Halliburton supplies pipes for offshore Nigeria

Wellstream, a business unit of Halliburton Company’s Energy Services Group, has won a contract to supply one 8-inch internal diameter, and three 16-inch internal diameter dynamic topside jumpers to Single Buoy Moorings (SBM) for the Shell EA field development offshore Nigeria in West Africa. The jumpers will connect the field’s Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel and a Soft Yoke Mooring Platform (SYMP). At 16-inch (internal diameter), these jumpers will become the largest diameter flexible pipes yet to be produced by Wellstream at their manufacturing facility in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, for delivery in June 2002. The jumpers have been designed to withstand the severe operational conditions imposed by close proximity to the flare stack and degradation from prolonged exposure to Ultra Violet radiation.
