BUOYANCY MATERIALS FOR OFFSHORE RISER PIPE

The most widely used flotation material is the family of plastic composites called syntactic foams. This paper discusses the factors governing the application of syntactic foams to marine riser at depths now approaching 3,000 feet, and the potential of such materials for extending drilling capability to 6,000 feet and beyond.
