A gas leak on an existing steel line with a corrosion defect near a steel elbow.
We worked closely with existing contractors on-site to bring the service back online. This was achieved through the excavation of the compromised line, welding and pressure testing of saddles, hot tapping, and bag isolation to allow line repair.
Our ability to respond with a quick set-up and excavation reduced the overall downtime, and our specialised isolations removed the need for additional nitrogen purging of the 14kms stretch of pipeline. This tailored response resulted in significant cost savings in the order of $700k to $1M.
