Revolutionizing Deepwater Drilling Riser Buoyancy

increase the overall hydrodynamic diameter of drill riser buoyancy modules and therefore VIV suppression comes without the undesirable penalty of increased in-line drag.    Obtainable VIV mitigation properties of the inverted tri-helical buoyancy design with the elimination of required auxiliary equipment simplifies and increases the running and retrieval times of the riser compared to traditional suppression technology. Numerous locations across the globe are subject to the sudden onset of onerous weather, requiring drilling vessels to be able to respond quickly in order to transit out of
