The Impact of Composites on Future Deepwater Riser Configurations – Tom Brown, Senior Engineer, Woking

28th September 2017   ⋅  Conferencing @ Christchurch, Woking 

In recent years the industry has begun to investigate the use of thermoplastic composite pipe for offshore applications, however, the technology is still in its infancy. Low-risk applications of the technology, such as flowlines and intervention lines, have already been realised, however, more demanding applications are still a while off. The lecture will present an assessment of the potential application of thermoplastic composite pipe in a deepwater riser application, focusing on the advantages these bring when compared to conventional steel or flexible risers.
