Providing subsea pipeline remediation equipment, services and IP to the industry. The items indicated by the linked icons above are available as equipment or IP for licensing. In addition we develop new concepts and product, resulting in greater profitability for your company.
Subsea pipelines have wax in the oil plate out onto the bore of some pipelines, causing a restriction in the pipelines. This restriction reduces the pipe flow, and therefore the income from the pipelines. Over time the buildup increases until the bore can become completely blocked. This provides a special remediation challenge, as flow in the pipeline is blocked.
In other pipelines transporting primarily gas, water and gas can form hydrates, resulting in a type of crushed ice structure. When the hydrates form they can quickly block the pipeline, completely blocking the pipeline. Hydrates can take months to naturally melt, resulting is major pipeline losses. Some of our tools address this problem.
We provide equipment for both flow restricted and blocked pipelines, due to either wax or hydrates.
