center, CityCentre, 816 Town & Country Blvd., Suite 210, Houston, TX
Registration Fee: SPE Member, USD 40; Nonmember, USD 50

Presentation Topic:
The presentation will discuss corrosion mechanisms that have emerged in production systems due to changes in flow regimes and thermal behavior as conditions changed during field operations. We will see how corrosion monitoring data with fluid analyses, flow modeling, and additional laboratory testing have been effectively used to understand the corrosion mechanism and develop solutions for control.

Register Today for 20 May SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section Luncheon

SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section Presents:
Production and Flow Assurance Benefits of Subsea Processing
Presenter: Randy Wester, Global Director of Subsea Engineering at FMC Technologies

When: Tuesday, 20 May from 1100 to 1300 hours CDT
Where: Norris Conference Center, CityCentre, 816 Town & Country Blvd., Suite 210, Houston, TX, USA 77024
Registration Fee: SPE Member, USD 40; Nonmember, USD 50

Presentation Topic

The future of offshore oil and gas production in ultra-deep water and/or ultra-long distance tieback applications will include the capability to develop those fields using subsea technology exclusively, without the need for offshore host facilities. We will also discuss the enabling technologies for these subsea field developments and the production and flow assurance benefits of subsea processing in these applications.

SPE R&D Competition: Help Spread the Word

The oil and gas E&P industry faces big challenges as it rises to meet the world’s growing energy needs. And we don’t have all the answers. For that reason, SPE is holding a Research & Development Competition specifically to encourage researchers from the basic sciences and other engineering disciplines to engage in our six Grand Challenges.

The competition is open to academia, research institutes and organizations, companies, and individual investigators. Submissions for the competition are being accepted online through 1 June 2014.

Help spread the word by telling friends and colleagues you think would want to participate in the SPE R&D Competition.
