The development of marginal fields offshoreWest Africa poses huge technology challenges. These challenges are further complicated as the field is located offshore with long step-out distance from existing processing facilities.
A good number of such fields exist offshore Nigeria with no concrete plans fully in place yet to develop them. These fields’ remotely located offshores require one form of processing or another before it can be commercially productive.
Subsea processing is maturing to become one of the most innovative technologies in the offshore industry, according to Dr. Nimi Abili, subsea project manager for Eni’s E&P division.
In his presentation entitled “subsea processing, a strategic approach to realize value on offshore marginal field development,” Abili will discuss how subsea processing offers a viable and attractive approach in developing these fields. Qualifications of the different technologies available for subsea processing will be reviewed, and their various readiness levels determined.
Abili’s presentation is scheduled to take place Tuesday, Jan. 20, from 14:30-15:00, in the Abora Suite of the Eko Hotel & Suites on Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. For more information, please visitwww.offshorewestafrica.com.
