i-Tech 7, Subsea 7’s Life of Field business unit, has completed a subsea decommissioning and abandonment project for LLOG Exploration in the Gulf of Mexico.
LLOG Exploration was seeking better ways to flush three flowlines and two umbilicals as part of the work scope to abandon the G1 115 platform. Instead of using the conventional method of coil tubing, i-Tech 7 developed a subsea high-flow flushing skid solution to flush the flowlines.
For the umbilicals, i-Tech 7 used its hydrate remediation skid (HRS) solution to remove blockages within the tubing of two umbilicals.
Edward Galloway, i-Tech 7’s region director for the Gulf of Mexico, said: “This is another great project example that showcases our engineering capabilities and ability to deliver a rapid-response technology solution that saves our clients’ money and exceeds their expectations.
“We are building a successful track record for our HRS technology globally and have recently increased our fleet in order to meet client demand.”
Julian Williams, subsea construction manager, LLOG Exploration said: “Due to the financial burden of decommissioning, we were looking for a robust, reliable and low-cost solution that would deliver. We have continued to be impressed by i-Tech 7 and their can-do approach to solving project and engineering challenges.”
