Pipeline Dewatering & Drying

Airpac Rentals has rented high pressure equipment spreads for pipeline dewatering and drying projects.


In quick succession to the Tyrihans pipeline pre-commissioning contract in the Norwegian sea, Airpac Rentals successfully supplied a large-scale operated high pressure boosted air compression spread to PSL Energy Services (Halliburton) on the Normand Carrier for pipeline dewatering offshore Egypt, for Saipem’s Burullus West Delta Phase 4 project.

The high pressure equipment spread comprised of three Rigsafe Booster Compressors, 14 high pressure Air Compressors, Aftercoolers, Oil Filtration Kits, and operators for the project duration of five months. 

Dewatering of the eight pipelines required Airpac Rentals equipment to deliver 12000 cfm (2000 psi) of technically oil free air. 

The West Seno project involved the drying of a subsea pipeline from the Santan Terminal to the FPU. Airpac Rentals supplied and operated a drying spread comprising of five high pressure Air Compressors 960 cfm (365 psi), four 1200 cfm Air Dryers and two 2500 psi Booster Compressors.
