Unlocking Deepwater Gas Reserves in the Mediterranean Sea: Field Development Solutions and Technology Readiness Assessment for Ultra-Long Tie-Backs

Natural gas production plays a strategic role in the energy transition plans of European countries, international and national oil companies. Multiple Deepwater gas discoveries in the Mediterranean region can be developed to meet the increasing gas demand in Europe. The main characteristics of this specific region are a combination of stranded Deepwater gas reservoirs, and often ultra-long tie-back distances of up to 400km between subsea production wells and host facilities that may either be located offshore or onshore. This presentation will give an overview of the following technologies and how they can be combined to unlock the full value of Deepwater gas field developments: instrumented all-electric subsea production systems, power distribution, fiber optics communication, and cloud-based remote production monitoring & optimization digital solutions.
