Pipeline Cleaning/Flow Assurance Services

The efficient operation of pipelines transporting liquid or gaseous hydrocarbons is crucial. Any upset to the internal pipe surface can significantly impact both pipeline throughput and energy requirements for maintaining design flow rates. Maintaining a clean pipeline will help to maximize flow, will increase system longevity, will enhance system reliability while lowering associated safety risks and will, ultimately improve bottom line profitability for pipeline owners and operators.

Throughout the operational life of pipelines, it is common to encounter deposits, including a build up of sand, scale, wax, asphaltenes, black powder, hydrates and emulsions which can create flow restrictions, bore reductions, higher back pressures and accelerated corrosion.
