Subsea 7 has won the 2010 Pipeline Industries Guild (PIG) Award for Subsea Pipeline Technology at the 53rd PIG National Dinner held in London.

The award has been given for the manufacture and operation of a new deepwater diverless pipeline repair system that was used to repair a damaged 12in water injection pipeline in 1,350m water depth in the Girassol field located in block 17, offshore Angola.

The pipeline repair system, developed in-house by Subsea 7, can be used in a range of life-of-field applications, as the equipment and technology are fully transferable.

The PIC award promotes new ideas in the field of pipeline technology and recognises significant contributions to subsea pipeline technology.
