LANCASHIRE, UK — CRP Subsea has recently been awarded several deepwater contracts to provide distributed buoyancy modules offshore Brazil.
CRP Subsea’s distributed buoyancy modules will be used to reduce top tension by maintaining a lazy wave configuration of the pipeline, thus reducing the risk of pipeline failure and increasing the lifetime of the field. CRP Subsea’s internal clamp technology is designed to ensure risk-free installation and operation for deepwater flexible riser operations.
Manufactured at CRP Subsea’s facility in the northwest of England, delivery has already commenced, with completion due later this year.
Distributed buoyancy modules are typically used between structures and a surface vessel or platform, providing uplift generated by a two-part buoyancy element and a clamp. CRP Subsea’s clamping tool allows these modules to be securely attached at any point along the length of a rigid or flexible pipeline or cable.
