Riser Management Systems

BPP-TECH’s Riser Management Systems (BPP-RMS) improve safety and efficiency for drilling and intervention risers. These systems are becoming standard for new-build drilling vessels, and will likely become mandatory for all deep water drilling in the future. 


BPP-RMS enables the operator to:

  • Carry out comprehensive real-time riser stress analysis
  • Assess condition of drilling and intervention risers
  • Take informed actions to improve operability, safety, and riser life
  • Undertake operations in uncertain environments, e.g. loop and eddy currents
  • Monitor the system during deployment and operations
  • Track fatigue and manage joints
  • Monitor transit performance of suspended risers

BPP-RMS is available as an integrated package for direct installation on a new build. It can also be configured for retrofitting on existing vessels.
