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 […]

Dynamic Cable Ratings

Dynamic Cable Ratings BPP Renewables use a new class of hybrid analytical finite element methods for fast dynamic-rate analysis of complex seabed and cable protection system geometries. This enables good decision making based on realistic cable electrical loadings. Optimising dynamic cable ratings can significantly reduce cable costs. Let BPP give you the analysis and performance […]
