A specialist subset to our core business, directional driving is a solution developed to mitigate conductor collision risk on multi-slot platforms.
CIS understands that off-course conductor tracking leading to collision into adjacent wells and/or platform jacket infrastructure must be avoided at all costs. Directional driving is a proven technique requiring no modifications to the existing infrastructure and/or guides. In conjunction with a CIS directional drive shoe, a specified heading (azimuth) and specialist installation techniques, the conductor string is safely driven and steered away from collision obstacles en route to the intended target setting depth.
CIS offers a suite of engineering analysis though our sister company 2H Offshore to determine conductor associated loadings during installation as well as its long-term production life including:
- Conductor Bending Stress
- Driving Fatigue Analysis
- In-Place Strength and Stability
- In-Place VIV Fatigue
- In-Place Wave Fatigue analysis
