Gabon Sealine Replacement Project

14 October 2015

A.Hak International was commissioned by Shell to install two 22 "export pipelines for the Gabon Sealine Replacement Project. The new lines connect the Gamba Terminal to a Pipeline End Manifold (PLEM) for the coast of Gabon. The project ensures Gabon’s energy exports and is of much importance for the economic development of the region.

The existing 30 "export pipeline will be replaced by a closed system of two 22" pipelines with so-called pigging facilities. This new situation will make maintenance and inspection much easier and more efficient.

The project site was located about 600 kilometres from the civilized world and was only accessible by air and water. This, off course, was taken into account in the preparation of the project. So additional revision sets prevented any delay that might arise. Although the project site was very difficult to access, the project team had also to deal with wild animals. Colleagues reported several elephant sightings. Take a look at this video.

Drawing from years of experience with working on the most diverse locations A.Hak International, even in these circumstances, made sure the various activities were finished on time and to full satisfaction of the customer. A.Hak International will continue its work in the coming months to finish altogether.
