Today, the offshore search for hydrocarbons takes us into water depths we only dreamed of a few years ago. We drill for oil and gas in thousands of feet of water. We drill from floating offshore drilling rigs out where the water is deep. It takes a floating rig to communicate between the water’s surface and the wellhead below. Risers connect the drilling vessel with the wellhead on the ocean floor below. The riser extends the borehole from the floor to the surface. Since risers are so heavy, they would buckle if buoyant risers did not surround them and relieve the stresses on the riser joints. This video presentation covers the procedures yard, boat, and rig crews should follow to properly install, inspect, handle, transport, and run buoyant riser modules attached to riser joints. The video is intended for all personnel involved in handling and running buoyant riser. Produced in cooperation with Transocean. 2000, 27 minutes, video production.
