2H Offshore launches joint industry project

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


2H Offshore has launched of the STREAM (STeel Riser Enhanced Analytics using Measurements) Joint Industry Project (JIP), which will see 2H Offshore work with operators to find efficiencies for the industry.

STREAM aims to provide a measurement-based foundation for steel catenary riser (SCR) modelling to allow for accurate fatigue assessment. SCRs have been widely used in the deep-water offshore industry due to their service reliability. However, field measurements indicate that riser fatigue damage is often over predicted at the critical touch down region, which can lead to higher riser costs for the industry.

Full-scale field data from six deep-water SCR systems has been secured from STREAM JIP participants, including four major operators. 2H will apply its proven riser response data analytics methodology to benchmark design, identify gaps and derive calibrated modeling parameters. The results will benefit the future design and life extension of riser systems.

Himanshu Maheshwari, 2H Offshore Senior Project Manager, said: “The modern subsea market is evolving, with a need for smarter, more efficient solutions. At 2H we are leading these changes by combining our domain expertise with the intelligent use of data.

“Data is critical to bridge the gap between numerical analysis and actual response in the field for deep water SCRs. The STREAM JIP will provide a platform for operators to work together to achieve an industry consensus on optimal design parameters.”

Currently, four major oil and gas operators have agreed to participate in the JIP.
