INTERTEK has wrapped up a £600,000 calibration services contract for Oil Search on its Papua New Guinea export pipeline

Intertek vice president of Exploration and Production Raymond Pirie said the company calibrated the provers at the Central Processing Facility in the Southern Highlands Province and the Kumul Marine Terminal in the Papua Gulf for Oil Search.

“We utilised equipment and expertise from our Aberdeen operation, overcoming many logistical challenges to access the more remote areas of the country.”

The crude oil pipeline is 170km long and carries hydrocarbons from the Central Processing Facility at Kutubu to the Kumul Marine Terminal.
