Ultra-Deepwater Met-Ocean TAC Quarterly Meeting

RPSEA's Ultra-Deepwater Technical Advisory Committees (TAC) focus on a particular ultra-deepwater technology area. The role of the TACs, with representation from subject matter experts who study and apply ultra-deepwater technologies in real field situations, is to identify current technology gaps and define the specific R&D efforts needed to address these gaps. As such, the TACs provide a bottom-up, end-user-driven program.  There are a total of nine UDW TACs.  The UDW TACs are open to the public.

The Met-Ocean TAC's goal is to improve knowledge and modeling capabilities of the GOM circulation, which will provide more accurate facility design criteria and reduce downtime during deepwater drilling operations.  Focus is the effects of changing weather patterns on hurricane severity, operational 3-D current forecast modeling capable of simulating the loop/eddies, and modeling for strong near-bottom currents.
