Suretank, the world’s leading provider of engineered solutions to the offshore oil and gas industry, has delivered a shipment of three DNV 2.7-3 certified offshore chemical tanks to IKM Testing in Norway.

The three 20 foot chemical tanks used a completely new design and will be used to store MEG (Monoethylene Glycol) for Statoil on North Sea Giant for the Åsgard Subsea Compression Project

The chemical tanks were part of a larger project with production schedules governed by very strict deadlines provided by IKM Testing who were responsible for managing the fulfilment of all requirements for Statoil.

Phillip Murphey, Director of Customer Care at Suretank said, “This project was extremely demanding because of the timeframes involved and the fact that the tanks were a completely new design meant that teamwork was crucial in the successful delivery of the job. Our engineering, customer care and production departments worked closely with IKM Testing to ensure that milestones were achieved on time and we provided regular reporting to assist in their overall project management.”

IKM Testing visited Suretank HQ in Dunleer to approve the final job prior to despatch and signed off the final acceptance documentation with zero issues to close out production ahead of delivery.

Commenting on the project, Christopher Strøm Sundvor Project Manager of IKM Testing said, “We were thrilled with the professionalism that Suretank exhibited during this project. We were working with numerous suppliers, all providing different elements of the requirements for our end customer. Working with a reliable and trustworthy business like Suretank allows us to simply focus on the management and delivery of the entire project, the open and honest communication from their customer care team was excellent and the final product quality is market leading.”
