Risk based assessment of flow assurance challenges in investment decisions, 15:30 Wednesday 11 March
Damien will be presenting a paper on how a structured approach can be applied to the risk assessment of flow assurance challenges to support investment decisions. He will then detail how this approach has been embodied in a software tool called the Risk Based Flow Assurance Toolkit (RiBFAT). Damien will introduce the benefits of using RiBFAT, including how research participants will be able to:

  • Make informed investment decisions based on justified and auditable Flow Assurance information, making the best use of available data;
  • Develop future assessments using a standardised, repeatable process;
  • Increase confidence in assessments through comparison within the industry without comprising confidential data;
  • Prioritise research and development on the key cost drivers; and
  • Influence the future development of an industry agreed approach.

Damien will then detail the key lessons learned and the next steps for this research project.
