Thermal Insulation - Subsea - Trelleborg Offshore

Thermal Insulation

Thermal insulation is necessary to avoid formation of hydrate plugs and wax build-up in subsea structures. The build-up begins when the oil or gas composition temperature is not maintained and begins to cool. Without thermal insulation the cold seawater rapidly cools down the oil, forming hydrate or wax blockages making it impossible for a safe flow.

High level performance for world’s first subsea gas compression facility


Located on the Halten Bank in the Norwegian Sea, about 200 km from mid-Norway, Åsgard is a central hub and a significant oil and gas producer. It is also the first field in the world to use seabed gas compression. The decision to adopt this new technology on the Åsgard field is expected to maintain production and an increased recovery equivalent to approximately 278 million in barrels of oil when the project is realized.
