Conductor Supported Wellhead Platforms
Conductor Supported Wellhead Platforms simply use the structural strength of the well conductors to support the platform topsides and process equipment.
The system typically uses the three or four well conductors as structural supports but also allows for more internal or external conductors with single, double or triple splitter wellheads used to maximise well count and minimise waveloading.
Conductor Supported Platforms are ideally suited to shallow water applications up to 40m, however some designs in the marketplace are very prone to fatigue problems and installation difficulties.
