Whitepaper summary

The medium term energy outlook remains robust and there has never been a more important time for companies to position themselves to deal with longer term. Having a production-centred plant is the biggest enabler for achieving optimal positioning on the cost curve. A production centred plant is one that places priority on Efficiency, Availability and Reliability; Safety & Security; and Human Reliability.

This whitepaper outlines:

  • where you can make improvements to production and engineering
  • getting bang for your buck on projects
  • how digitalization is an enabler
  • a case study matching well deliverability to topside power generation and compressor availability was able to boost FPSO production by 9,000 b/d
