Extending life of offshore platforms

Published:  09 July, 2014

james_walker.jpgJames Walker says extending the life of offshore oil and gas platforms beyond their original design philosophy has resulted in RotaBolt measurement technology being adopted across a number of major projects. A combination of 'permanent' repair work, upgrading existing infrastructure and the development of new and complex strengthening systems is reported to have resulted in new contracts and a significant area of business for the company.

The company says with expectations that oil and gas fields may still be producing for another 25 to 30 years, the work has also included the straightforward re-fit of RotaBolts on existing production infrastructure, such as on heat exchangers and high pressure pipe work and flanges, but it is where new designs and engineering techniques have had to be used that the fasteners have been helping to break new ground.
