Global oil and gas, deepwater challenges and the use of alternative methods and materials for deepwater oil and gas production

International Symposium on Microalloyed Steels for the Oil and Gas Industry

The easy oil has been discovered. The focus is now on the development of the remote fields, the marginal fields and/or the more technically challenging deepwater fields. Developers of oil & gas projects face many challenges some of which are location specific and others are more common such as high development cost, political obstacles and shortage of human capital. This presentation addresses these challenges and the engineering and materials development advances required to overcome them and to develop and produce the next generation of resources.
