EDVARD GRIEG PLEM

IQIP successfully participated in the installation of a PipeLine End Manifold (PLEM) for the new UHGP pipeline. This PLEM is a subsea connection point between the new UHGP pipeline and the SAGE pipeline system which allows oil & gas transport from the Norwegian sector to the UK sector.

EFFICIENT & SAFE INSTALLATION OF PILES

The IQIP scope consisted of installation of four 24” PLEM piles to keep the manifold in place. The piles were safely upended and lifted using an IQIP ILT 24-42 Internal Lifting Tool.

After efficient stabbing of the piles into the PLEM-structure, pile driving was faultlessly performed by an IQIP S-90 Hydrohammer.

Significant time savings were achieved as the hammer, sleeve and follower were upended in one-lift using a unique Upending & Transportation Frame.

FULL SERVICE PARTNER

Technip Norge AS chose IQIP because of our extensive under water experience and the advantage of working with a full service partner that can deliver multiple tools in one contract.

EXTENSIVE DOCUMENT CONTROL

Requirement for this project was an extensive document control as project owner Statoil required an extensive Supplier Data Requirements List.

This SDRL means that as a supplier, IQIP was required to deliver plans, technical documents, notifications and test reports during the project in order to maintain quality and compliance.

Both project preparation – and operational phase were completed as per plan, followed by compliments from Technip Norge AS stating: “Great equipment, great service!”
