Pipeline bundles

Arrangement of two or more pipelines laid parallel and directly contiguous.

The two 7.5km bundles will link the subsea manifold to the field main production platform.Weighing 12,000t in air, the bundles contain a 14in production line, an 8in test line, a 3inmethanol line and finally, a 12in pipe to circulate hot water. It will be pumped from the platform to the subset manifold at 90°C and return via the annulus for recycling, helping to prevent the formation of waxes and hydrates within the flowlines.
