Sea-Water Intake Systems

specifically designed for cooling water systems in the oil industry

FPSO – Floating Production, Storage and Offloading

ContiTech Oil & Gas offers seawater intake and disposal systems for the offshore industry, designed specifically for Floating Production and Storage vessels (i.e. FLNG, FPSO, etc). A seawater intake system provides a means of obtaining low oxygenated water for the cooling, process, utility and/or water injection systems to enhance processing efficiency.

ContiTech has developed a range of seawater intake riser systems that utilize flexible bonded rubber hoses. These are installed when moored offshore from inside the hull of the vessel or external to the vessel’s hull with hook-up device enabling field installation of the equipment without the need to deploy divers or ROVs for location, connection or recovery of the equipment.

Designed for new builds, conversions or retrofits, the seawater intake and disposal systems withstand extreme conditions, are extremely robust and easy to install. In the event a vessel needs to be relocated, the systems are also retrievable within 24hrs.

Each system is designed and custom built in accordance with project specifications and customer requirements and is provided with global static, dynamic and localised analysis of the flexible hose string during installation, operation and in extreme operating conditions.

The range of analysis includes:

  • analysis of flexible hose
  • analysis of static configuration
  • dynamic analysis
