Bergen: Connector Subsea Solutions and Hydratight have repaired a pipeline at 830m using ROV. The new method utilizing an effective Coating Removal Tool and a ROV Clamp can increase the lifespan for subsea installations world wide.
"We are very pleased with the effective and successful operation offshore Australia", says Pål Magne Hisdal, Chairman of Connector Subsea Solutions.
New clamp developed
The Norwegian deep water engineering company has developed a new clamp. The whole operation – including removal of coating from the pipe and installation of the clamp – was done with ROV.
"Operation friendly design of the clamp and the tooling involved combined with the competence from our staff in Connector Subsea Solutions ensured effectiveness during the critical installation phase at the Australian seabed", says Pål Magne Hisdal.
Reduced Risk for Oil Operators
Oil operators have in many cases been unable to execute effective pipeline repair at deep and ultradeep waters due to lack of available methods and technology. The operational risk of these operations have typically been high resulting in a reluctance to execute pipeline repair operations with ROVs. This is now changing due to availability of new methods, solutions and technology.
"By providing effective solutions and products we see that pipeline operator’s risk is reduced in deep water repair operations. We see a growing trend of utilizing new methods of pipeline repair and therefore we expect a growing demand for our products and solutions", says Pål Magne Hisdal.
