Subsea Umbilicals Risers & Flowlines
During the last few years, offshore oil extraction activity has been constantly increasing. New platforms are being continuously installed in different parts of the world and operate in deeper and deeper waters. The safe and efficient interconnection from the topside platforms and vessels to the well heads and pumps on the seafloor is necessary to transfer power and data, as well as hydraulic and other fluids to guarantee reliable oil extraction operations.
The local generation of electric power and the subsequent distribution to various appliances achieves lower generation costs. In addition broadband communication systems are now an essential feature of the most modern communication and process control systems. Subsea Umbilicals, Raisers and Flowlines form this vital link among the various centres of operation. They must be able to withstand high mechanical and chemical stresses, high operating temperatures and pressures in order to ensure the continuous and reliable supply of services in the harsh environments below the sea.
Umbilicals offer a full range of solutions, which thanks to innovative designs, materials and state-of-the-art processes meet all of the demanding requirements of such applications. Umbilicals offer oil companies, contractors, engineers, installers and component manufacturers the following major benefits.
