STATS Group in BP Pipeline Isolation Operation

Scottish oilfield services firm STATS Group reported Monday on a pipeline isolation operation it has completed for BP in the North Sea.

The firm said it has isolated a 24-inch oil export line on BP's Marnock ETAP spur line in the central North Sea in order to allow the replacement of a 16-inch valve.

STATS said that it deployed its 24-inch Remote Tecno Plug to isolate a pressure of 60 Bar, providing safe working conditions to allow valve replacement activities.

Steven Byers, STATS Group's isolation services managers, commented in a statement:

"The project was a success and enabled BP to complete maintenance works which were reliant on the plug providing an isolation. The client was happy with our flexible approach and willingness to interact to achieve the best outcome possible during a time critical window."
