Mega Project - Whale: Deepwater Host Replication

Wednesday, 8 May
For more than a decade, as deepwater oil and gas has reached a technologically mature phase, the industry has pursued the ambition to achieve replication in the delivery of deep water host facilities with varying levels of success. Reservoir characteristics, metocean conditions, equipment standardization, design replication, team replication, repeat execution strategies, leadership support and a willingness to make value trade-offs are key elements that determine the extent of replication that can be achieved. In this panel session, the Shell Whale project will share its experience in replicating the Vito floating production unit, the benefits, challenges and potential for what the industry can achieve in the future.
