Steel catenary risers have been implemented on the Auger TLP and are proposed for other developments in the Gulf of Mexico and the Marlim field, offshore Brazil. This riser concept offers a number of benefits for deep water floating production systems which cannot be realised with alternative riser systems. The applicability of steel catenary risers to the harsher West of Shetland environment and use with other vessels is evaluated. Differences in riser arrangements are described and changes to installation procedures and costs are assessed.
