HOUSTON, Feb. 22, 2024/PRNewswire/ -- ODYSEA announced Subsea7's successful offshore installation of approximately eleven kilometers of deepwater pipelines utilizing ODYSEA's innovative Goldilocks (GDLX™) insulation technology, enabled by ExxonMobil's Proxxima™ thermoset polyolefin resin systems. This industry-leading project was completed without safety incidents and ahead of schedule, while demonstrating exceptional performance.

ODYSEA CEO Tanmay Desai describes Goldilocks insulation as “an innovative and revolutionary technological solution for pipelines, field joints and subsea structures that enables a much faster, safer and high-quality thermal insulation system.”

ODYSEA applied the insulation to the flowline and risers for a major global energy customer in the Gulf of Mexico and installed it in deepwater by Subsea7's Seven Oceans reel lay vessel.

GDLX™ is a moldable thermal insulating coating for pipelines, field joints and subsea structures. Using a unique molding process, ODYSEA is able to offer a solution that significantly reduces the complexity of a time-consuming multi-layer process. The solution is highly portable, which can enable in-situ isolation anywhere in the world. The technology has been proven to generate less waste and allows customers to get their first oil sooner due to the ability to insulate pipes faster than traditional insulation.

The technology behind GDLX™ is made possible by ExxonMobil's Proxxima™ resin system, a thermoset polyolefin with super-low viscosity and controllable rapid cure. ExxonMobil's Proxxima™ resin systems have an exceptional balance of strength and hardness, are highly resistant to temperature and pressure, have no depth limitations, and are extremely hydrophobic, resisting water absorption that could otherwise damage properties. of isolation. These factors make GDLX™, enabled by the Proxxima™ resin system, an excellent choice for subsea insulation projects.

This Gulf of Mexico project required specific and extensive validation, which ODYSEA met through the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) process, multiple customer tests and now through successful project execution. GDLX™ has proven its strength and reliability in laboratory tests to meet customer expectations in high pressure and high temperature projects.

“The successful adoption of this new insulation technology was made possible by our collective commitment to innovation, as well as rigorous testing that ensured project certainty and timely delivery,” said José Manuel Torres, SCM Technology Manager at Subsea7.
