Technip has been awarded the 2010 Global Pipeline Award in the field of Pipeline Transportation during the International Pipeline Conference in Calgary, Canada, for its Subsea Cryogenic Pipe-in-Pipe Pipeline Transfer System (C-PiP).
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers International (ASME) Global Pipeline Award was presented to Technip by members of the Pipeline Systems Division, a division of the International Petroleum Technology Institute (IPTI). This prestigious award acknowledges outstanding innovations and major technological advances in the field of pipeline transportation.
Technip began development of the C-PiP Pipeline Technology in 2004, earned proofof- concept certification by ABS and BV in 2006, and fitness-for-service certification from DNV in 2008. Technip is currently designing or has assessed the potential for C-PiP Pipeline applications in several projects.
The award application featured the design for the Hess LNG Weaver’s Cove Energy project in Fall River, Massachusetts. Technip’s C-PiP technology was selected for this liquefied natural gas import terminal project based on its superior safety and reliability features. The C-PiP LNG transfer system was engineered to address the specific challenges of this project’s location and is currently proposed for the 4.25- mile (6.8 km) long offshore berth.
