About the Cover
 
THE COVER PICTURE shows one of the SmartPlug isolation tools recently used by TDW Offshore Services for Shell UK Ltd in the N Sea. Shell’s two new gas production platforms in the Shamrock and Caravel fields were tied-in to the existing 20-in diameter pipeline system in the Corvette field. Stavanger-based TDW hydrotested the tie-ins to 375bar, understood to be the highest pipeline pressure ever isolated by the company, following more than 120 pressure isolation projects it has completed worldwide.
