Balltec completes offshore pipeline recovery work in the North Sea

Balltec has recently completed offshore pipeline recovery work on behalf of TechnipFMC Norway.

Balltec provided a 10 inch PipeLOK pipeline recovery tool, which was deployed to a water depth of 314 metres. The subsea pipeline recovery tool was used to recover a 10 inch gas pipeline on Equinor’s Åsgard field, located in the Norwegian Sea.  The work, which was overseen by a Balltec offshore technician, was required to re-lay the pipe in an installation area to allow the replacement of a previously damaged section of pipe.

Balltec is the world’s leading supplier of subsea pipeline recovery tools with over 70 stock tools available to suit pipe sizes ranging from 4 to 44 inch in diameter. Balltec’s PipeLOK is the world’s most reliable pipeline abandonment and recovery tool, and it is expertly engineered for the laydown and recovery of pipelines and risers.
