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 3 Rigsafe Booster Compressors, 14 high pressure Air Compressors, Aftercoolers, Oil Filtration Kits as well as operators for the project duration of five months. 

Dewatering of the 8 pipelines required Airpac Rentals’s 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.
