CRP Subsea Chosen for Ultra-Deepwater Oil Field Development in the Gulf of Mexico
CRP Subsea has been awarded a sizable contract from a major engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) company. The contract entails the provision of vortex induced vibration (VIV) suppression strakes and buoyancy modules for an ultra-deepwater oil field development, located in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore US.
For this project, CRP Subsea will supply over five kilometers of Tri-Strakes® Lite, to provide VIV suppression to three steel catenary risers (SCRs) and two flowline jumpers. Anti-fouling will be applied to the Tri-Strakes for use on specified sections of the risers to prevent marine growth. Each segment of the Tri-Strakes Lite system is designed as a single, lightweight component, facilitating swift and straightforward pipe reel lay installation offshore. The system's design allows for efficient stacking during shipping, optimizing space utilization on the vessel.
CRP Subsea’s innovative integral buoyancy modules will also be attached to the flowline jumpers. These modules will provide controlled buoyancy, reducing the bending moment on the structure. In addition, using an integral compliant clamping technology ensures a uniform clamping pressure, eliminating risk of damage to the flowline jumper.
Jaimin Parmar, Sales Engineer at CRP Subsea, states: “We are thrilled to secure this contract, it is a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence. The acknowledgment of both our Tri-Strakes Lite and integral buoyancy modules underlines our dedication to delivering comprehensive and innovative subsea solutions. This success not only validates our technical expertise but also reinforces our position as a trusted and reliable partner.”
The Tri-Strakes and integral buoyancy modules will be designed and manufactured and coated at CRP Subsea’s production facility in the Northwest of England. Project engineering works will begin imminently, with completion and delivery expected in the second half of this year.
