px Group completes major subsea inspection

px Group is today delighted to share that its Aberdeen Pipelines team has completed a major subsea pipeline inspection project that has delivered a considerable 22% saving against the original budget.

The project consisted of nearly 700km of inspection work of the FUKA and SIRGE pipelines in the North Sea. The FUKA pipeline transports gas from the Frigg Field to the St Fergus Gas Terminal, while the SIRGE pipeline runs from the Shetland Gas Plant on Shetland to a tie-in with the FUKA pipeline. Both pipelines are vital to the transportation and supply of gas to mainland UK.

px Group was able to make considerable savings of 22% against the budget for the project, underlining its commitment to delivering value and high-quality performance for its clients. The subsea inspection was carried out using the very latest subsea technologies, including a Fast Remotely Operated Vehicle (Fast ROV) that captures high-definition images as well as a Multibeam Echosounder (MBES) that maps the seabed.

The project was px Group’s first major ROV campaign it had managed since the transition of the asset St Fergus Gas Terminal and associated pipelines, was delivered safely and on time.

Mike Horgan, px Group’s Managing Director Oil & Gas – Onshore, says:

“This was an extremely interesting project to work on, and the results speak for themselves. We are delighted with the outcome.”

“Such a huge saving against budget – without compromising on safety or on the technical specification – perfectly embodies the value-driven approach px Group takes when providing services to our clients.”

“Using the Fast ROV was an initiative suggested by a member of the Pipelines Team, who identified the opportunity and put together a compelling business case to carry out the survey using this new technology. This is yet another example of the collaborative approach we take on a daily basis with our staff, contractors and other stakeholders.”
