LANCASTER, UK First Subsea has completed installing bend stiffener connections for gas lift and production risers, power cables, and umbilicals at the Goliat FPSO in the Norwegian Barents Sea.

The Goliat FPSO features 11 Type II bend stiffener connections now and a further 10 receptacle I-tubes pre-installed within the base of the vessel to enable tiebacks as production increases.

First Subsea said its Type II BSC comprises a ball and taper connector attached to a bend stiffener, which is pulled into a pre-machined I-tube. The connector is self-energizing and self-aligning, and features First Subsea’s Automatic Release Clamp enabling both diverless and ROVless bend stiffener connections.
