Solution & Implementation
Expro turned to Furmanite. We offered a world first in engineering design. It brought together hot tapping, leak sealing and double line-stopping technology to enable final tie-ins to be made while the existing piping system remained fully operational and while batches of produced water were diverted for the purpose of commissioning the new IGFU vessel.
Case Study: Shell Expro Gannet Platform
A Furmanite “World First” keeps Shell production flowing
CUSTOMER: Shell Expro Gannet platform
PROBLEM: When Shell United Kingdom Exploration and Production (Expro) introduced a new Induced Gas Floatation Unit (IGFU) onto their Gannet platform they had planned to finalise the installation during a 30-hour shutdown. The shutdown was then cancelled.
