We know that in ultra-deepwater, the coupling to the riser system is integral with the platform, and we have the understanding of the system challenges and the tools and experience to offer a complete range of solutions and services.
Aker Solutions has designed and delivered a wide variety of production platform solutions. This provides the experience base for forefront methods in performance prediction, concept development and project execution.
All Aker Solutions concepts are continuously being developed and optimised. Future trends in umbilicals and risers all carry with them greater industry challenges. It is that future and the need for sustained technological development - upon which Aker Solutions is focused.
The requirement for products and systems that will cope with the tougher conditions of deepwater developments will only grow. Our technologies are aimed at addressing those deep water, high pressure conditions. They represent a central part of our capabilities in handling complex projects, in delivering total systems. We’re adaptable in the market place, too, offering stand-alone products and able to work as a team with collaborators to deliver the right results.
Our state-of-the-art deepwater risers are proven and reliable solutions for bringing oil and gas from seabed to surface. They range from metallic catenary risers, hybrid riser towers and top tensioned risers to aluminium risers, titanium risers and composites risers.
Our riser services include research and technology development, early field development studies, overall system design, conceptual design, detailed design and engineering, fabrication and installation.
We provide our customers with a full range of production and drilling riser technology, including associated equipment.
Integrated platform/riser/mooring design and analysis
A recent focus has been on the whole infield system, considering flowlines, risers, production platform and moorings. Aker Solutions together with JIP - DEMO 2000 has develop a new, simple, robust integrated (semi-mooring-riser) soution analysis, maturing the total system through a sound business case, verify the model testing and be ready for use in deep water development projects to come. The integrated approach will extend the use of existing technology to larger deep water depths.
For deepwater developments, the use of flexible riser becomes more and more difficult. An extensive work has during the last decade been preformed to enable the SCR Technology as an alternative to flexible risers.
Robust umbilical technology
Within umbilicals, we offer advanced and robust technology for providing vital links to subsea systems. Aker Solutions is at the forefront of deepwater umbilical technology – our umbilicals have been installed in some the world’s deepest fields.
More than 2 000km of Aker Solutions’ umbilicals have been installed worldwide since 1993. It proves we’ll go a long way to keep our customers happy.
