Aquaterra Energy’s riser analysis team have extensive experience in delivering jack-up high-pressure riser analysis projects and working closely with our in-house teams of design and project engineers, to ensure findings are not only used but understood and implemented within designs and products.
Assessing the Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV) evaluates the likelihood of VIV lock-on and whether VIV suppression devices and/or whether a VIV fatigue assessment is required.
Analysis of the operating envelope will determine the conditions under which the high-pressure riser, connectors and surface equipment connections/flanges are acceptable.
Undertaking wave induced fatigue analysis can provide an estimate of the conductor fatigue damage from repeated wave loading. The damage from wave-induced fatigue is combined with damage from driving fatigue, to calculate the lifetime of the well.
