Flexible riser is a key enabler for the oil and gas production in ultra-deep water which transports production fluids between floating production systems and subsea wells. As oil and production heads to water depths in excess of 3000 m, high hydrostatic pressure has been one primary challenge facing the riser operators. Excessive hydrostatic...

Flexible risers are being required to be installed in a water depth of over 3000 m for fewer remaining easy-to-access oil fields nowadays. Their innermost carcass layers are designed for external pressure resistance since the hydrostatic pressure at such a water depth may cause the collapse failure of flexible risers. Determining a critical...
