IRM Systems Awarded Key Contract by BBL Company

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/1/2012, Location: Europe

Independent Risk Management Systems B.V. (IRM Systems), an independent supplier of emergency pipeline repair systems (EPRS) and pipeline repair services, announced that pipeline operator BBL Company awarded the company a contract to produce a Concept Proposal that will provide a thorough assessment of the organization’s current pipeline repair contingency plans and preparedness.

BBL Company operates the BBL pipeline, which can provide the UK with approximately l5% of its total natural gas supply. The 36-inch export line transmits gas from Balgzand, near Den Helder, in The Netherlands to Bacton Gas Terminal on the coast of Norfolk, England. The system extends 235 kilometres (146 mi), 230 kilometres (140 mi) of which is offshore. The system is of strategic importance for the supply of gas to the UK.

IRM Systems is supplying BBL with advice as to whether the pipeline operator would benefit from a range of both established and emerging repair methods. The company will also provide guidance on the best-in-class repair technologies available and the companies that provide them. Separate sections of the Concept Proposal will be dedicated to optimizing readiness; where appropriate by locating EPRS hardware and tooling close to the asset. The primary objective of an EPRS is to facilitate the earliest possible return to operations.

Central to the study is a cost-benefit analysis that addresses the possibility of adopting an enhanced or – in some cases – a new EPRS. By doing so, decisions as to how best to move forward will be based on how investing in an EPRS will reduce downtime, costs and lost production in the event of an emergency repair. This analysis is based upon existing capabilities, possible improvements and, above all, the translation of all elements associated with emergency pipeline repair into an integrated system that is ready for use and easy to maintain.
