STATS Group has received an Emergency Pipeline Repair System (EPRS) and pre-planned isolation contract from a major LNG operator in the Middle East.
The ten year contract, worth in excess of US$10 million, will see STATS Group design, manufacture and test pipeline isolation and intervention equipment for a range of pipeline sizes from 16 in. to 38 in.
The contract follows the completion of a similar multi-million pound contract on behalf of Qatargas.
The equipment will be stored in Qatar in a state of readiness, for pre-planned and emergency situations, at the client’s offshore gas production facilities located in Qatar’s North Field and onshore LNG plant at Ras Laffan industrial city.
The contract includes the supply of double block and bleed isolation tools including Remote Tecno Plugs™ from 16 in. to 38 in., subsea monitoring and communication systems and 32 in. and 38 in. BISEP™ intervention tools and hot tapping equipment.
The installation of the isolation and intervention tooling suites will provide positive isolation at the required location and a safe environment to carry out quick and effective repair on subsea and onshore pipelines in the event of a damage incident.
