ICR-Norway completed recently its first job as a full-scope provider from engineering to installation on a jet turbine pressure washer pipe line on Åsgard B for Statoil.
ICR-Norway (ICRN) was approached by Statoil with the task of providing a complete project consisting of engineering, production, deconstruction and installation of 2″ pipe spool with Quickflange.
Upon re-routing pipe work for a jet turbine pressure washer, ICRN was tasked with delivering a complete project from engineering to installation and testing. The technical challenges was to re-route and tie in new pipe line on existing line including decommission and subsequent blinding of redundant line. Cutting and on-site fitting was required as well. Once blinded, Statoil also required the blind flange to be modified and fitted with a 1/2″ ball valve. The job offshore consisted of 3 cuts, mounting of 4 Quickflanges, installation of T-spool and blind flange. Bolting and pressure testing completed the job. The installation had to be completed in one shift from shut down.
ICRN reviewed and planned the job based on 3D modelling before conducting an offshore survey. The T-spool was sourced and built made-to-order through an approved supplier. ICRN provided Quickflange and cutting tools. ICRN supervisor completed the job on time according to plan. Modification of blind flange was done on-site.
The end result exceeded Statoil’s requirements for installation time and price. It was according to specifications and expectations for quality and chosen solution. ICRN was able to utilize its company size, flexibility and experience to deliver a low cost – high quality solution. Documentation was provided to specifications and engineering hours was efficiently used
Despite the compact size of the T-spool and the project it self, it was a big step for ICRN in a direction the company will pursue in the future. ICRN will continue to seek bigger scopes and become a noticeable provider of large-scope maintenance and modification projects.
