OFFSHORE RISERS MUST BE DESIGNED TO RESIST PIPELINE MOVEMENT

Design methods are available to counter effects of pipeline movement on subsea riser systems. Their application depends on environmental conditions, platform structure/constraints, in-service conditions, pipeline approach to the platform, and economics. Factors for selecting among the methods are discussed here. A hypothetical project, a 24-inch OD pipeline, is presented as an example.
