E&P Magazine - February 2018
This month E&P takes a step back to the basics with a look at how operators are identifying the best locations to place subsea equipment during the field development phase. Other stories include a dive into the considerations made during the design and selection process of subsea production systems. Also covered is a new digital platform that integrates robotics, artificial intelligence and original predictive analytics to advance subsea inspection services. The section wraps up with up with an overview of how operators are bringing together current infrastructure with future subsea projects.
Before deploying subsea development strategies, operators need to know where their equipment is going.
