Forum Energy Technologies’ Subsea PLRs for North Africa Project
Forum Energy Technologies has delivered a number of its subsea pig launchers and receivers (PLRs) and laydown heads for a project in North Africa.
The nine PLRs have been deployed as part of a development of nine subsea wells, which vary from 4 to 24 inches in size, with water depths ranging from 300 to 800 meters, the company informed.
Manufactured at Forum’s Moffat subsea engineering business in UK, the custom-designed units will be used in the completion of flooding, cleaning, gauging, strength test, intelligent pigging and de-watering activities.
John Thompson, operations director at Moffat, said: “Despite the market conditions, there has been a strong and continued demand for the capabilities and expertise held in our Moffat facility. We are engineering innovative products that are benefiting clients around the globe, and this latest contract is testimony to that.
“The scope of work for the project, which included the full design, manufacture and testing of the PLRs, underlines the fully integrated system we can offer from concept through to delivery.”
