Subco Kristen 3
To the right we see the side of the large ROV sat astride the pulling tool on top of the flowlines as they enter the wellhead. The semi submersible production platform "Kristen" is at the top of the picture with all the flowline supplying oil from the numerous wells surrounding it. Each flowline passes ove a set of floats forming a break in the catenery between the sea bed and the platform. This arrangement cancels out any direct snatch between the platform and the flowlines as they leave the sea bed, essencial as the semi submersible on the surface is subject to waves.
