Decom Engineering upgrades PCR equipment solutions for oil and gas sector

Decom Engineering 3Decom Engineering’s latest R&D investment has updated its Pipe Coating Removal (PCR) equipment, which cleans decommissioned or surplus pipelines of multiple coatings, so they can be repurposed for use on other projects

The Northern Ireland-based business has also upgraded its range of cold cutting saws which have been successfully deployed on international decommissioning projects as oil and gas operators replace or remove ageing infrastructure.

The latest modifications to its single blade cutter will allow Decom Engineering to target a new revenue stream, assisting clients in recovering conductors from decommissioned oil and gas rigs. 

The combination of a team of skilled engineer-fitters and an in-house design-and-build capability, gives Decom Engineering the flexibility to adapt its tools and equipment to bespoke client requirements and offer faster response times.

Decom Engineering CEO Sean Conway said, “Our ongoing commitment to R&D has put us in a strong position to be at the forefront of decommissioning projects as the oil and gas majors accelerate their move to energy transition.

“Mobility and portability means we can deploy to anywhere in the world to play a dual-purpose role of safely dismantling, in the most efficient and environmentally friendly manner, infrastructure which is no longer fit for purpose.

“Our PCR machines can then further reduce the carbon footprint and return value to the client, by cleaning and preparing steel pipelines so that they are suitable for use in other projects. For example, decommissioned pipelines can be used in piling and construction work, and in the last year our Dutch facility has processed and repurposed more than 20,000 tons of steel.”

“Our technologies help recycle downgraded oil and gas pipes into a useable product instead of scrap steel, hugely increasing the value chain for our partners and decreasing the carbon footprint of the industry.”
