The West Oil Tools riser is designed to be tied into the compensated slip joint. The Slip Joint can be lifted and installed as a regular drilling riser slip joint. It is designed to be landed out in a standard rotary table. The design has a redundancy with two separate and independent systems, one active mode for landing and disconnect, and one passive mode for well operations. The compensation package has got four times the capacity needed to serve the riser system under a sea condition with 6 meter vessel heave and an internal riser pressure of 10,000 psi.
