STAVANGER, Norway -- Statoil has contracted TDW Offshore Services (TDW) for pipeline pressure isolation services and equipment using remotely operated SmartPlug technology.
The operations on Statoil’s Norwegian North Sea assets will support scheduled maintenance throughout the year. This month, TDW isolated designated sections of a pipeline attached to the Draupner platforms, a hub in Norway’s submarine gas trunklines network, and gas transport system to continental Europe. Later this spring, TDW plans similar services on a gas pipeline attached to the Statfjord B production platform.
