The pipeline network consists of three pipeline systems delivering gas from the offshore blocks in Angola to the LNG Plant located in Soyo, Angola and operated by our company. The Network consists of approximately 500 KM of pipelines in water depths from 1800 m to onshore segments.
We are developing an In-Line Inspection (ILI) project to inspect 2 pipeline segments in the company’s pipeline network, the 18” gathering pipeline from Block 15 and Block 31 to the onshore LNG plant, and the 24” gathering pipeline from PLEM 3A to the onshore LNG plant from Blocks 17/18/32.
The 24” pipeline from Block 17 is planned to be pigged from the PLEM 3A located in Block 3 to the onshore LNG Plant in Soyo, Angola. The PLR (Pig Launcher/Receiver) will be connected subsea to the PLEM 3A in 170 m water depth utilizing driverless methods and equipment. Refurbishment and preparation of the 24” PLR and associated subsea running tools required for the connection are included in the project scope. The pig receiver located in the LNG plant is a permanently installed equipment. A MSV vessel equipped with WROV’s will be utilized to perform the pigging operations.
The 18” pipeline from Block 15 is planned to be pigged from the Kizomba B topsides via the Block 15 operator. The pigging route will run through the infield pipelines within Block 15 with varying diameters before entering the company’s operated pipeline segment. The pig receiver located in the LNG plant is a permanently installed equipment.
