The Journey of the Vito Deep-Water Development

Tuesday, 2 May
Technical / Poster Session
The Vito project, in the US Gulf of Mexico, was designed to develop deep-water resources competitively through simplified design, collaboration with suppliers, and leveraging industry practices. This session tells the improvement story across multiple disciplines from drilling and SURF through host and export. The importance of minimal technical scoping and integration across the contract partner landscape will be highlighted.
