ADVANCED PIPELINE AND RISER INTERVENTION

Unpiggable Pipelines


The cleaning or unblocking of unpiggable pipelines presents unique challenges which require innovative solutions; Flexi-Coil delivers with a low cost, platform based solution.

Flexi-Coil

  • Ability to traverse multiple 5D bends in pipeline systems.
  • Lightweight and flexible pipe, reduces capstan friction, reducing corner entry and exit loads.
  • Allows passage through significantly more complex riser paths than conventional coiled tubing.
  • Reduces risk of pipeline loading and abrasion in contrast with conventional coiled tubing packages
  • Can be deployed within down-rated systems or where integrity of the line is unknown such as during pipeline decommissioning. You can find out more on our decommissioning capabilities here.
  • A lightweight and modular skid design allows for deployment in congested laydown areas and remotely from riser tie-in. Flexi-Coil has previously been deployed successfully on both FPSOs and platforms.
