A South Korean company in the oil and gas industry has provided BUTTING with a number of orders since the middle of the year. The family owned company has produced and delivered more than 450 t of pipes in a wide variety of sizes and materials to equip an offshore platform.
The Jeanne d'Arc Basin lies in the Atlantic, 350 km off the coast of St. John's in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. In this area, an international oil company operates an offshore platform. At a depth of just under 100 m, heavy fuel oil is conveyed and processed on the platform. As part of the Hebron Topside project, the oil platform is being equipped with supply units and process pipes. The sub-Arctic climatic conditions impose severe demands on the selection and quality of the products used, since depending on the seasons means that there is the probability of floating icebergs and difficult meteorological and oceanographic conditions.
