Kvaerner reports testing on new CompRiser joint for Heidrun platform

Sep 13, 2001 02:00 AM

Kvaerner reports that testing has been conducted on a ground-breaking composite riser at Statoil's Heidrun TLP platform in the Norwegian Sea. The 'CompRiser' joint is designed for deep-water operations, and is set to replace 22-inch titanium riser joint in the drilling string at the Heidrun TLP.

Composite risers are to be applied for both drilling and production needs. Constructed with carbon fibres and epoxy resin, the unit is about half the weight of a steel riser. After the first test drilling cycle on a well on Heidrun, the CompRiser was thoroughly inspected and pressure tested by DNV. Further operational testing is to be carried out on the joint.
