Pipe-in-pipe solution restores oil production
Schoonebeek, the Netherlands

Leakage caused by internal corrosion of a production water pipeline stopped the production of NAM’s Schoonebeek oilfield. aQuaintance resolved this problem by delivering a flexible pipe-in-pipe solution. The pipe-in-pipe construction reduced reparation time of the pipeline to an absolute minimum. The construction and the use of the flexible composite pipe are unique for the Netherlands.
Bilfinger Tebodin as part of aQuaintance (a partnership between Engie, A. Hak and Bilfinger Tebodin) provided the engineering and management of the project, which has involved a lot of testing of the work method to ensure it held up against the high standards of NAM.

The pipe-in-pipe solution provides a quicker and cost effective solution for the replacement of outdated pipes and causes minimal impact on the environment. The construction is suitable for high pressure, water, oil and gas pipelines.
