Abstract: ADMA-OPCO produces oil from an offshore field in the Arabian Gulf, from where the oil is transported to an export terminal through a subsea pipeline system comprising a 30-in main oil line (MOL), a 24-in loop, and a 22-in spur line (see fig.1). Condition monitoring for the 30-in MOL revealed severe and widespread internal metal loss, together with hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC). This condition has increased the risk associated with operating the pipeline to an unacceptable level, dictating replacement of the pipeline on a short-term basis. The objective of this paper is to describe the integrity-management activities leading to the decision to replace the pipeline, and the corrosion-mitigation measures put in place to control operational risk until the pipeline is decommisioned.
