SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section
Welcome to the SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section!
The purpose of the Flow Assurance Technical section (FTS) is to further the objectives of SPE in the free discussion of matters relating to flow assurance, to establish consensus on industry best practices, and to promote these practices widely. In other words, we want to provide a forum to help and serve flow assurance and related discipline engineers.
Founded in 2014, FTS has successfully completed its 5th year. On behalf of the 2019 leadership team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the section officers of the past five years. Their dedicated and tireless efforts solidified the foundation for a growing FTS. We are delighted that the membership in FTS has grown steadily to over 2500 members. This remarkable growth inspires us to work harder and to initiate active involvement and communication with the FTS members.
Also, we thank all our volunteers and FTS members who have contributed by sharing ideas and building technical expertise.
We have put together a program of activities for the year that includes monthly lunch & learns / webinars, a joint SPE/AIChE workshop, panel and technical paper sessions in conferences to continue sharing FTS members with the evolution (past, current, and future) of flow assurance research, design, operations, and lookbacks. Our aim is to be truly a global technical section with activities around the globe with support from regional leaders in the discipline.
We strongly encourage everyone with desire and passion, regardless of being a committee member or not, to actively participate in FTS.
We are honored to serve you in 2019.
On behalf of the 2019 leadership team,
Hariprasad J. Subramani
Chairperson, SPE Flow Assurance Technical Section
