*A pipeline bundle product integrates the required flow lines, water injection, gas lift and control systems necessary for a subsea development and assembles them within a steel carrier pipe. At each end of the pipeline, the structures, manifolds, incorporating equipment and valves, designed specifically to the requirements of the field, are attached. The fully tested system is then launched and transported to the location using the controlled depth tow method. Once installed no trenching or rock dumping is required.
Subsea 7 is one of the world’s leading subsea engineering and construction companies offering all the expertise and assets that make subsea umbilical, riser and flowline (SURF) field development possible.
