Pipe Restraining Systems Mandatory for British Columbia Well Services

The Gangline™ Pipe Restraining System is the solution to the new British Columbia well service restraint requirements.

To comply with recent changes in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) regulation in British Columbia, all Well Service Operators must now use pipe restraint systems that conform to new, more stringent OHS guidelines. The Gangline™ pipe restraint system was engineered for just such an application, providing peace of mind by protecting people, property, and profits. With Gangline™, well service compliance needs are covered. The new WorkSafe BC-published OHS guidelines for restraint of oil and gas piping systems state:

Employers need to ensure that the anchoring and restraint system will withstand the forces that could occur in the event of a failure of the piping system. An example of an adequate engineered restraint system is a purpose-built system composed of restraint and anchoring components which have been manufactured and engineered to be adequate for the operating pressures (OHS Regulation Guideline Part 23, Section 23.69[3]).

  • Made specifically for oil and gas operations, with the owner/operator in mind.
  • Professionally engineered
  • Lightweight, high-performing and flexible
  • Easy to install and use in sub-zero conditions
  • Hydrophobic: doesn’t absorb oil or water, is washable
  • UV-protected and corrosion resistant
  • Easily maneuvered for access for leak repair
  • Traceable by serialization and date of manufacture
  • Easily transportable; shippable world-wide

Our professionally-engineered design uses the highest quality materials to create the most durable, lightweight, and easy-to-use temporary pipe restraint system on the market.

Patented Pipe Restraint System Protects People & Profits in Oil Fields

Trinity Sling Authority ONG Market Place Article, October, 2015

The Gangline™ Pantented Pipe Restraint System is the dependable, go-to solution for restraining temporary pipelines and frack irons in oil fields.

The Gangline™ System is a professionally-engineered pipe restraining system designed to limit the whip range of the pipe should a catastrophic failure occur to the flow line or union connections. Brilliantly engineered, the Gangline™ System consists of only two parts: restraints and shackles. It offers a lightweight, high-strength installation solution for your peace of mind.

The Gangline™ System’s patented design uses the highest quality materials to create the most durable, lightweight and easy-to-use temporary pipe restraint on the market. Gangline™ restraints are installed in a leap-frog configuration. Each pipe section is secured by both the upstream and downstream sections of the pipeline in the event of a failure. The Gangline™ layout creates a choke on either side of a rupture, reducing in-line flowline movement as well as lateral (whip) movement. The Gangline™ System offers end-to-end restraint of flowlines for all lengths of pipe sections as well as swivels and joints.

The Gangline™ is an exceptional product with equally great service from Trinity Sling. “The system is one of the first on the market to be designed from the start as a restraint system, not something that was retrofitted or simply retagged to be a restraint system. “[Trinity Sling is] definitely the pioneer of dedicated restraint systems and I base that opinion on 15 years of pressure pumping experience along with 7 years in the HSE field,” comments Jim Richardson of Texas-based Mercer Well Service.

Every Gangline™ System is serialized and dated on durable waterproof tags. Gangline™ is traceable from end user through restraint fabrication back to original manufacturers and material lots. Gangline™ receives annual recertification and refurbishment from Trinity Sling. Gangline™ saves money with the fastest assembly and disassembly times in pressure pumping services. The innovative and simple design is trainable (Trinity Sling offers complete training to ensure the temporary pipeline is efficiently and accurately installed), inspectable and reliable. The Gangline™ System disassembles mid-flowline, allowing quick flowline refits and leak repairs.
