LANCASTER, UK – Allseas has awarded First Subsea a contract to supply a 42-in. Ballgrab pipeline recovery tool (PRT) for the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline project in the Gulf of Mexico.

This 700-km (425-mi) subsea gas pipeline will interconnect with the Nueces-Brownsville pipeline and the Tuxpan-Tula pipeline.

The PRT is designed and constructed in a modular manner, accommodating different pipe specifications as well as permitting various pigging, dewatering, and sealing scenarios, First Subsea says.

TransCanada announced last June that it was chosen to build, own, and operate the $2.1-billion natural gas pipeline. Allseas was also reportedly brought on board in 2H 2016.
