T.D. Williamson (TDW), a world leader in pipeline services and equipment, announced that it has signed a global pipeline intervention and isolation services contract with BP.

Activities covered by the agreement include hot tapping and STOPPLE® plugging, as well as SmartPlug® pressure isolation. The three-year contract earned by TDW is one of only four such contracts awarded worldwide by BP.

“We are extremely excited to extend our relationship with BP,” said Bruce Thames, senior vice president and chief operations officer for TDW. “Each year, TDW technicians safely perform thousands of line interventions and isolations for customers around the globe. As a result, TDW is uniquely positioned to serve the needs of BP and to lead the development of best practices throughout our industry.”

This contract marks a significant achievement as the culmination of work with supplier engagement and evaluations. Safe isolations are important across BP’s operations for works such as valve replacement and for plant/platform shutdowns. All of the suppliers have committed to a programme of continuous improvement and developing best practices leading to industry guidelines.

Founded in 1920, TDW delivers safe integrity solutions for onshore and offshore applications. Experts provide hot tapping and STOPPLE® plugging, pipeline cleaning, integrity inspection, pigging and non-tethered plugging, and pig technology services for any pressurized pipeline system in the world.
