OGN Establishes New Pipework Division

OGN Group has launched a new pipework division to deliver specialist fabrication services for bespoke projects.

Utilising its purpose-built facilities at the 32-hectare Hadrian Yard on the banks of the River Tyne in Wallsend, OGN provides a range of services for all forms of fabricated pipework to oil and gas, petrochemical and subsea codes.

The division, which is manned by a team of experienced engineers, also offers onsite Radiography Inspection, Positive Material Identification, Pipework Blasting & Coating Activities in addition to Pneumatic & Hydrostatic Pressure Testing, the company wrote.

The capabilities of the division are supported by a recent investment by OGN in an automated cutting machine, which delivers a Computer Numeric Control (CNC) capacity that previously could only be produced by manual cutting.

The technology offers flexibility and increased range of use through two cutting methods. It is capable of processing pipe from 50mm OD up to 1200mm OD, with plasma cutting on pipe wall thickness of up to 20-25mm and Oxy-Gas on pipe walls above 25mm thickness.

David Edwards, CEO of OGN Group, said: “The skills of our workforce and the investments we have made in our facility and technology has enabled us to create this division, which will operate alongside larger EPC projects we deliver.

“As the offshore market is evolving we are experiencing interest from both existing and potential customers throughout the energy sector looking at our capabilities to provide bespoke fabrication work that is part of other projects.

“Our focus on productivity, which is supported by the investments we have made in new technology, is attractive to operators and other contractors who are addressing the well-publicised challenges facing the industry, and in particular the UK oil & gas market.

“The launch of the pipework fabrication division is part of our approach to remain an agile and proactive part of the supply chain through its current evolutionary journey, as we ensure to meet all of our clients pipework fabrication requirements.”
