Norway-based 4C Solutions (4CS) has been awarded a contract from China Offshore Oil Engineering (COOEC).
The contract will see 4CS deliver a complete contingency repair system to cover pipelines in the South China Sea.
The project includes design, fabrication, testing and delivery of a system that can be used to repair pipelines between 6” and 30” in diameter.
The system will be able to be used to water depths of 2000 meters.
In addition, 4CS will be responsible for training of COOEC personnel and for leading the offshore testing in China.
4CS said that the project has already begun and delivery is planned to take place in China in autumn 2018.
David Cooke, managing director of 4C Solutions, said: “We will be taking all of our previous experience from our involvement with other comparable systems for contingency pipeline repair. We are really looking forward to our cooperation with COOEC on this project.
“Key personnel in 4CS have worked with development and delivery of systems like these for 30 years, and this contract is important for us to strengthen our position as a global EPC supplier in the market for subsea repairs, structures, tie-ins and other subsea tooling.”
