Cause of Topsides Piping Damage
External Corrosion due to exposure to moisture and environmental factors such as precipitate from running water on pipe surface. Read this case study for internal corrosion pipeline.
Offshore Topsides Challenges Presented
One of the challenge presented for strengthening the topsides pipes were mostly centered on the general location of the offshore repair platform. The difference in pipe diameters also made it a challenge. The pipes also needed to be inspected and monitored to check for other possible developing corrosion along the pipeline.
ProAssure Wrap Application Details
The site of the damages was clearly identified and cleaned. The protective layer of paint was also stripped along with the corrosion marks. This was to make sure no particulate matter or left-over corrosive material were present. The pipes were prepared using mild abrasives to remove the paint and corrosion. It was then dried and prepared before the site was given an application of ProAssure Wrap on the affected pipes. The total length of the pipe repair was 26 meters all distributed differently within the topsides pipeline.
