Pipeline Repair Connections (PCRS)

Our portfolio of pipeline repair connections meets your requirements for planned and unplanned pipeline intervention.

Complete solutions for compromised pipelines

We provide the engineering and hardware required to address issues from minor defects to catastrophic failures that result in adverse effects, both environmentally and economically.

Our integrated, turnkey coating removal, pipeline preparation, inspection, and repair solutions provide optimal results.

  • Deliver cost efficiency
  • Streamline activities
  • Maximize uptime
  • Ensure safe and timely flow assurance

Smart Flange Plus Connectors

Our field-proven connectors attach to and seal against the pipeline or riser to enable the safe completion of permanent subsea repairs, providing a robust, structural connection point subsea.

These connectors are capable of withstanding full pipeline axial, bending, and torsional loads while maintaining full line pressure integrity.

  • Used to complete thousands of repairs in shallow-water to ultra-deepwater applications
  • Eliminates the need for hyperbaric welding
  • ROV-operated hydraulic smart flange (HSF) connectors support diverless applications

Hydraulic Double Grip and Seal Connector

The hydraulic double grip and seal connector builds on the success of our field-proven technologies and delivers a solution for deepwater connections between existing subsea pipelines.

This connector’s design includes the internal components of two sets of our hydraulic smart flange connectors.

  • Suitable for deepwater applications
  • Provides a robust, structural connection

Smart Clamp

Our smart clamp helps you avoid costly shutdowns and expensive hyperbaric welding by repairing damaged or leaking pipelines with our diver-installable and diverless permanent repair clamp.

The smart clamp design, available in structural and non-structural versions, provides a permanent, high-quality seal, reinforcement, and pressure containment within the encapsulated area for the duration of the design life of the pipeline.

Smart Tap Fitting and Hot Tapping Services

Our smart tap fitting enables efficient operations with a flanged branch for hot tapping an existing pipeline and tying in a new, lateral pipeline.
  • Enables tie-in to existing an pipeline without a pipeline shutdown or hyperbaric welding
  • Permanent, high-quality seal suitable for design life of pipeline

B-CON Misalignment Ball Connector

The B-CON misalignment ball connector is designed to increase installation efficiency when working with piping and pipeline systems where misalignment of connecting pipe ends is a challenge.

The B-CON connector has performance characteristics and versatility that exceed those of welded pipe or conventional flanges. While primarily intended for subsea piping operations, the B-CON connector is a valuable piece of equipment in any application—topside or subsea—where misalignment is a concern.

  • Significantly reduces subsea pipeline connection installation time
  • Provides a leak-tight metal seal
  • Suitable for topside and subsea installation

Pressure-Balanced Breakaway Joint

Enabling planned and safe mechanical separation

  • Intentional separation protects pipelines from overloading
  • Prevents damage to such structures as platforms, risers, offshore tankers, and pipeline tie-ins
  • Provides a controlled release in unplanned situations

Smart Vent Safety System

Providing a cost-efficient solution to maximize the safety and efficiency of riser repairs

  • Field-proven solution
  • Vents hazardous vapors away from the workstation
  • Does not require flooding or purging the riser

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
