Flexi-Coil - West Africa Project: Successful Wax removal from riser and flowline
An O&G operator in West Africa had a severely reduced flow path from a subsea well tieback due to heavy internal wax deposition in the pipeline and riser. The reduced flow path and high differential pressure resulted in shutting in the well and stopping production in order to attempt a remediation solution. Conventional methods were considered but deemed ineffective. Flexi-Coil proved to be the best solution and upon completion of the job provided immediate and sustainable production improvement.
