CHALLENGE THE CONVENTIONAL
We pioneer new ways to make pipelay, inspection and intervention quicker, safer and cleaner for the global energy industry.
Transforming the industry landscape with designed and patented pipeline solutions, the most advanced Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and state-of-the-art software packages.
The demand for more complex solutions to overcome challenges increases daily, as does the desire to develop them.
Investment in research and development (R&D) is key in driving the sector forward but it’s also important that existing technology from both inside and outside the industry is optimised.
At Cortez Subsea we pride ourselves in creative collaboration to provide the best possible service and utilise state-of-the-art technologies for quicker, safer and cleaner solutions.
Murray was invited by Subsea UK to contribute to its session which addressed issues and shared the latest developments in the energy industry.
Cortez has been working with NOV-Tuboscope for many years to deliver Zap-Lok™ mechanical connectors to the Malaysian and worldwide offshore market for pipelay which is faster, stronger and cheaper.
The Zap-Lok™ technology is proven with more than 7000km of subsea hydrocarbon pipelines installed worldwide and zero recorded failures in operation of over 70,000 joints.
A challenging environment can render traditional techniques inefficient, uneconomic or impossible, and Murray explained how this solution can offer a weld-free alternative to improve safety, dramatically cut costs and reduce our carbon footprint.
The event included other speakers from Wood and Enpro Subsea and delegates heard about many ingenious technologies transforming our industry daily.
Welding is the predominant method for fabricating pipe systems across the sector. But there are several applications where traditional welded pipe connections become inefficient, uneconomic or impossible. Cortez Subsea works with NOV-Tuboscope to pioneer Zap-Lok™ mechanical connectors into new markets for pipelay which is faster, stronger and cheaper.
The work will be jointly executed with Alam Maritim Resources Berhad under our consortium agreement and Cortez will deliver the engineering, procurement and operational activities from our office in KL.
