Deepwater Oil Production Technology

The objective of the cooperation between Coppe/UFRJ and China University of Petroleum (CUP) is to encourage academic interchange among their doctorate students and researchers in the areas related to subsea technology and floating systems.

The ongoing research projects are focused on:
- Subsea pipelines and risers for deepwater;
- Dynamic behavior of floating systems;
- Safety and environmental protection in offshore operations.

The project is also aimed at including Brazilian and Chinese oil companies and suppliers in a joint effort for the development of technology for deepwater applications.
