This collaboration comes as a response to better meet the technical challenges and ever increasing engineering specifications from the oil and gas offshore exploration and production sector of the market. As extraction takes place at increasing water depths, the combined strength of Hydratight and AS Connector offers clients complete solutions for remote pipeline repairs and also bring to market new offerings and solutions.

The combined offering allows for the remote deployment and installation of Hydratight mechanical connectors using innovative field proven systems and solutions. With over 45 years of subsea experience combined, this collaboration enables the subsea repair of deepwater, high pressure, high temperature, exotic material, horizontal pipelines and vertical riser installations, including steel catenary and hybrid towers.

Furthermore, complete solutions for pipeline freespan correction and autonomous riser cleaning and inspection, are just some of the additional services provided through this collaboration.

“Hydratight has significant track record supplying subsea solutions globally, including deepwater applications for remote operated mechanical connectors” said Paul Hughes, Global Subsea Leader at Hydratight. “By combining our expertise with that of AS Connector, we can offer an expanded and comprehensive portfolio of products and provide more efficient, optimised deepwater solutions to meet customers’ increasing demands.”

Pål Magne Hisdal, Managing Director at AS Connector further comments “AS Connector has been solving challenges related to IRM of deepwater pipelines since 2000. This collaboration with Hydratight enables us to reach a global market, but more importantly, by combining our experience from hundreds of critical pipeline operations, we can guarantee our customers unparalleled reliability, and that is what matters in subsea pipeline operations.”

The subsea pipeline IRM offering is available to clients and the partnership has already been awarded its first joint project. This is currently undergoing FEED and is planned to take place on a remote vertical riser repair at 1300m water depth offshore Angola.
