First Subsea wins Gulf of Mexico contract
First Subsea has been awarded a contract to supply a 42-inch Ballgrab Pipeline Recovery Tool (PRT) for a project in the Gulf of Mexico.
Based in Lancaster, UK, First Subsea is a leading supplier and developer of ball and taper Ballgrab connectors.
The company was awarded the contract by Allseas for the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline project, a 700-km subsea gas pipeline which will connect the Nueces-Brownsville and Tuxpan-Tula pipelines.
The PRT is designed and constructed to be flexible and has the ability to accommodate different pipe specifications, as well as various pigging, dewatering and sealing scenarios.
It has been used since 1994 and subsequently been supplied to over 125 major projects around the world.
First Subsea Proposals Manager Phil Day said “It’s great to be working with Allseas again, especially on this prestigious project.”
