Research Team UMM-01, Achieving Higher Levels of Standardized Facility Design in the Upstream, Midstream, and Mining Commodity Market
The design of most upstream and midstream projects is customized to the project’s specific requirements. The widespread use of standard designs, while perhaps providing a less “optimal” solution, could result in significant cost and schedule savings that ultimately result in a better business case for the owner.
