2H Offshore Secures Chevron Production Riser Programe
2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract by Chevron to manage a production riser weld qualification testing programme.
The company explains that these design pressure and temperature requirements result in line pipe wall thickness requirements as much as 1.9-in. for 8 to 10-in. diameter risers. This is beyond what the industry has already qualified and installed to date for fatigue sensitive deepwater risers, 2H notes.
The scope of the programme will incorporate test pipe specifications, procurement and qualification of new welding and AUT procedures and comprehensive fatigue testing that will include the effects of sour service conditions. In addition, the project scope includes the development of feasible marine riser system configurations for a number of different host vessels.
Nuri Saglar, 2H project manager, said: “We will be pushing the boundaries of current pipe manufacturing and fabrication processes in the programme, and we look forward to supporting Chevron in developing a fit-for-purpose welded riser joint for the next generation of high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) field developments.”
