Constructor’s Pipe carousel enhances Statoil’s onshore storage


Case Study Overview

Customer: Statoil

Products/Services used: Cantilever Racking installed on Mobile Bases

Business need:
Statoil stores workover risers (13-metre-long pipes) at a warehouse  complex in Vestbase, Norway. These pipes are used at offshore oil drilling stations, connecting the rigs to the drilling heads.

At Statoil’s warehouse complex, these bulky and costly pipes were stored in a number of areas. This presented challenges when moving the pipes as there was no uniform storage solution, and no uniform method of preparing them for transport to the rigs.

This arrangement was time-consuming and problematic – especially when periodic inspections were carried out on the pipes in storage.

Dexion solution:
Statoil has a long-standing relationship with Dexion, spanning a quarter of a century. Many storage solutions have been provided to Statoil

during this time, many of them at their warehouse site in Vestbase.

A Cantilever Racking System, installed on Mobile Bases, offered Statoil a systematic handling and maintenance solution for these pipes.

About Statoil:
