Latest Project Application

Sapura Energy Offshore Pipeline Removal Campaign

Sapura Energy (Thailand), on behalf of Chevron, required a tool engineered to seal and recover 29 reverse S-lay pipelines with high mercury content in the Gulf of Thailand.

Three sets of PipeLOK-16-005‘s sealed the pipeline and provided a controlled removal of high-mercury content, contaminated water.

The PipeLOK-16-005 recovered each pipeline to deck.

After an impressionably successful campaign, Chevron have repurposed the tool for their removal support of topside, jacket and pipeline removal campaign with Mermaid Group, also in the Gulf of Thailand.
