Khalid Mateen, Vice President of Engineering and Technology for Total E&P Research and Technology, led the charge by suggesting that the sustained period of rising oil prices had made the whole subsea industry complacent and wasteful.
"This industry was waiting for a correction," Mateen said. "Hundred-dollar oil had introduced a lot of inefficiencies. A lot of things which one wouldn't accept otherwise were accepted because everyone was making money...We were not questioning the vendors in the same way we would [now] over why their equipment was costing as much as it did, and why their procurement was inefficient," he said. Savings obliterated And while subsea processing has obvious advantages, it must make economic sense, Mateen said. "Economic sense means costs lower than what you would have if you put it on the topside," he said. "This is where the mindset has to change when it comes to the vendors." Subsea processing itself does not increase production, so if the savings on floaters and mooring systems are obliterated by expensive subsea processing systems, operators will stick to topsides, Mateen said. But I think the mindset has to change and people have to understand that what they were selling before, it is not for the same purpose, and the cost benefit has to come from the cost savings, and not from additional recoveries," Mateen said. But Hamre agreed with Mateen in that, at a time when the low oil price is "killing projects", subsea processing technology must make its case on capex reduction rather than enhanced recovery.

Total's Khalid Mateen also provided his thoughts on EOR planning and execution.
"There are challenges in planning EOR projects in deepwater and also limitations compared to onshore EOR," said Mateen, who serves as VP of Engineering Technology for Total E&P Research and Technology USA. Offshore developments typically use a much wider well spacing, and the oil found in deepwater tends to be more viscous, he noted. The biggest difference is the cost of drilling each well, and that cost results in fewer wells and less familiarity with the downhole conditions, and with the reservoir. Total has several initiatives directed at solving some of the deepwater EOR challenges, Mateen noted. These include qualifying a polymer injection process to use in shallow, high permeability reservoirs with high viscosity oil, such as at Dalia. Subsea separation and processing are in application at Pazflor, and Total is participating in development of the SPRINGS sea-water injection equipment. While there is no "silver bullet" answer to deepwater EOR challenges, Mateen said that it is best to identify an EOR option early, and then employ an integrated approach that involves all disciplines.
