ABSTRACT
The article announces that the Cambridge University has started a three-year project to enhance modelling methods for ultra-deepwater mooring and riser developments in the oil and gas industry in England. It states that the project will address the difficulties in exploration and production developments face in water deeper than 1,500 meter. Moreover, it is noted that the existing modelling methods for ultra-deepwater construction include the use of computational modelling.
