About Wellstream International Ltd
Wellstream's vision is to provide "innovative pipe solutions for tomorrow's energy production". They achieve this through a comprehensive portfolio of pipeline products, established dynamic flexible risers and static flowlines for deep and ultra-deepwater environments, FlexSteel™ for use in onshore applications and high temperature/high pressure products for drilling and service applications.
The ocean’s harsh weather and constant movement make pipeline breaks a constant concern that can cost offshore oil operations up to $1 million per day in lost revenues. Wellstream required SOLIDWORKS to design customised pipelines flexible enough to roll with waves and currents, yet strong enough to contain thousands of gallons of oil and gas, pumped at high pressures.
Engineers at Wellstream use SOLIDWORKS to specially adapt pipeline supporting structures to customer’s specific needs, then simulate how the structure will perform once its deployed.
