ICR Integrity (ICR), a global provider of integrated maintenance and integrity solutions to the oil and gas, power, chemical, nuclear and renewables industries, has signed a renewal agreement for its Quickflange™ service with Apache Corporation’s North Sea subsidiaries.
Quickflange™ is ICR’s high-performing, patented technology for permanent weldless flange to pipe connections. The solution combines a modified standard ASME B16.5 weld neck flange with a hydraulic tool, which is quick to mount and requires no hot work or welding.
Lindsay Thomas, Head of Sales – Quickflange™ at ICR, says, “We have a long-standing relationship with Apache that dates back to 2009. We were initially awarded a contract extension in 2017 and re-bid for the work last year and we’re delighted to have been successful again. This renewal is a testament to the relationship we have with Apache, but also the quality of our Quickflange™ product and customer service.”
“Quickflange™ offers clients permanent repair options without the need for shutdowns or hot work permits, making it a cost effective and efficient way of performing repairs. The technology has a long-standing track record, particularly in the North Sea, but we’re now seeing a growing demand for solutions onshore, out with the traditional oil and gas sector and also in our international locations,” Thomas adds.
ICR Integrity Ltd (ICR) is a leading provider of integrated maintenance, repair and production solutions for the global energy industry, with locations in UK, UAE, USA, Norway and a JV partner in Australia.
