STATS Group are market leaders in the supply of pressurised pipeline isolation, hot tapping and plugging services to the global oil, gas and petrochemical industries. STATS DNV GL type approved isolation tools provide leak-tight double block and bleed isolation that enables safe and efficient maintenance and repair of onshore, topsides and subsea pipeline infrastructure.

Our Process Plant Solutions offer hot-work barriers and localised hydrostatic test tools to verifying the integrity of welds or fittings, reducing system downtime, minimising environmental impact and increasing worksite safety. Mechanical pipe connectors replace the need for welding, significantly reducing expenditure and associated risks with hot-work.

Innovative solutions and proprietary technologies include:

BISEP™ – Hot Tapping & Plugging

Hot Tapping and Plugging can be achieved using STATS patented BISEP™. The fail-safe double block and bleed isolation is deployed through a single full bore hot tap penetration, without the need for additional bleed or vent ports. The BISEP™ offers significant safety advantages over traditional line stop technology, the hydraulically activated dual seals provide leak-tight isolation of live, pressurised pipelines.

Tecno Plug™ – Non-intrusive Inline Isolation

The Tecno Plug™ provides fail-safe double block and bleed isolation of pressurised pipelines while the system remains live and at operating pressure. Dual seals provide a zero-energy zone to enable maintenance work to be carried out safely and efficiently. Piggable isolation tools require no welding or cutting into live lines, leaving no residual fittings or hardware on the pipeline.

STATS have gained an excellent reputation for providing a responsive, client-centred approach combined with expertise and innovative products which:

  • Enhance safety and environmental performance
  • Reduce system or plant downtime
  • Improve asset performance
  • Support decommissioning and abandonment

Project management and engineering services are provided to support client needs including turnaround scopes, feasibility studies and contingency planning. Our in-house expertise covers the plant’s lifecycle from pre-commissioning through to decommissioning and abandonment.

STATS provide high quality, fit-for-purpose solutions to ensure that the pipework and pipeline infrastructure of our clients meet the technical, safety and environmental standards required.

Headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland, STATS Group operate globally through a growing network of operational bases, branch offices and partners.
