This objective of this project is to develop, qualify, and field-deploy flexible fiber reinforced pipe (FFRP) for ultra-deepwater applications in the Gulf of Mexico. FFRP is unbonded flexible pipe with composite reinforcement layers which have the advantages of light weight, high flexibility and corrosion resistance. Due to these advantages, a simple, low top tension riser configuration is enabled. The initial design basis, to be confirmed during Phase 1, is a 7-inch ID, 10,000 psi design pressure, 120°C design temperature, 3,000 meter design water depth production riser application.
