Subsea Innovation has completed the design and manufacture of two 16” mechanical pipeline connectors for use by oil & gas operator RasGas.
These are the first systems that Subsea Innovation have produced for RasGas, the company said.
RasGas required the connectors to meet specific weld specifications that included being Inconel clad. Inconel cladding provides additional protection for the pipeline against the sour gas that it is transporting.
In addition to the connectors order, Subsea Innovation also secured an order from RasGas for the delivery of four structural pipeline repair clamps, to act as contingency against leaks or damage, for pipelines ranging from 16” in diameter to 38”.
Martin Moon, Subsea Innovation Managing Director, said, “Completing the connectors is a major achievement for Subsea Innovation. It demonstrates our capability to design & manufacture industry leading solutions for major Oil & Gas operators around the world.”
The design, build and test was carried out at the company’s 40,000 square foot headquarters on Faverdale Industrial Estate in Darlington.
