The T-SEP Assembly: Stampede, Leviathan, Vito & More

by | May 21, 2019 | Pneumatic Tube Supports, T-SEP

The T-SEP Assembly is widely accepted as the preferred tube clamping method for major offshore projects. Most recently, the T-SEP Assembly was specified as the preferred tube clamping method for the Amarata Hess Stampede, Noble Leviathan, and Shell Vito projects. In addition, the T-SEP was utilized on the Statoil Peregrino project and is currently a clamping option on the BP Mad Dog II project. We take great pride in the confidence that has been granted to the T-SEP Assembly and have received great feedback from installers and engineers alike regarding the install process.

“We had zero issues with your product. Personally, it’s one the best assemblies I’ve used on any project.”

The T-SEP’s reputation began with other projects that PFS continues to take great pride in. Notably:

  • Shell: Auger, Ram Powell, Nakika, Appomattox
  • Chevron: Bigfoot, Jack/ St. Malo, Tahiti, Wheatstone
  • BP: Thunderhorse
  • Anadarko: Constitution, Marco Polo, Heidelberg, Holstein, Boomvang

“I love the T-SEP concept and will utilize it as much as possible”

Several years have passed since some of these platforms have been subjected to the harsh offshore environment and PFS has yet to receive ANY negative feedback regarding the performance of the T-SEP’s. In fact, it is evidenced by the repeated use that the T-SEP has performed to the desired standard. PFS has gained an abundance of experience in working closely with engineers and installers on these projects. We are proud to now offer T-SEP mounting capabilities for channel tray, ladder tray, stud mounted (SLP), tray side wall mounted (PTCB) and even free mounted in a “sandwich” configuration (flat bar on top and bottom). Of course there are other scenarios where the T-SEP can be mounted, but these are done on a case-by-case basis in the design phase.

Every new project is treated as another opportunity to expand on the T-SEP capabilities. The T-SEP will always be an evolving assembly as new ideas, configurations and mounting scenarios emerge. The challenge is always welcomed and met with vigilant attention to detail.
