A development study on the integrated High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Sea Water Intake Riser (SWIR) system for Floating Production Unit (FPU) is described in this paper. An integrated HDPE SWIR system configuration for a gas production semisubmersible operated in the harsh environment has been developed and analyzed through topsides optimization, hydraulic study for a sump tank design and global performance of HDPE pipe. The offshore installation methodology of this integrated HDPE SWIR system with FPU is also discussed and value assessment is presented.
