Presentation starts at: 9:40am

Presentation title:



This session will focus on the large volumes in UKCS undeveloped fields and what will take to capture this opportunity. Development economics vary significantly depending on resource type, field size, and access to infrastructure, but the industry has shown that these projects can be made commercially attractive through development efficiencies, innovative technical solutions and commercial collaboration.
