Pipeline Recovery PipeLOK Connector Subsea Offshore Solution

\\        Pipeline recovery solutions

A world leader in pipeline solutions spanning the full life of field

Balltec Engineered Solutions has an unrivalled track record of pipeline solutions including the development of tooling and systems in pipeline recovery, pipe lay, infrastructure upgrades, IRM, emergency repair and decommissioning.

Through the development of pipeline solutions, Balltec has amassed an extensive fleet of equipment readily available for rapid deployment, including; pipeline A&R, plugging and abandonment equipment, cutting, pigging and dewatering operations, on-deck handling equipment, handling of flexible pipe, riser operations and emergency pipeline repairs.

PipeLOK™

PipeLOK Pipeline Recovery Tool

A bespoke, high integrity pipeline
abandonment and recovery tool
for harsh environments, the next generation large ball design provides greater re-usability over a broad range of internal pipe diameters.

The PipeLOK also makes up the largest pipeline abandonment and recovery rental fleet in the
world.

The highest rated internal pipeline lifting tool ever produced, the PipeLOK is lighter and more compact than all comparable products and its robust construction is designed for multiple lifts and multiple recoveries.

Any diameter of pipe or pile

Any wall thickness

Limited only by pipe capacity

No depth limitation

PIG & Plug Launcher

Plug Launcher Pipeline Recovery Tool

The PIG & Plug Launcher is the world’s first diverless and flangeless subsea PIG Launcher.

The PIG launch system can work
independently or in conjunction with our PipeLOK™ pipeline recovery tools to enable pipelines to be lifted from the sea bed in a dewatered state.

The PIG & Plug Launcher can grip and seal onto a cut end of a pipe meaning the PIG can be launched without the need for any additional fixtures to be added onto the pipe.

Any diameter of pipe

Any pressure

Diver-less operation

Default locked state

Simple, quick disconnect

CoilLOK Coiled Handling Tool Coil Spool

\\        CT Handling solutions

Perfected over decades

One of the first applications for ball and taper technology was the introduction of the CoilLOK™ coiled tubing (CT) handling tool.

Following the success of the CoilLOK™ where the high load and compact design is proven, Balltec has developed several further solutions for oilfield application.

Some of the recent Balltec oilfield solutions include; down-hole fishing tools, Quick Emergency Disconnect (QED) for Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA), emergency subsea casing string hang-off, drill pipe slips and drill string handling tools.
