As a conclusion to Shell’s Pipeline Integrity Project, the inspection of the Penguins production pipelines in 2016 presented the opportunity to combine many of the lessons leaned over the previous 5 years of planning and executing similar inspections from a DSV.  The subsea launch and receive of the infield 10” Pipeline, and the subsea launch and platform receive of the 16” Pipeline each presented technical, safety and resource challenges.
