BWA Finishes Deepwater

Gulf Of Mexico Floating

Production Study

Brian Watt Associates, Inc. (BWA) of Houston recently pre- sented the final results of its study on the use of semisubmersible ves- sels for oil production in deep waters in the Gulf of Mexico. The study evaluated marginal and full field development in 1,700-foot and 3,000-foot water depths.

BWA performed the work in con- junction with Hughes Offshore, No- ble Denton Associates, C-E Natco, and Coflexip. The work required 12 months to complete at a cost of more than $750,000. BWA an- nounced that the study had shown that semisubmersible-based float- ing production systems provide a very cost-effective solution for pro- duction in deep water.
