The project was to replace an existing infrastructure ships refueling pipeline.
The steel fuel pipeline was assessed as an environmental hazard and required urgent replacement following many years of patching.
The project required careful planning with Naval facility operations and required extensive site investigations to determine the precise route, condition and complexity of removal/abandonment. The new pipeline was designed, route selected to present minimal operations disruption for both onshore and offshore operations.
The 8inch pipeline was decommissioned, cleaned with no spills to the environment. The new pipeline was designed,fabricated, installed and integrated within new facilities with parallel management of fuel supplies to the ship fleet.
