Paper Title:
Challenges of Deepwater Developments
  Abstract

This keynote paper attempts to catalogue the key business drivers for deepwater developments especially for the Mediterranean, Gulf of Guinea, Gulf of Mexico and other deepwater environments and the challenges arising thereof. The paper goes further to provide some in-depth analysis of the key technical issues such as subsea production systems integrity, multiphase flow assurance management, lessons learned from the shallow water as well as the deepwater areas like the North Sea before addressing some of the technology developments and competency required to take the new regions forward. . The paper ends with a presentation of what the new National Subsea Research Institute [NSRI] in the United Kingdom is doing and can do to support future deepwater developments.
