Novel well completion technique is used to ensure dual tubing performed under fatigue condition in Field B TLP. Based on initial tubing stress analyses, the dual strings are under compression during production. Also due to the Single Combo Top Tension Riser (SCTTR) design, first in the industry, the riser must be isolated from hydrocarbon flow. All 10 producers completed to date were tensioned successfully using this technique. This paper discusses various methods of string tensioning and executing the completion.
