By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 2 -- Shell UK Exploration & Production, operator of Goldeneye field in the Outer Moray Firth area of the UK Central North Sea, has successfully completed precommissioning 101 km of 20-in. export pipeline and 4-in. mono-ethylene glycol pipeline from the field to its St. Fergus, Scotland gas plant.

Halliburton Energy Services, a business unit of Halliburton, performed the work through its Pipeline and Process Services product service line.

Work included flooding, cleaning, gauging, high pressure flushing, and hydrotesting the pipelines from onshore to enable their transport of gas and condensate from the field to the plant.

Saipem UK installed the two pipelines simultaneously, using its Castoro Sei pipelay vessel in water 120 m deep.
