23 Case Study Onshore EPRS 23

24 BTC Pipeline Key features From Baku Tiblisi Ceyhan Consortium of 11 operators 1768 km long and 42, 34 and 12 diameters Crossing 3 countries, mountain ranges up to 2,830 metres Traverses 3000 roads, railways, utility lines above/below ground Crosses 1500 water courses up to 500 metres wide 1million b/d 24

25 Purpose of EPRS Contract Put in place a system for response and repair under unpredictable circumstances and emergency situations Damage Scenarios Loss of containment by Corrosion Malicious damage Illegal fittings Earthquakes Landslides TDW Services Supply of equipment & materials Call-off services per incident Maintain Readiness In-country point of contact Initial mobilization 4 hours 24 hours working year contract (Owner to supply specified material) 25

26 Key Events Day 1 : Fire at BVS 26km of 42 pipe affected Assessment team arrived 11 hours after first notification Equipment & manpower within 24 hours of instruction Specialists from Europe within 60 hours of instruction Determined the strategy and time frame with customer Identified single point contact Ensured back-up/contingency plans Damage successfully repaired Pipeline shutdown for 15 days 26

27 Integrity Risks 25 Illegal taps removed Pipe preparations Manageable associated hazards Low / medium risk Predictable location Known quantity (generally) Easier planning Recovery of illegal feature Welded fitting prior to hot tap

28 Site activities normal operations 42 double STOPPLE Job with bypass Valve condition assessment 8 bypass for temporary capping Coating removal and re-coating Pre-heating and welding 28

29 Key Lessons Learned Single point contact at each base One-step-ahead strategy very effective Range of repair procedures Sub-contractor base needs strengthening Strategic placement of equipment along pipeline Dedicated EPRS packages at critical stations Increased inventory across the board Formalise maintenance activities 29

43 Offshore Typical EPRS Pre-investments EPRS Study : - Establish Risk Priority - Establish overall EPRS scenarios and needs Saving Time : - Establish Framework Agreement for aerial / subsea surveys - Pre-invest in critical Long Lead materials, e.g. line pipe; clamps; fittings. Impact Anchors, Dropped objects Leak study rupture, water ingress Decomm/Re-comm Repair options isolation, cut-outs Procurement materials, spreads Project organization Critical Saving Costs : - Framework Agreement for marine spread & equipment - - Develop Repair Scenarios for rapid execution (SmartPlug Tool) Saving Pipe Inventory : - Pre-invest in Isolation, Bypass, Hot Tap equipment - Pre-invest in Decommissioning/Re-commissioning needs 43

44 Case Study Offshore EPRS 44

45 Mini Case Study: Malaysia Midline Repair An operator in Malaysia identified a leaking clamp on a 24-inch subsea gas pipeline operating at 750 psi in 70 metres water depth. TDW launched two SmartPlug isolation tools separated by inhibited seawater to straddle the defect to allow it to be cut and replaced. After the cut, each end of the pipeline which was isolated at 750 psi was lifted to the surface in order to weld a flange onto the pipeline, because the operator did not want to install gripped flanges. After lowering the ends, a spool piece was inserted and bolted to the flanges. 45

46 Case Study: TransMed Anchor Drag Mazara 46

47 Damage Consequence TransMed Pipeline System Line 3S completely severed Line 2S dented and lifted out of trench 1 S 2 S 3 S 4 S Blue : Pipelines before the incident Red : Pipelines after the anchor drag 47

48 Damage Consequence Cut out sections of the damaged 26 gas line Compelling evidence of the severe consequences of anchor drags 48

49 Repair Scenario This was an emergency repair, no EPRS was in place POST-EVENT SCENARIO ANALYSIS Damage Type Characterization Physical Characterization Pipeline Operating Condition Expected Downtime Range Downtime Mitigation Measures Pigable Dent < 10% reduction Pipe remains dry None initially, 4 (Buckle) in P/L I.D. and pressurized weeks during repair and RTO Temporary Repair clamp Unpiggable Dent (Buckle) 20 Line > 10% reduction in P/L I.D. Pipeline remains dry and pressurized 2 weeks initially during damage assessment, then 6 weeks during repair and RTO Temporary repair clamp Rupture 26 Line Unpigable inline, penetration of pipeline wall Release of gas, possible localized flooding of pipeline Immediate shutdown, 10 weeks to repair and RTO 49

50 Repair Option selected Surface Tie-In Surface Tie-in Prepare pipeline Cut out damaged section Recover each end onto laybarge Re-lay with overlap Lift both ends & weld Lay over Equipment delivery was requested to be in 6 weeks The company chose a totally diverless repair 50

51 Isolation Option to manage pipeline inventory TDW SmartLift Customised SmartLift TM Pipeline Recovery Tools. Inserted at the cut end Functions: - Isolation tool - Pig launcher/receiver - Lifting head 51

58 Overall Conclusions Onshore & Offshore Growing trend among operators to develop an EPRS Planning and essential investments must be made in advance Differences in approach between Onshore & Offshore EPRS: o Focus for Onshore on: Investment in equipment, inventory, resources o Focus for Offshore on: EPRS Study complex scenarios Realistic emergency cases ranked by Risk Priority Index Frame Agreements to cut long response times Management of pipeline inventory: isolation & bypass vs. DECOMM/RECOMM Common point between Onshore & Offshore EPRS: Think Ahead 58
