3rd EMBT 2010

Substantial results in long-term research and development efforts account for the evolution of Multiphase Boosting, and this is ongoing year by year. Like aerospace technology and Formula 1 racing technology for our daily life, subsea multiphase boosting guides the way for a variety of high integrity components and sub-systems to be used. Once again, following the successful conferences in 2006 and 2008, industrial researchers and universities will present their latest achievements and strategies to overcome well known challenges, when applying multiphase boosting:

But also users will have a word again, when presenting their field experience from Canada, Ecuador, and Kazakhstan together with well known specialist consulting to the oil and gas industry in the field of multiphase technology.

Three workshops complete the program. Led by competent industry specialists and moderators, this is an outstanding possibility to enhance your knowledge and participate in profound discussions.
