Supporting our clients with customized project solutions is a key strategic objective for Serimax. In this respect, Serimax designed built and operated a fixed multi-jointing facility in Kuantan for the first deep water project with Shell in Malaysia. Stringent weld acceptance criteria meant that our challenge was to satisfy project schedule requirements through high productivity and optimized operational sequencing, while never compromising on weld quality. Serimax performed a total of 1150 welds on 8” to 12” pipes with wall thicknesses between 20.6 and 25.4mm, achieving repair rates under 1%. The offshore J-Lay operations of the pre-fabricated multi-joints onboard the Sapura 3000 are currently ongoing.
