Subsea 7 brought its unique suite of riser concepts and related subsea infrastructure to life at OTC Houston 2014 – and offered the industry a glimpse into the future of these novel technological solutions.

The company’s solutions for a wide range of specific field characteristics – water depth, environmental conditions, host specification, hydrocarbon composition and client preferences – were displayed in a series of high resolution digital animations on booth 1865 in the Reliant Center.

Speaking about the Subsea 7 riser display at this year’s OTC, VP Technology and Asset Development, Dr Stuart Smith, said the growing demand for increased corrosion resistance, high-pressure capacity requirements and fatigue life is driving the adoption of new materials in risers: “High-strength steels and composite materials such as carbon fibre are now being considered as realistic future technological alternatives to conventional carbon steel. We are actively engaged in developing and qualifying a number of these novel initiatives.

“The continuous development of our riser technology is of great strategic importance in enabling our clients to meet the demands associated with ever-increasing challenges of water depth, corrosion, fatigue and harsh environments.”

“Many years of applied research and construction experience has given Subsea 7 the significant advantage of being a SURF contractor capable of providing all types of riser systems for deepwater and ultra-deepwater installation. Our unique suite of riser and related technologies meet a wide range of specific field characteristics, such as water depth, environmental conditions, host specification, hydrocarbon composition and client preferences.”
