LORD® Flexible Joints can be deployed with Intervention Workover Control Systems (IWOCS) and the associated riser system to accommodate the motion of the intervention / workover vessel relative to the subsea wellhead. A flexible joint can replace a stress joint in this application, supporting the tension in the riser and containing pressure, yet offering a much lower bending stiffness. When used to replace a traditional bottom stress joint, the significantly lower moment imparted to the wellhead allows the operator to perform more workovers per well, thereby extending the life of the field.
