Subsea UK event to explore developments in flow assurance
20 March 2019
The developments which have taken place in flow assurance over the last thirty years are set to be discussed at an event run by Subsea UK in Aberdeen this month.
A number of experts will explore the challenges and new developments taking place in flow assurance at the one-day conference, which will take place on Thursday, 28 March at Norwood Hall Hotel.
Sponsored by Proserv, speakers at the event will include representatives from; Wood PLC, The Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC), Tracerco, Xodus, OneSubsea, Advisian, Assured Flow Solutions, Blue Gentoo and Crondall Energy.
The conference will explore the new technology being developed to improve flow assurance, including developments in data management, fluid chemistry, scanning equipment, sensors and predictive maintenance. The challenges presented by traditional wax management will also be discussed.
Attendees will also be given an update on the ongoing study to consider the economic impact of applying Pseudo Dry Gas technology to stranded gas fields in the West of Shetland.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: "One of the key challenges in ensuring that offshore operations are cost effective is ensuring that there is no disruption to the flow from a pipeline, making effective flow assurance vital to ensuring the success of a project.
"Our event will give companies a unique opportunity to explore the changes which have taken place in flow assurance over the last thirty years. We look forward to welcoming a number of experts in this field and hosting some high-level discussions on the topic.”
