RESPONSIBLE & EFFICIENT
It is the inevitable fate of all offshore assets that when they cease to be financially viable they will be decommissioned. This can be as little as 5 years after first oil but, typically this is after 30 years or more of service.
During their life times the assets will have undergone a great deal of maintenance and modification and these modifications can often result in situations where there is multi diameter pipework or the removal of pigging facilities making many pipeline unpiggable.
There is no payback for any operator in decommissioning but with high levels of environmental responsibility all pipelines must be thoroughly cleaned before they are cut to prevent the release of hydrocarbons into the marine environment.
The combined drivers of economics, environment and technical difficulty makes the use of SANCCUS pipeline gel, gel pigging and cleaning technology a vital set of tools for any operators to safely and successfully remove their asset.
No two decommissioning projects are ever quite the same so there is no template solution. SANCCUS excel at offering bespoke chemical solutions to solve these challenges.
