Reassessment of Multiphase Pumps for Marginal-Field Development

Journal of Petroleum Technology 

This paper focuses on the applicability of subsea-processing technology (SPT) using multiphase pumps (MPPs) to develop marginal fields commercially. A technology selection consisted of a comparison of performances of several SPTs for effective development of marginal fields and was evaluated further with an analytical hierarchical process, resulting in the most effective innovative SPT for marginal-field development. The findings of this process were validated further in their applications to real fields, reflected in specific field-case simulation studies. Most of the world's exploration-and-production companies have a significant number of unconventional and remote fields in their portfolios. Recent industrial effort has been focused on the accelerated development of SPT.
