Petrobras concluded a 7.5-year study in May 2013 on subsea BOP installations in ultra-deepwaters to determine if a correlation existed between time to install a subsea BOP and water depth. In this exclusive video, Kazuo Miura, a consultant for Petrobras, discusses how there is room for step-by-step procedure improvements in subsea installations to save time. Mr Miura shared the study last week at the 2014 IADC International Deepwater Drilling Conference in Rio de Janeiro.
