Field Trials Help Boost Processing Capacity of Offshore Facility Above Nameplate Limit
The Constitution spar in the Gulf of Mexico has an original nameplate separation capacity of 70,000 BOPD and 200 MMscf/D of gas. Production potential from future developments is expected to exceed this limit.
Systematic Coiled-Tubing-Efficiency Improvement Reduces Operational Time
Deepwater coiled-tubing (CT) well interventions can benefit from significant rig-time reduction and cost savings associated with improved efficiencies of surface processes.
New Deepwater, High-Pressure GOM Tubular Maximizes Capability, Reduces Cost
A 2-year comprehensive effort to design, test, manufacture, and deploy a new high-pressure completion tubular for Chevron’s deepwater Gulf of Mexico (GOM) operations is presented.
New Improvements to Deepwater Subsea Measurement
A RPSEA project identified the gaps in technology that are the most pressing for multiphase-flow measurement.
Single-Gradient Subsea-Mud-Lift-Drilling Technology in Deepwater Gulf of Mexico
As with other MPD systems, SMD technology offers early detection of influxes (kicks) and minimizes downhole losses to weak subsurface formations.
Process Support and Marine Systems in a Spar Hull: Innovation Meets Regulation
Historically, the marine systems on a spar are relatively simple.
Implementation of an Acoustic Automatic Leak-Detection Sonar in the Gulf of Mexico
The authors have developed an active acoustic automatic leak-detection sonar designed to detect hydrocarbon leaks (mono- and multiphase oil and gas) at significant ranges, allowing coverage of wide areas from a single sensor.
