High pressure drilling riser

High pressure drilling riser from SRP

Acteon has developed a number of large diameter flange designs for high pressure riser applications, including shallow water jack-up and deepwater dry-tree drilling risers.

A full design, engineer and build service.

All our designs are independently verified to comply with the requirements of API RP 2RD or ISO 13628-7 in terms of material utilisation limits and sealing capacity. Optimised designs are available with enhanced bending capacity and sealing performance in dynamically loaded applications.

Our proprietary flange designs have seen extensive use in the North Sea since 2008 in different drilling risers in applications to 15,000psi working pressure.

Through experience gained in developing and running high-pressure riser systems in the North Sea by product and service line brand Claxton, Acteon can offer several design features for faster running and reliable make-up. Typical features include:

  • Full 3D finite element analysis (FEA)
  • Fatigue qualification testing and FEA correlation
  • Fastener and bolt tensioning designs for easy spidering and faster rig floor handling
  • Internal handling grooves for remotely operated running tool
  • A range of metal sealing options based on industry standard and wellhead bore seals.
