Subsea 7 Selects Hydratight Pipeline Connector for EPRS Project Off Australia
Subsea 7 has awarded a contract to Hydratight to supply pipeline connector solution for their Emergency Pipeline Repair System (EPRS) project in Australia.
The contract will see Hydratight deliver its MORGRIP mechanical connector.
The repair system is part of the contingency planning for multiple pipelines associated with Chevron Australia’s liquefied natural gas assets and INPEX’s Ichthys LNG Project off the northwest coast of Australia.
David Tromans, EPRS product manager for Hydratight, said: “This latest self-supporting connector design is capable of withstanding both pressure and external loading.”
“We’re delighted that Subsea 7 has chosen to use our MORGRIP mechanical connector solution for these internationally significant projects,” said Ken Bockhorst, president, Hydratight. “Its unique advantages have been appreciated by Subsea 7 and we look forward to working together for a successful execution of the project.”
