HOUSTON– LORD Corp. has won an OTC Spotlight Award for the 10K completion workover riser flexible joint.

This high-pressure joint accommodates the motion of the vessel up to a 10-degree cocking angle. The flexible joint offers a dual-bearing design, where each bearing is comprised of multiple layers of elastomer bonded to spherical reinforcements.

The flexible joint allows smaller vessels to operate a top-tensioned riser without a stress joint or telescopic joint, enabling lower cost high-pressure interventions.

It offers a 10,000-psi operating pressure with a 15,000 psi hydrotest and can be rated up to a temperature of 350°F (177°C).

LORD Corp. is exhibiting at booth #2070.
