KUALA LUMPUR (June 11): Ria Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd has been awarded a contract by Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) to provide 1,400m of a flexible piping system to replace and enhance the safety on the PFLNG Satu, a floating offshore LNG facility in the Kanowit field off the coast of Sarawak.

The elastopipe, which is produced by Norwegian-based Vipo, will be used to replace the main fire foam ring, part of the existing fire water system that will be undergoing upgrades to increase reliability and protection of assets, according to a report by the LNG Industry portal.

According to the portal, the system can be used in a myriad of applications such as deluge and sprinkler systems, utility and drain water systems, as well as nitrogen distribution systems.

"Elastopipe is a patented flexible piping system developed for transporting a variety of fluids and is known for its corrosion-free, explosion, impact, and jet fire resistant properties.

"Installation requires no hot work and once fitted, it is virtually maintenance-free with a lifetime of over 30 years," they said.

Ria Solutions, which was founded in 2003, specialises in providing inspection consultancy services, non-destructive testing, corrosion engineering, and asset integrity management services to the oil and gas, petrochemical, utility, fabrication and construction industries, according to the report.
