Trelleborg secures Shah Deniz deal

July 17, 2014

BP has awarded Trelleborg an order for foam buoyancy systems for the second phase development of the Shah Deniz field offshore Azerbaijan.

Trelleborg will supply a buoyancy package filled with its high-temperature syntactic foam.

“There is a growing requirement in deepwater applications for flowlines to perform under high-temperature and high-pressure conditions,” said Lee Roskell, Trelleborg proposal manager. “Large cyclic changes can cause expansion of the flowline, resulting in lateral or upheaval buckling. And at a depth of 600m (1968ft) below surface, these flowlines will come under significant force.”

Trelleborg says its buoyancy modules will assist in mitigating this issue by reducing the self-weight of the flowline and friction against the seabed, a span of lower resistance is established along the flowline, enabling the buckling to occur in known and controlled conditions.
