Duncan Peace and Joel Maisey from Crondall’s technology subsidiary Buoyant Production Technologies Ltd will next month be attending the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas.

On the 7th May 2019, Duncan and Joel will be hosting the 2nd in Crondall’s series of breakfast briefings titled 'The future of unattended installations – stretching the envelope'.

In today’s oil and gas market there is increasing pressure on operators and contractors to reduce life-cycle costs and improve field economics to remain competitive.

New process technologies coupled with developments in control, digitally enabled equipment and materials provide the opportunity to deliver increasingly complex un-manned facilities. These un-manned facilities (or “Normally Un-attended Installations – usually referred to as NUIs) have both a lower opex because they do not need to be manned and a lower capex, because the overall design and equipment is simpler and more compact.

In the second of our 2019 series of breakfast briefings, Duncan Peace and Joel Maisey will update attendees on the latest thinking on these topics and describe how far these new technologies can take the industry over the next few years. They will also provide some guidance on how companies can become more familiar with the technologies and designs that will allow them to access this exciting future.

During the week, Joel Maisey, Principal Engineer, will also be presenting a session “Topside Innovative Processing and Design”. The focus for this will surround his recent paper titled ‘New Concepts for a Normally Unattended Installation (NUI) Design Operation Automation and Digitalization’.

Joel will be discussing this topic on the 8th May 2019, 9.30-12pm in Room 312, NRG Centre.
