iPipe Services were engaged to procure and install 33 HPV/LPD units across gathering networks in the Surat Basin area.
iPipe Services designed and installed a detachable, and reusable DN315 bypass. The team then successfully completed repair work on the HPVs and LPDs whilst maintaining operation of the gathering network, minimising loss of production downtime.
iPipe Services cut, removed and replaced the old LPDs with the new ones including isolation valves and risers.
To expose the legacy designed LPDs, iPipe Services carried out live excavation to ensure the integrity of the gathering network.
HPVs with isolation valves on their risers were exposed via Hydro-Vac. The isolation valves were closed to allow the HPV units to be replaced.
The HPVs without valves required live excavation to be carried out either side of the main pipeline where squeeze off isolations (between DN250-560) could be applied to allow replacement.
