Fixed & Floating Offshore Production

DeepStar committee's role is to further technology, develop integrity management protocols and fill gaps related to deepwater floating systems and their associated moorings and risers. While the MetOcean's goal is to improve knowledge and modeling capabilities of the circulation flow, which will provide more accurate facility design criteria and reduce downtime during deepwater drilling operations.

Green House Gas (GHG) Emissions / Carbon Abatement

The acceleration of the energy transition, significant transformation in our industry and an unprecedented pandemic mean the world is changing significantly. The transition will require conscious investment decision in GHG abatement technologies. Offshore industry will need to develop scalable integrated solutions under a new set of standards. This focused sub-committee in this space of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Carbon Abatement will be helpful for all the DeepStar members.
