"U" Stamped Pig Launchers & Pig Receivers
(September 5th 2008)
PE has recently received the Certificates of Authorisation, Division 1 ("U" Stamp), Division 2 ("U" Stamp) from ASME, allowing us to certify our pressure vessels and rapid opening closures in accordance with the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.
Following receipt of this certification we have now completed our first "U" stamped pig launchers and pig receivers.
These pig launchers and pig receivers are both 6" x 10" Class 600# and fitted with our own Rapid Opening Closures. They are being supplied as part of the Umm Shaif Gas Injection Facility Project; a $1.6 billion facility in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
This project will allow the complete redevelopment of the Umm Shaif Gas field by significantly increasing the gas injection rates to 3,000 million standard cubit feet of high pressure gas per day. This gas injection will result in an increase in oil production by an average of 50,000 barrels per day from 2010.
