    • Performance analysis for subsea blind shear ram preventers subject to testing strategies 

      Wu, Shengnan; Zhang, Laibin; Barros, Anne; Zheng, Wenpei; Liu, Yiliu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In a subsea blowout preventer system, a subsea blind shear ram preventer (BSRP) plays as a crucial safety barrier by cutting off the drill pipe and sealing the wellhead to prevent serious accidents. Testing and repairs of ...
    • Reliability assessment for final elements of SISs with time dependent failures 

      Wu, Shengnan; Zhang, Laibin; Lundteigen, Mary Ann; Liu, Yiliu; Zheng, Wenpei (Journal article, 2018)
      Reliability assessment for safety-instrumented systems (SISs) plays a vital role in improving the design of SISs. Traditional methods for SIS reliability assessment that assume constant failure rates are, however, not ...
    • Reliability assessment for subsea HIPPS valves with partial stroke testing 

      Wu, Shengnan; Zhang, Laibin; Liu, S; Liu, Yiliu; Barros, Anne Cecile Pénélope; Lundteigen, Mary Ann (Chapter, 2017)
      High integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) have been applied in subsea applications to prevent accidents due to over-pressurization. A subsea HIPPS can be regarded as a complete functional loop consisting of sensors, ...
    • Reliability modeling of subsea SISs partial testing subject to delayed restoration 

      Wu, Shengnan; Zhang, Laibin; Zheng, Wenpei; Liu, Yiliu; Lundteigen, Mary Ann (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Subsea oil and gas production has always involved the challenging task of determining the overall reliability of safeguarding systems, such as safety instrumented systems (SISs). Partial testing and delayed restoration of ...
