A facility and a method for connecting a bottom submarine pipe (14) and a riser submarine pipe. The riser submarine pipe has an upstream end (62) with a fitting (66) on the end thereof, while the bottom submarine pipe (14) has a downstream end (46) provided with a connecting end piece (50). The method includes the following steps: a) an anchoring support (38) is supplied; b) the upstream end (62) and the downstream end (46) are held, while the fitting (66) extends facing the connecting end piece (50); and c) the fitting (66) and the connecting end piece (50) are brought towards each other for connection. The fitting (66) of the upstream end (62) is held still in relation to the anchoring support (38), and the connecting end piece (50) is moved towards the fitting (66).


The clamping device (18) comprises at least four clamping components (30A to 30C) and connecting elements (32) comprising, for each clamping component (30A to 30C) at least one elastic tightening member (76) connecting a supporting member (40) of the clamping component (30A to 30C) with a supporting member (40) of a first adjacent clamping component (30A to 30C) and at least one elastic tightening member (78) connecting the supporting member (40) with a supporting member (40) of a second adjacent clamping component (30A to 30C). Each elastic tightening member (76, 78) comprises an elongated part and two end stops, each end stop cooperating respectively with a supporting surface (40), each elastic tightening member (76, 78) being longer than the transverse extent of a central lumen defined by the clamping components (30A to 30C), and protruding beyond the supporting members (40) connected by the elastic tightening member (76, 78).

In ADREM, leading industries and university groups in process intensification, catalytic reactor engineering and process control team up to address the domain of resource- and energy-efficient valorisation of variable methane feedstocks to C2\ hydrocarbons. The development of new and intensified adaptable catalytic reactor systems for flexible and decentralized production at high process performance is in focus, able to operate with changing feedstock composition and deliver on-demand the required product distribution by switching selected operational/control parameters and/or changing modular catalyst cartridges. In the long term, we expect the reactors to operate energy- and emission-lean using green electricity as the direct, primary energy source. In order to converge to the optimal design, the project will utilize the unique integral, four-domain process intensification (PI) methodology, pioneered by the consortium. This is the only approach able to deliver a fully intensified equipment/process. The key feature is the systematic, simultaneous addressing of the four domains: spatial, thermodynamic, functional and temporal. ADREM will provide: highly innovative, economic and environmentally friendly processes and equipment for efficient transformation of methane into useful chemicals and liquid fuels, for which monetary savings of more than 10% are expected. process technologies applying flexible modular one-step process with high selectivity for valorisation of methane from various sources. modular (and containerized and mobile) reactors permitting flexible adaptation of the plant size to demand and also utilizing smaller or temporary sources of methane or other feeds. The project will employ emerging reactor technologies coupled to especially designed catalytic systems to address a variety of scenarios embodying methane valorisation. The concepts developed can be later readily extrapolated on other types of catalytic processes of similar sizes.

The objective of the project IMPROOF is to drastically improve the energy efficiency of steam cracking furnaces by at least 20%, in a cost effective way, while simultaneously reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses and NOx per ton ethylene produced by at least 25%. One important way to reduce the energy input in steam cracking furnaces is to reduce coke formation on the reactor wall. The use of either advanced coil materials, combined with 3D reactor designs, improved process control, and more uniform heat transfer will increase run lengths, reducing simultaneously CO2 emissions and the lifetime of the furnaces. Biogas and bio-oil will be used as alternative fuels because they are considered renewable, and hence, decrease net CO2 production. Application of high emissivity coatings on the external surface of the radiant coils will further substantially improve the energy consumption. Less firing is required to reach the same process temperatures in the radiant coils. This will reduce fuel gas consumption and CO2 emissions by 10 to 15%. IMPROOF will demonstrate the advantage of combining all these technological innovations with an anticipated increase of the time on stream with a factor 3. To select the correct technologies for sustainable implementation in complex plant-wide and industrial data-intensive process systems, all the technology will be implanted in real-plant conditions at TRL6 in DOW. The strongly industrial oriented consortium is composed of 7 industrial partners, including 2 SME completed by 2 RTO and 2 university. This partnership shows a clear and strong path to the industrial and economical world with the involvement of all actors of the furnaces business. The financial resources mobilized by the partners represent a total grant of 6 878 401,25 with a global effort of 538 person.month.

Technip | Date: 2015-07-20

The present disclosure provides a system and method of monitoring a mooring system for a floating vessel using the time of the natural period independent of environmental conditions. The natural period can be calculated and/or established experientially over time by measuring movement of the vessel to establish the natural period at given geographical positions of a secure and intact mooring system. The natural period can be monitored based on the time to complete a natural period. A change in a mooring line stiffness, whether by a failure, stretching, a degradation of the mooring line integrity, or a significant displacement of the anchoring point, will be translated into a different natural period with a different time. By monitoring the natural period for a given geographical position (and corresponding heading) to be compared to the theoretical values (and/or previous recorded values) it is then possible to assess that at least a portion of the mooring system has failed or that a significant damage has occurred.
