Scottish oilfield services firm reported Tuesday afternoon (UK time) that it has successfully completed an isolation project on TAQA Bratani's Brent pipeline at the Sullom Voe terminal in the Shetland Islands.
The Aberdeen-based firm provided a double-block isolation to facilitate a valve refurbishment operation on the 36-inch Brent pipeline pig receiver while the pipeline remained in normal operation. STATS Group achieved this using a 36-inch Tecno Plug that was controlled using composite hydraulic lines to allow the valve change-out to be carried out safely.
STATS Group CEO Pete Duguid commented in a company statement:
"The project ran like clockwork with all parties working seamlessly together. STATS' isolation services allowed valve maintenance activities to take place efficiently and prevented shutting down the entire pipeline. This would have resulted in a loss of time and revenue, potentially costing millions of pounds in lost production per day."
