The work will build on existing knowledge and guidelines to achieve an industry accepted standard

The Joint Industry Project (JIP), led by DNV GL, began in October and will take a year to complete.

“Our involvement in this JIP underlines our commitment to supporting the use of composite materials within the offshore industry,” said Tim Eyles, managing director, 2H Offshore.

“Composite pipes have many advantages. Their good fatigue performance and reduced cross-sectional weight may help to overcome technical challenges in the industry, especially in deeper water and harsh environments. 2H has experience in using composite materials in risers and is committed to using emerging technologies to find the best technical solutions to meet the needs of our clients.”

2H teams in London, UK, and Houston, US, are actively involved in the JIP. The work will build on existing knowledge and guidelines to achieve an industry accepted standard.
