The Dive Support Vessel 'Thebaud Sea' was recently mobilized by McDermott International, Inc.  for an emergency pipeline repair intervention contract offshore the United Arab Emirates. McDermott say that this is the third time in recent months that the DSV has been fast-tracked to carry out an emergency response.

“Pipeline failures can often result in significant production loss, which is why reaction speed to these cases is critical,” explained Scott Cummins, Executive Vice President, Offshore. “Although there is added pressure due to the impact in oil revenues, Health, Safety and the Environment remains at the forefront for Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems (EPRS). The pipeline must be safely isolated and then stabilized before any repairs can be executed, to ensure the safety of the diver and the environment.”

With the support of in-house offshore resources, McDermott engineering teams have completed several EPRS studies on behalf of a number of clients. For each repair scenario, an individually tailored solution was delivered to cater to specific emergency responses to pipeline damage.

“Every case is unique, which is why the approach must be robust enough to handle any given situation,” commented Cummins. “Our operational knowledge, experience and expertise defines our engineering deliverables as real solutions, over theoretical studies. We are pleased that our clients have shown repeat confidence in our EPRS capabilities,” he concluded.
