Subsea 7 Wins Pipeline Industries Guild Award

Subsea 7 has been honored by receiving the 2010 Pipeline Industries Guild (PIG) Award for Subsea Pipeline Technology. The award was presented at the 53rd PIG National Dinner held in London on Tuesday, March 9, 2010.

The award recognizes the contribution made by Subsea 7 for the design, manufacture, testing and operation of a new deepwater diverless pipeline repair system. The system was used to repair a damaged 12-inch water injection pipeline in 1350 meters water depth in the Girassol field operated by Total, Operator for the Block 17 Consortium, as Contractor of Sonangol Concessionnaire.

Allan Glennie, Project Manager on the Girassol Pipeline Repair Project, accepted the award on behalf of the company and said, "I am honored that the Pipeline Industries Guild judges have recognized the work Subsea 7 is doing in this area. The pipeline repair system, developed in-house by Subsea 7, integrates new and proven technologies to provide a system which has the potential to be used in a range of Life-of-field applications, as the equipment and technology are fully transferable."
