Marine and offshore risers and other structures require special cable dynamics to ensure the safe operation of structures out in open water. Stewart Technology Associates takes into account these structures and the issues cables experience as they come up with unique mooring solutions for companies in the gas and oil industry.
Cables are placed on floating and submerged structures to keep them steady so that company operations can proceed with the extraction and processing of resources can proceed. They may also be used for communications and power operations. Structures such as jack-ups and risers are actually situated on a movable surfaces, as the ocean tides, waves and currents constantly affect the stability of the structure and all equipment running from that structure into the watery depths. Seakeeping analysis must be performed to address the type of pressure and stress the cables will experience during calm seas as well as turbulent ocean waves caused from destructive storms to ensure the structures will not collapse or cause injuries to workers on floating platforms.
In addition, catenary mooring cables are analyzed in relation to the drag and seabed friction to prevent failure that can effect marine and offshore structures. By analyzing how the tide and current of the ocean influences the cables used on these structures, companies can ensure they are developing the proper technology solutions to prevent present and future problems.
Stewart Technology Associates uses the most state-of-the-art technology when evaluating cable dynamics for oil and gas industries to develop diagrams and plans for floating and submerged structures. This consultant organization utilizes OrcaFlex software, one of the premier dynamic analysis software applications available that is used by over 170 organizations around the world. This software helps Stewart Technology Associates create technology diagrams and computer animations in regards to the correct placement of cable whether it is power cables, communication cables or cables used for mooring purposes.
