IRM Systems - subsea pipeline repair operation in Indonesia 2016
IRM Systems, the independent authority on emergency pipeline repairs, revealed that as a result of a new and innovative approach to pipeline repair, it contributed to achieving dramatic cost-savings on the recent repair of a live subsea pipeline in the Java Sea, Indonesia. The objective of the operation was to seal a tear on a weld seam by installing a permanent repair solution.
IRM Systems began providing engineering services for the project in January 2015. Normally, the operation would have been executed by a major EPIC company – and nearly was – but in this instance, the operator decided to do something different. It decided that it should be executed by a smaller service contractor, drawing upon the services of a constellation of specialist providers, including IRM Systems.
