Balltec has secured a contract from Saipem in Italy for the supply of 2 off Sheave Connection Points (SCPs) for Dolphin Energy’s Emergency Pipeline Repair System (EPRS). The EPRS supports the Dolphin Gas Project where natural gas from Qatar’s ‘North Field’ is transported via two 36” diameter sealines to the company’s onshore processing plant at Ras Laffan, Qatar. Once processed, the gas is then transported via export subsea pipeline from Ras Laffan to Taweelah, UAE.
Balltec has recently secured a contract from Intermoor Inc., based in Houston, USA, for the supply of 9 off of its MoorLOK subsea mooring connectors for a project off the coast of West Africa.
