Umbilicals, Cables and Flexible Pipes: Buyer Beware

Umbilicals, Cables and Flexible Pipes: Buyer Beware Overview Since the earliest applications of flexible pipes and umbilicals in the offshore industry, BPP has been engaged in providing operators, contractors and manufacturers with specialist services for flexible pipes, including risers, and for helically armoured and steel tube umbilicals. These have included third party design verification, preparation […]

Standing the Test of Time

Standing the Test of Time Overview The offshore industry has many over used words and phrases, which often camouflage technical complexity and the criticality of form and function. Control umbilicals have been required since the first offshore installation and over the years they have become complex and vital engineered components for offshore production. Ensuring the […]

Scouring the Shallows

Scouring the Shallows Overview The disturbance to water flow patterns caused by seabed installations can result in localised erosion and, if left unchecked, this so-called scouring may threaten the integrity and stability of sub-sea foundations. With environmental concerns bringing ‘green’ energy sources such as tidal, wave and wind power increasingly into the energy mix, there […]

Risk Management: Science or Art?

Risk Management: Science or Art? Overview In one way or another the technical services that BPP offers are in the business of risk management, whether it be the design of an offshore platform that will not collapse for twenty five years, or the risk assessment of a process plant for the probability of an accident […]

Powering Up: The PowerCab JIP

Powering Up: The PowerCab JIP Overview BPP managed the PowerCab Joint Industry Project (JIP) on behalf of the four participating companies: BG Group; BP Exploration; DUCO (Technip) and Shell UK. The PowerCab JIP Work Programme concerns the development of subsea electrical power cable designs with high dynamic loading capacity. The project was carried out in […]

Cable Handling, Laying and Recovery

Cable Handling, Laying and Recovery Overview BPP has developed methodologies and software modules for carrying out cable handling, laying, and recovery analyses. These methodologies are collectively called CHARM. They can be used as an operation planning tool, or as a training facility enabling users to evaluate the effects of parametric changes in operational procedures. The […]

Thermal Assessments

Thermal Assessments Thermal assessments of buried cables and Cable Protection Systems can reduce risk of cable failure. Thermally limited conditions and resultant cable ampacity in a subsea cable can vary by location and configuration depending on the installation, cable design, and environmental conditions. BPP Renewables offers best-in-class modelling capabilities to consider all modes of heat […]

Subsea Cable Engineering

Subsea Cable Engineering Benefit from comprehensive cable local and global analyses in a one-stop shop to get optimum cable performance and quality assurance. BPP Renewables use cable structural analysis tool SoftCoreTM for cable stiffness, strength, internal stresses and strains for all load combinations. Global analyses are conducted using OrcaFlex – the industry standard leading suite […]

Subsea Cable Protection

Subsea Cable Protection Whether these are Cable Protection Systems (CPSs) for mono-pile structures or bend restrictors for floating structures, they are critical for maintaining cable integrity. BPP Renewables has capabilities and experience in comprehensive design and modelling of these components taking into account currents, waves, scour pits, sand abrasion and rock bag movements. These can […]
