Producing offshore resources poses some of the greatest technical challenges currently facing the oil and gas industry. Common practice onshore can be significantly complicated when working offshore. Major concepts and important developments in the field of offshore multiphase production operations are collected in this two-volume set of papers, now available on one CD. Volume I covers multiphase flow theory and flow assurance; knowledge of multiphase flow theory is essential to understanding flow-assurance concepts. Volume II explains the role of production systems, separation methods, produced-water handling, artificial lift, multiphase pumping, and multiphase metering. Both volumes include an annotated bibliography for additional reference.
