Why UMSIRE?
The problem
 One trend that has emerged in recent years in the design of umbilical
systems is the progressive increase of the size and weight of end
terminations
 Driven by the need to integrate functions normally found on manifolds,
this emerging trend poses extremely severe challenges to installers and
appears to be compounded by the differing requirements of parties in the
supply chain (FEED contractors, termination designers, operators and
manufacturers)

Why UMSIRE?
The consequences
 COST
 Oversize terminations often
require a bespoke solution leading
to “re-inventing the wheel”
syndrome
 Carousels may have to be
deployed instead of reels
 TIME

Increase in lead time
Longer fabrication and assembly
Increase in vessel time
Installation vessel availability
 RISK
 Together with terminations, bend
stiffeners and bend restrictors
have grown in size and weight
 Lack of clear definition of
acceptable level of risk resulting in
over-engineering
 UTAs are not properly designed for
lifting and over-boarding
 RELIABILITY
 Long term reliability of the
umbilical system can be
jeopardised
Why UMSIRE?
The solution
 Following an Umbilical Manufacturers’ Federation initiative, several major
umbilical installation contractors (Acergy, Saipem, Subsea7 andTechnip)
and OTM Consulting collaborated towards the launch of a JIP for the
development of a RP
 The document would address the need to standardise the shape of
umbilical terminations and identify guidelines for their size and weight
 UMSIRE JIP objective: to reduce the size of umbilical terminations
through increased understanding of the key issues associated to their
design, manufacturing and installation and the development of a RP

Progress to date
 Carried out 2 surveys mapping
UTA’s functionalities to their size
to identify correlations
 Using a different approach to
identify a “baseline” system taking
as reference the constraints
imposed by closed tensioner
systems
