Rodolfo Sancio to Present at Offshore Technology Conference

Rodolfo Sancio (Texas) will make a significant technical contribution to three sessions at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2017 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas on May 1, 2017.

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is where energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters.

OTC is the largest event in the world for the oil and gas industry featuring more than 2,300 exhibitors, and attendees representing 100 countries. Founded in 1969, OTC's flagship conference is held annually in Houston. OTC has expanded and globally with the Arctic Technology Conference, OTC Brasil, OTC Asia, and d5.


Session: Risers: Reducing Uncertainty
Title: DeepStar® Study on Effect of Coupled Horizontal and Vertical Interaction of Steel Catenary Risers with the Seabed within the Touchdown Region
Authors: R. Sancio, Geosyntec Consultants; E.C. Clukey, Jukes Group; D. Lekkakis, Bechtel Corp; C. Aubeny, Texas A&M University
Description: Discussion in this session will include riser topics such as installation and soil/structure interaction.
Date: Monday, May 1, 2017
Time: 9:30-9:52 a.m.
Room: 602
Number: 27637

Session: Risers: Reducing Uncertainty
Title: Hazard Quantification of Seismically Induced Tsunamigenic Subaerial/Submarine Mass Movements
Authors: R. Sancio, Geosyntec Consultants Inc.; P. Rao, Chevron Energy Technology Company; C. Hunt, D. Umberg, Geosyntec Consultants; A. Greene, Geosyntec Consultants, Inc.; S. Misra, Chevron Energy Technology Company
Description: Many recent offshore and subsea developments are located in seismically active areas, yet there are a limited number of design guidelines and codes currently available to address seismic design of offshore facilities. This session will present current state of seismic design practices, as well as, advances in seismic safety for various offshore and subsea facilities.
Date: Monday, May 1, 2017
Time: 11:42-12:04 p.m.
Room: 600

Session: Risers: Recent Advances in Offshore Geotechnics
Title: A Perspective on the State of Knowledge Regarding Soil-Pipe Interaction for SCR Fatigue Assessment
Authors: E.C. Clukey, Jukes Group; A. Zakeri, BP America Inc; C. Aubeny, Texas A&M University; M.F. Randolph, University of Western Australia; P. Sharma, DNV GL Group; D. White, University of Western Australia; R. Sancio, Geosyntec; M. Cerkovnik, 2Hoffshore
Description: In the current environment of cost cutting measures and continued expansion of offshore developments in increasing challenging geologic conditions, significant advances have been made in the recent years in offshore geotechnics particularly in foundation and pipeline design. For example, novel foundation systems, such as hybrid and sliding foundations, to tackle pipeline expansion, innovative pile foundation in notorious carbonate soils, have been designed and successfully installed to name a few. This session would showcase such innovations and current state of art, as well as, best practices.
Date: Monday, May 1, 2017
