English term or phrase:discoveries
В таком контексте. похоже на месторождения (открытые):
Subsea wellheads connected to gathering stations that are then tied back to a surface platform can be an economical field development option. But as water depths increase, the energy needed to lift the well stream from the ocean floor to the surface platform also increases.
Minimizing the number of gathering stations lowers development cost, but it also increases the length of flow lines. And a longer tieback to the surface platform is often the only way to make smaller DISCOVERIES viable.
