These conference proceedings highlight the importance of fluid machinery performance which is critical for the transport of liquids and gases during extraction and processing of hydrocarbon products. Recent innovations in fluid machinery can be applied to achieve optimum availability and increased efficiency. Advances in exploitation and process technology have led to increased pressure and temperature challenges for fluid machinery and designers must address the stringent limits on the weight and volume of production equipment. This congress showcases the latest technology and provides a forum for sharing valuable design and operating experiences.
