Abstract

Due to the increasing energy demand, there is need for a more sustainable conduit for producing and transporting fluids in the oil and gas industry. This is also in response to the increase in exploration activities in offshore deep water, from shallow waters to deep waters. Thus, more length of marine risers and subsea pipelines are required, which increases the weight of the offshore structure. The properties of composites will be harnessed to help reduce the weight of the marine risers. This necessitated the need for the development of composite risers, the studies of the mechanics and hydrodynamics of composite risers. The study shows that composite risers can be applied on offshore structures however, it works most successfully when used as a hybrid composite riser system, and when used as a top tension composite riser system.
