Systems for flexible oil and gas pipelines, cables and umbilicals

We have a proven track record of flex lay systems for flexible oil and gas pipelines, cables and umbilicals on the sea bed.

Flexible pipe lines are spooled on to carousels or deck reels in port, before vessel transits to field and lays the pipe, either via a vertical tower (VLS), or a horizontal tensioner and chute arrangement (HLS). The systems have the ability to deploy end terminations, and accessories such as buoyancy. Capacities range from 50t, up to 600t.

Features

  • vertical axis carousels and associated spooling equipment, typically located under deck
  • aligner chutes for guiding the pipe into the tensioners
  • tracked tensioners for holding the pipe and lowering to the sea bed
  • worktable, for adding accessories to the pipe line, typically with integrated collar clamp
  • PLET handling system, for manoeuvring end terminations into position for connection with the pipe line
  • abandonment and recovery (A&R) System, for lowering completed pipe line to the sea bed.
