The AOGV was designed, fabricated, tested, CE-marked and ready for operation by IK in 6 weeks. With an operational pressure of 155 bar gas, the IK team safely isolated the live system enabling maintenance and replacement work with no shut downs.
The flanged connection was separated, the RTJ gasket was removed and the line was isolated at 155 bar hydrocarbon gas. The system was restored by installing a new gasket and flange bolts.
"World record! Live isolation and restoring system at high pressure hydrocarbon line at 155 bar in cramped surroundings in the turret of an FPSO."
