Marine Drilling Riser Exercise

A marine drilling riser is filled with heavy mud with SG = 2 and latched
to a wellhead in 1000 m water depth.

Given; SG inside= 2, SG outside= 1, Se=20 dm2, Si=18 dm2, SG steel = 8


and disregarding weight of the LMRP:

1) What is the required top tension to keep bottom end effective


tension at zero?

2) Draft effective tension as a function of depth.

3) Closing the LMRP bag preventer; is there any change to the


tension readings?

4) If yes, present a new graph of effective tension as a function of


depth.

5) With the bag preventer closed, disengaging the connector and


hanging off; is there any change to the tension readings?

6) If yes, present a new graph of effective tension as a function of


depth.
