Jee Ltd’s pigging and plugging division has had a successful 1Q17, having 11 new projects awarded by six different clients across Europe, Africa and South East Asia. Of the new projects, nine relate to pigging and two to plugging projects.
Sitting within Jee’s core engineering capabilities, the new 2017 scopes cover the full asset lifecycle from new projects to decommissioning pigging scopes and range from:
- Feasibility and concept studies for ‘unpiggable’ or challenging pipelines and plugging operations.
- Technical assurance of complex inline inspection campaigns, including subsea launch/receipt, multi-diameter pipelines and bidirectional inspections.
- Technical assurance of plugging operations for topside valve change-outs.
- Site execution work overseeing pigging and inspection operations.
Paul Otway, Jee’s Head of Pigging, said: “2016 was a good year for Jee’s pigging and plugging discipline, but this year has already started at pace. We are very excited to see where the rest of 2017 will take us, especially given the diversity of projects underway and on the horizon for existing and new clients.”
Reflecting on the turbulence of the industry over the past two years, Otway continues: “This time last year, inspection scopes were being deferred, increasing operational risk and the likelihood of a failure. It is encouraging to see a significant increase in the number of pigging and plugging scopes being considered and undertaken by operators, both in the North Sea and further afield, reflecting a more positive outlook across the industry.”
Jee has a long and successful track record of undertaking pigging and plugging projects for clients across the world. From feasibility studies, through concept development to execution, Jee offers niche engineering support and project management for pigging and plugging operations. Jee’s engineers are frequently involved in troubleshooting stuck pigs and isolation plugs, tool selection, testing and development, risk assessments and technical assurance.
