Presentation title:

Faster Umbilical Recovery Minimises Production Disruption


Failure of a control umbilical or cable can quickly erode a field’s profitability. Traditional methods of recovering umbilicals for repair or replacement have been laborious, time consuming and expensive.
This paper reviews the challenges of umbilical recovery and reports on recent developments in technology offering a quicker and safer method of retrieval and improved umbilical handling.
