DEVELOPING AN OPERATOR-DRIVEN, COST-EFFECTIVE CHEMICAL MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Bryan Arciero, Process Engineer; Murphy E&P Company - USA
An effective chemical management program begins with a decision making strategy based on technical data taking priority over
a lowest-cost-commodity approach. This strategy has been supported with effective data collection and analytics in helping the
operations and engineering team achieve production and OPEX targets and lower overall costs. This presentation will discuss the
strategy that reduced opex significantly while improving chemical-application effectiveness across subsea and topsides applications.
