Offshore flare tip replacement without a helicopter

Shell Philippines contracted Conbit to replace the flare tip on their Malampaya offshore facility, in the West Philippine Sea.

The flare tip (weighing 4160 kg)  was replaced during the 2017 shutdown.

Shell approached Conbit because of our specialized flare-tip replacement service. Our highly experienced rope-access technicians and riggers have proved themselves to be readily adaptable to changing situations and weather conditions offshore.

Our mechanical flare tip replacement method, using our lightweight temporary lifting equipment, is a safer, more reliable and less costly alternative to a flare tip replacement using a helicopter.
