GB 388-AN INDEPENDENT'S APPROACH TO DEEPWATER DEVELOPMENT

The Garden Banks 388 field development is centred around a Floating Production Facility (FPF) which is permanently moored over a 24 slot drilling and production template. This paper describes the production system concept, management style and philosophy which have been employed to develop Garden Banks 388. The paper also discusses why the FPF is considered the best alternative for this particular application. Many of the ideas and strategies used in this project can be applied to any project, whether it be deepwater or more conventional types of projects.
