A study has been undertaken to enable evaluation of wellhead protection concepts for subsea marginal developments located on the Grand Banks (Newfoundland, Canada). The study has focused mainly on concepts that maintain the probability of well blowout as a result of freely floating and scouring icebergs below accepted levels of risk. The investigation provides a framework from which intelligent decisions can be made regarding the relative benefits and costs of different protection concepts.
