Late 2011 Atlas Copco Rental was requested by his customer to supply a mobile Offshore Nitrogen spread to dewater a subsea pipeline owned by the company Chevron. This dewatering activity was one of the final stages putting the Chevron gas production platform in block B13 in operation.
All equipment need to be offshore specification and installed in DNV certified lifting frames.
Atlas Copco Rental BV supplied offshore trained and certified technicians to operate the spread. All equipment was transferred to the harbor of Den Helder where it was loaded on a vessel to be transported to block 13.
The technicians went by helicopter offshore. The total project inclusive transit, tests, installation, commissioning and operations took more than 3 weeks where the dewatering activity itself only took 13 hours.
