Regulatory Agency Accepts Belzona® Superwrap II



Oil & Gas (OILG)




Customer Location:

Gulf of Mexico, USA


Application Date:

October 2016


Application Situation:

Offshore platform with leaking pipe



The customer had a section of pipe with external corrosion problems and several through wall defects. Traditional cut and replace alternatives would require costly shutoff of the platform. The entire pipe was welded in place and there were no flanged connections to make a spool swap. An engineered solution was required by the regulatory agency that oversees the platform.
