FACING THE GIANT CHALLENGE OF LOW BREAKEVEN COSTS

The Brazilian opportunity for everyone is very real - the resource is there, and it can be developed. As evidenced by Libra recently starting production, new technology is critical to maintaining growth; it is clear.

Recovery rates now are at about 30 per cent. Increasing this to 45-50 per cent would be a huge opportunity. The opportunity is from being able to bring lifting costs down to under $8 a barrel. Pumping and power are the key areas to make this happen. Linking subsea wells has been shown to make pressure management easier.

The Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference is very timely to help flow assurance and production experts address this challenge, with the latest state-of-the-art technologies and lessons learned for boosting production whilst reducing as subsea development water depths and step-out lengths increase. See you in Rio!

Abraços,

09:30 Subsea Boosting for the Pre-salt
What does the future of Subsea Seabed Pumping look like? How does one decide what technology to use for an application? What is the most critical operating condition for a subsea multiphase pump seal? What are the issues in qualification of boosting and pumping systems?

LIBRA ISSUES AND INSIGHTS

Libra will become a supergiant field, with several opportunities and challenges for the next years. How has it changed paradigms and expanded technological boundaries?

SUBSEA BOOSTING

Technological leadership is the name of the game. Hear how OneSubsea®’s clients achieve first oil faster, accelerate production and increase recovery to maximize the financial return on investment on Day 1, 12pm.

GULF OF MEXICO CASE STUDY

GoM operator has seen enhanced production and field life extension through innovative subsea boosting approaches.

A special section on Day 1 includes international case studies.

DECOMMISSIONING & ABANDONMENT

There are about 20 platforms in Brazil that are no longer producing, and another 30 or more that are producing so little oil. Decommissioning represents an opportunity for a whole new chain of suppliers.

MULTIPHASE TECHNIQUES

Without subsea multiphase technology, it wouldn’t have been possible to develop and produce oil on the enormous Brazilian pre-salt fields like Libra and Lula. Benefit from this session.

SMART SUBSEA

Smart subsea solutions enable us to cross new frontiers, start production in areas where it was not possible in the past, and add value to the oil & gas industry. Attend this session.

LOWERING BREAKEVEN

Pre-salt today is much more competitive and much more productive than was ever imagined. Discover how technology and better knowledge of geology.

SUBSEA POWER

Cost reduction is one of the major drivers behind subsea power. The savings that can be achieved via one long power cable distributed to many subsea loads are substantial.

PRE-SALT TOOLS & TECHNIQUES

When operating in the most inhospitable places, like the bottom of the sea, get all the best tools, such as Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), underwater robots that can work at depths of up to 3,000 meters.

WOMEN LEADERS IN SUBSEA

An increasing number of women have exhibited technical leadership in helping solve critical technical challenges. Be inspired in this session.

HEAVY OIL

Large resources of heavy oil have been discovered during the last 6 years and are under evaluation. In this scenario, the development of technologies that improve the economics of such discoveries is critical.

TECHNICAL PARTNERSHIPS

Brazil is key for many international oil companies’ growth. Hear how technical partnerships have reduced the cost burden and how you can benefit too.

INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE

Reliability is ultra-critical for subsea equipment, as it must be designed for long life with minimum intervention for maintenance or repair. Experts at the conference get you in on fresh approaches to reliable installation and maintenance.

STANDARDS IN SUBSEA BOOSTING

Big. Heavy. Costly. No More. Subsea boosting has been in use for 20 years, and simpler, lighter, and configurable innovations have improved business case for many fields. More in this session.

AFRICAN CASE STUDY

Hear insights dug through hundreds of successful cases from the basins in Africa as experienced by top solution providers.

ADVANCED PUMPS

With the new oil discoveries and Petrobras planned $174.4 billion investment over the next few years, mostly in developing the pre-salt layer, advanced pumps are a must to deliver.
