Belzona® Superwrap II Repairs Drain Lines On Deepwater Platform

 
 

Industry:

Oil & Gas (OILG)

 
 

Application:

Ships and Offshore Structures (SOS)

 
 

Customer Location:

Gulf of Mexico, USA

 
 

Application Date:

July 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

Deepwater platform has 17 areas on drain line that need repair. The repair needed to be ASME compliant.

 
 

Problem:

The drain line goes to the sump, which is the lowest point on the platform. If there is any oil spill or runoff, it could potentially get into the water.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

Belzona Superwrap II

 

Substrate:

Carbon steel

 
 

Application Method:

Being the lowest drain point on the platform, the work had to be carried out by a rope access crew.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Replacing the drain line would require hazardous hot work and a platform-wide shut in. An unplanned shut in would cost the client $3M per day.
