B11 By-Pass

The Norpipe gas pipeline designated P2028N is a 36" natural gas pipeline which transports gas from the Ekofisk Area , Draupner and Valhall Fields to Norsea Gas Terminal at Emden in Germany. Norpipe and the Emden Plant have been in operation since 1977 exporting gas from Ekofisk and other Norwegian fields to continental Europe. The pipeline and receiving terminal are operated by Gassco

Hyperbaric Welding Systems -Introduction

Subsea7 own and operate 3, Hyperbaric Welding Systems. Each system consists of a Habitat, services umbilicals, welding umbilical, hydraulic umbilicals hydraulic power units, hot water machines, containerised Habitat/Weld Control, workshops, equipment stores, pre heating systems, (induction heating invertors for SH2), general stores, consumables and stand alone, electrical generators, as and when required. Finally, each system has 3 x hydraulically powered, pipe handling frames, PHFs , which facilitate up/down, left/right movements of pipeline or spool piece, one of the PHFs, has push/pull capability, for spool piece installation and final welding fit up. All three systems can accommodate pipes, ranging in diameter , from 6/ 153mm to 42/1067mm. The systems are operated in Saturation Diving mode (Heliox) , and can work in water depths ranging from -15msw to -300msw, (CHAS -200msw). However, the vast majority of Client, Hyperbaric Welding Projects, have taken place in water depth ranges, -20msw to -185msw. 2 x Seahorse, Habitat Pipeline Welding Systems, Seahorse 1 and 2 can perform standard tie ins and Emergency Pipeline Repairs and are rated to -300msw working depth.
