The idea for this review of the technology for developing marginal offshore oilfields arose out of a report which we were commissioned to undertake for the Irish Department of Energy in October 1984. The Department were looking for information on the different options for developing small oil accumulations in the exposed Irish offshore area, what systems were currently available, what new developments were likely in the next decade and the approximate cost of developing various sizes of reservoir using these systems. While compiling the report we discovered that, while all the literature and industry spokesmen agreed on the importance of marginal field technology, there was no publication which addressed the topic in any comprehensive fashion, with the possible exception of studies costing several thousands of dollars or confidential oil company inhouse reports. This review aims to cover this very broad topic in a way which is intelligible to a general technical reader. It is not possible to cover detailed design aspects of the various systems described here in a book of this size. References and a bibliography covering the topics discussed in each chapter are provided for those interested in pursuing the various subjects in more detail.
