The problem faced was to provide a sealing solution on a heat exchanger where certain restrictions were in place. Several years had passed since the bundle was last pulled, the concern over the service was that corrosion may be present on the flanges inspection had not been determined. The site had become congested since it was first installed which reduced the available movement of the bundle. Shutdown would be extended if floors had to be cut out, the exchanger dropped and rerouted to the edge of the platform. There were several unknowns; documentation on what had been done last time was sketchy, along with its location in the North Sea with climatic issues. The platform itself had replaced a facility which is remembered in history for major loss of life.
