Project Summary

The customer had a collapsed stainless steel liner on a subsea pipeline in the North Sea, where the test plug could not be retrieved  and as a result production could not be re-started.

Challenge Set By Customer

Glacier was asked to find a solution to allow the plug to be retrieved within an extremely short timescale of 14 days.

This was a technically challenging situation, involving identifying a solution and then designing and manufacturing equipment which would successfully allow retrieval of the plug

Outcome

Glacier designed a bespoke solution, proactively managing internal resources and the external supply chain to manufacture the machine and delivered it to the customer within the 14 day deadline after successful testing. The customer was delighted with the outcome, especially due to the creativity applied and the speed of response within the tight deadline.

The problem had a direct impact on production therefore the turnaround was time critical. The solution was trialled in front of customer in advance of deployment.

Benefits

The team’s experience and in-house design and manufacturing capabilities meant that a solution could be delivered in a tight deadline and minimum distription to production, meaning reduced downtime and ultimately, cost.
