Talk Description
The Gulf of Guinea has been a major oil province for over fifty years, but over the past ten years the region has seen a rapid growth in the number of developments in deep water. From the massive Bonga development to smaller subsea tie-backs, oil and gas production has moved to water depths of 2,000 metres and more. The challenges in moving further offshore and into deeper, frontier areas of West Africa are not purely technical. Bringing North Sea and Gulf of Mexico expertise to the Gulf of Guinea has led to important discussions on how the areas economies can best benefit not just from the hydrocarbon production but from the development of indigenous technical expertise and the establishment of a supply chain which can export to other countries. This presentation looks at several of the projects which have been completed and also some in progress to highlight these challenges.
