Frontier Developments and Remote Locations
Scroll down for more
Oil and gas developments are becoming less accessible, requiring extra consideration to be made during the design stage to ensure the main impacts are captured at the concept selection phase. The methods used by Genesis enable influences on the design definition for remote and frontier locations to be identified.
With most of the world's accessible reserves developed, there is an increasing need to consider developments in the less accessible areas of the world. This introduces more challenges at the conceptual design phase to ensure the options being considered are being compared on a valid basis so that the correct solutions are identified and carried forward.
Our recent studies include:
Deserts of Kazakhstan
Gas monetisation in Guyana and Brazil
Jungles of Central Africa
Shale oil in Alaska.
Impacts on design and definition arising from the following are of particular relevance:
Transportation and installation constraints
Logistics and supply
Export options and routes
Adverse environmental conditions (ice to desert).
Transparency is essential so that the client is aware of how the technical definition and subsequent cost and schedule estimates have been built up so that the key project drivers are identified for more detailed investigation and risk management.
