NorFra Pipeline Installation Project: Pretrenching, Seabed Levelling, and Landfall Dredging and Civil Works
A 42" diameter, 835 km-long, high pressure natural gas pipeline was laid from Norway to France in record time and under budget.
Cement and Soft Mud Mixing Technique Using Compressed Air-Mixture Pipeline: Efficient Solidification
The 1998 IADC Award-winning paper, presented at the WODCON XV in Las Vegas, explains an efficient new technique being utilised in Japan.
Unable to excavate a conventional open trench because of dumping limitations, a new technique was developed to install the pipeline through “diluted” soil.
Prediction of the aggregation process and an accurate estimate of the critical velocity in a pipeline may lead to more effective control of the diesel engines and other types of drives.
