Tenvig Offshore's Early
Oil Production Ship (continued from page 39) pool will allow for the required riser angles.
Turret mooring has been used successfully by several drillships for a number of years by The
Offshore Company. The turret- moored drillship Discoverer 534 has drilled in water depths rang- ing from 130 to 3,500 feet.
The mooring system permits a moored vessel to alter its head- ing to meet changing sea and weather conditions. Vessel head- ings may be readily changed to minimize motion during well op- erations to provide protective shelter for offloading supply boats or to reduce mooring loads during a storm.
The riser and subsea systems were developed by A S Kongs- berg Vapenfabrikk, who in turn collaborated with Cameron Iron
Works on oil tool equipment.
Kongsberg has provided arrange- ment, calculations and designs for: riser tensioning and han- dling system; riser body including the riser lower package with uni- versal joint and riser stab-in sec- tion, including isolating valves package, and riser base including retrievable flowline box with tie- in points and valve-less water in- jection and service header mani- folds.
Kongsberg has tailormade the arrangement to the BT Turret
Production Platform to avoid in- terface problems. Also, the riser handling procedures have been given special attention in order to increase the overall system regularity.
The three systems described above are patented. Full details of these three systems may be obtained through Tenvig Offshore
