STL Bags £1.6 Million Global Contract
- Project & Tenders
Subsea Technologies Ltd (STL) has secured a £1.6 million contract with an international engineering services firm to provide a range of products designed to improve productivity and reduce downtime.
The contract will see STL deliver a range of well intervention equipment, including three SLICs (Stackable Lightweight Intervention Connectors) and seven male mandrels, of which four will be configured as full-bore mandrels and two as test/lift caps, with one spare.
The connectors are fully populated with STL’s recently developed range of subsea hydraulic couplers in a range of sizes, and the scope also includes two SLIC deck test stands which enable full function and pressure testing of connected equipment on deck.
Drummond Lawson, managing director at STL, said: “We are pleased to have been awarded this major contract which we have worked hard to secure over a number of months.
“We look forward to working with our customer to deliver over the course of this project and beyond.”
The SLIC technology is a modular and flexible subsea solution that features “plug and play” connectivity, creating a robust, reliable connection point into well access systems.
As a latch-style connector for Riserless Subsea Well Intervention (RLWI), the technology improves safety, offers increased reliability, ease of maintenance and redundancy, the company explained.
Dave McKay, technical director at STL, said: “At STL, we consider all factors associated with operating in the field and keep this in mind when designing and delivering products.
“This is integral to our product design where we incorporate critical elements that mitigate risk and reduce downtime wherever possible – not only for our direct client but also for the end customer who receives the service delivered by our client using our products.”
