Identify any issues and limitations, determine their consequences and recommend mitigation strategies to reduce potential risks. This work will include high-level process and materials selection reviews for both topsides and subsea components, evaluation of risers and flowlines for corrosion management, CAPEX control, review of the chemical injection requirements, high level subsurface review and a system review for water availability, deliverability and uptime.
