ABERDEEN, UK – Subsea 7 has ordered pipeline connectors from Hydratight for its emergency pipeline repair system project in Australia.
The repair system is part of the contingency planning for multiple pipelines associated with Chevron Australia’s liquefied natural gas assets and INPEX’s Ichthys LNG project offshore northwest Australia.
Hydratight will supply its MORGRIP mechanical connector, which include a self-supporting connector solution (no pipe end abutment) for pipelines up to 44 in. in diameter.
David Tromans, emergency pipeline repair system product manager for Hydratight, said: “This latest self-supporting connector design is capable of withstanding both pressure and external loading.”
