Assessment of fatigue of a subsea pipeline including analysis of dents

Introduction A client of ours – one of the major operators – had plans to re-develop two of their existing fields in the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS). The objectives of the re-development were to increase production yields and increase the life of the field. Part of the redevelopment would result in increased throughput for …

Decommissioning of an onshore pipeline network

The scope of work A major operator asked us to develop a decommissioning strategy for the out of service pipelines of an onshore network. The pipeline network was in an especially environmentally sensitive area of the UK, featuring sites of special scientific interest, special protection areas, and national nature reserves. Due to the sensitive location …

Decommissioning of a North Sea platform and subsea infrastructure

The scope Our client, a Southern North Sea operator, wished to flush and disconnect all flowlines and control umbilicals from each of the associated subsea wellheads and manifolds within a field.The operation involved live well abandonment using a diving support vessel (DSV) to enable the well P&A activities and pipeline decommissioning/abandonment to progress separately. The …
