When the operators of Libya's Zella74B field were researching the installation of an injection line for corrosive water, a solution was needed that could withstand high temperatures and dusty, uncompromising conditions. Something that could be deployed quickly and easily by local staff. A pipeline network that was low maintenance and built for the long term.
They found their solution in a SoluForce pipeline system that comprised SoluForce Heavy H515 pipes and end-fittings, plus the use of an advanced electrofusion system. The 8,800 metre pipeline was installed in record time. Given the specified operating pressure of 1500 psi, the system was hydro-tested at 2000 psi for 24 hours and 2300 psi for four hours. It passed easily and continues to perform to specification.
