Atteris Shares Riser Expertise

Last week, Atteris’ lead engineer Celine Lanoelle shared her knowledge on Dynamic Riser Analysis at the Society for Underwater Technology’s Evening Technical Meeting (ETM). Celine’s breadth and depth of knowledge on the variety of riser types (flexible risers, top tension risers and steel catenary risers), has been gained through her extensive international experience.

As well as explaining the complexities of Dynamic Riser Analysis, failure modes, and common mistakes, Celine also shared why a comprehensive analysis is of personal value to her – to mitigate the potential for environmental risk and loss of human life. These values were shared by everyone in the audience and were a timely reminder that there is much more at stake than simply “crunching the numbers”.

Over 150 people braved a chilly winter’s night to listen to Celine speak, alongside Carolyn Thain from Woodside who spoke about the Greater Enfield Development and Emily Carmichael from DOF who presented a novel solution to retrofitting mooring chains.

Atteris was proud to co-sponsor the evening together with Woodside, DOF Subsea and the Women in Subsea Engineering (WISE) network that was founded by Allison Selman, who is part of the Atteris leadership team. Contributing to positively improve and build the subsea industry and community is an essential part of the Atteris business.

After the presentation, Celine joined an elite panel of senior female professionals from the industry in the WISE careers session. Twenty five students from UWA, Curtin, ECU and Murdoch were invited to connect with the subsea industry and ask the panellists questions about their career pathways.

Atteris received great feedback on both sessions from the attendees and participants. We are proud and fortunate to have Celine as part of our team.
