Case Study: Starling Pipe-in-Pipe Project

The use of pipe-in-pipe systems for the thermal insulation of pipelines is well established. Since 2004 Tata Steel has been the front-runner in delivering systems for pipe-in-pipe projects in the North Sea, including BP Rhum and Talisman Tweedsmuir.

The Starling project was the first development in which Tata Steel was able to supply a complete, engineered solution to Shell U.K. Limited, who operates the field on behalf of Shell and Esso Exploration and Production UK Limited.

Through close co-operation, Tata Steel was able to manufacture outer pipes which matched exactly the inner pipe lengths. This made it easier to achieve optimal matching of pipe lengths to create finished joint sections.
