A multiline marine production riser and floating production, storage, and terminal facility may be required for economic development of oil and gas reserves in remote, deep water locations. A deep water production riser design has evolved through study, analyses, and model testing. In order to gain experience, development confidence, and improve the riser design prior to commercial application, a prototype has been built for testing as part of Exxon’s Submerged Production System offshore test in the Gulf of Mexico. This paper treats the design, manufacture, and installation of the prototype multiline marine production riser system.
