New Products for Offshore Oil & Gas
DeepWater Buoyancy has announced a range of new products to service the Offshore Oil & gas market:
- Jumper Buoyancy modules are fabricated with either a rotationally-moulded polyethylene shell or with a GRP skin. In all cases, high-performance DeepTec® syntactic foam provides buoyancy. An integral elastomeric clamp acts as the interface to the pipe and resists axial and torsional loads.
- Umbilical Buoyancy provides distributed buoyancy for platform-to-seafloor umbilical applications. Available with either an integral or secondary clamp, these modules can be custom to fit any umbilical of any size or configuration. Umbilical Ballast modules are also available to assist in the creation of the proper umbilical arrangement.
- Pipeline Buckle Mitigation Buoyancy modules are clamped onto the pipeline to control the formation of the lateral buckles and alleviate stress. These modules decrease the lateral friction from the buckle by both reducing the weight of the buckling sections and by providing a protective shell.
