LOCATE BLOCKAGES, STUCK PIGS IN FLOWLINES AND PIPELINES
We believe that the accurate location of a flow obstruction is the first step in the engineering of an effective solution to the problem. Getting reliable data in subsea pipeline infrastructure throws up a number of challenges due to the inaccessibility of equipment and cost of DSV supported solutions.
- Facilitated by Pipe-Pulse®
- Cost effective
- Locates paraffin wax, hydrate, asphaltene and stuck pig blockages in pipelines and flowlines accurate up to 1m/1km
- Effective up to 100km
North Sea Case History
A major UKCS Operator experienced a stuck pig in an export pipeline. Pressure & volume analysis indicated a range of 4-9km from the platform; Find-Block® was mobilised to reduce the error margin ahead of an intervention campaign and correctly identified location as being 15.6-15.7km from the host facility subsequently allowing installation of a bypass.
