The Scope of this proposal is to design, manufacture and trial (laboratory and field) tools to improve repair activities on gas risers in MOBs.

The output would consist of a consumable split sleeve repair kit tested in both a laboratory and field environment.

The Project seeks to prove that the currently conceptual approach to the problem is able, through trialling, to demonstrate that offers a viable, cost effective and less customer disruptive alternative to repairing/replacing gas risers.

The Project can be considered a success if, upon completion of work:

  • The product has demonstrated capability of performing the desired task

  • Feedback from the GDN engineers involved in the final stages of the project do not prohibit the further roll-out of the solution into normal working practice.
