We can assist with key tender documentation, including:
Our client required engineering support to confirm that the FPSO mooring hook-up analysis had correctly identified the principal risks for the pre-installed wet stored flexible riser system. The field development included:
The FPSO was permanently turret-moored above these with a 3×4 mooring.
Flexlife completed a scope of work, which included:
Flexlife was approached to design, fabricate and supply a riser system which included a flexible pipe, J-tube and associated clamps, for an existing field tieback in the East Irish Sea. The design had to take into account shallow water dynamic field infrastructure, ageing assets, a lack of survey data and restricted topside access.
We delivered a bespoke design within six weeks of commencing the project. A full integration analysis, flexible pipe global and fatigue analysis took placeand the systems were delivered in accordance with vessel schedules. The time from initial concept to installation was less than four months.
