You may consider the following jumper analysis in your study.

  • ROV loads
  • Flowline loads
  • Running tools
  • Mis-alignments loads
  • Subsidence loads
  • Piping loads (due to temperature, pressure, flowline expansion, etc.)
  • Thermal performance (if applicable)
  • Erosion/Corrosion (an erosion study should be performed to determine erosion allowances)
  • Handling during fabrication, assembly and testing
  • Load-out and sea-fastening onto transport vessel
  • Transport to site
  • Installation (lift, lowering, landing, etc.)
  • Dropped objects
