InnerVue™ Non-Intrusive Pipeline and Wellbore Diagnostics

Profile and locate pipeline and wellbore deposits quickly and safely via non-intrusive pressure wave analysis  

The InnerVue™ Diagnostics Service is a low risk, fast and accurate technique used to detect flow inefficiencies caused by deposits such as wax or hydrates, stuck pig or tool and leaks / illegal hot-taps. A pressure wave is created at one end of the pipeline which travels at the speed of sound through the medium in the pipeline or wellbore. Without the need for intrusive intervention, the InnerVue service interprets pressure waves reflecting from changes in the internal diameter of the pipeline or wellbore and extrapolates these pressure reflections into deposit profiles or blockage and leak locations.

The InnerVue service has been successfully deployed across the world both in pipelines and wellbores to profile pipelines during pigging campaigns, locate lost inline inspection tools and verify top of cement depth, as well as many other scenarios. It allows operators to survey systems in a safe and cost-effective manner without having to stop production, risk inserting tools into the system, or investing in costly intervention campaigns.

Pipeline benefits:

  • Optimized planned pipeline remediation
  • Increased confidence in success prior to running a maintenance pig
  • Evaluate and track maintenance operations, such as a chemical cleaning program
  • Make better decisions regarding high-risk pipelines
  • Conduct comparative or baseline surveys during pre-commissioning
  • Detect an unknown pipeline feature (tee, wye)
  • Locate and quantify leaks
  • Report and recommendation on pipeline diagnosis and analysis from Halliburton experts

Well benefits:

  • Increased confidence in the condition of the casing/tubing before P&A operations
  • Eliminates the need for a wireline run to locate top of cement
  • Eliminates the need for a top side set-up change for wireline to assess casing wall profile / top of cement location
  • Reduced risk of stuck tool in the well
  • Conduct comparative or baseline surveys to assess chemical program effectiveness

Summary Summary InnerVue™ PipeSuite Diagnostics Service
The InnerVue™ PipeSuite Diagnostics Service is a non-intrusive solution for profiling deposits and locating leaks or blockages along the length of pipelines. It can be used to baseline a pipe during pre-commissioning, to monitor the line conditions before, during and after a cleaning operation, and to diagnose leaks or blockages.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ WellSuite Diagnostics Service
The InnerVue™ WellSuite Diagnostics Service is a non-intrusive solution for wellbore analysis. The service can be used to detect top of cement or top of plug location, evaluate deposition on casing or tubing walls and locate any leaks in the casing, tubing or annular space.
Summary Summary Pipeline & Process Services Application
Halliburton Pipeline and Process Services is unique within our industry as being the only company that can provide the complete range of services required for a major precommissioning project or major shutdown from our own in-house personnel and equipment resources.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ PipeSuite Survey Accurately Predicts Stuck Pig Location Within 0.4%
Halliburton Pipeline and Process Services was contracted to conduct InnerVue™ PipeSuite surveys on a 16-in. crude oil pipeline located 125 miles offshore in the Gulf of Thailand. The objective of the survey operation was to locate the position of a pig mandrel stuck in the pipeline.
Summary Summary Operator Quickly Diagnoses Root Cause of Back Pressure in Pipeline
The operator of a crude oilfield located in the Bombay Offshore Basin, 60-90km from Mumbai, India, needed to get to the root cause of pipeline back pressure that was adversely impacting production, by greater than 25% throughput reduction, after months of pipeline flow deterioration.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ PipeSuite Diagnostics Accurately Predicts Stuck Pig Location
The customer was experiencing a stuck pig in its pipeline, located in North Dakota. This occurred during a routine pigging operation, when a cup pig got stuck in the pipeline—most likely due to the accumulation of paraffin wax in front of the pig.
Summary Summary Pipeline Operator Gains Key Information on Severe Wax Deposits in Critical Pipeline
The operator of an 8-inch subsea oil production pipeline, running in daisy-chain fashion from Crathes to the Kittiwake platform in the North Sea, experienced severe pipeline restrictions caused by paraffin wax deposits.
Summary Summary Halliburton Pigging Campaign Uses InnerVue™ PipeSuite Diagnostics Service for Efficient Was Removal
An offshore rig owned and operated by a major operator near Sakhalin Island faced a complex clean-out of their multi-phase export pipeline due to a “stuck pig” incident – just 40 days after the Berkut platform began production. This incident was caused by a build-up of hydrates and wax during the very first operational pig run.
Summary Summary Operator Efficiently Resolves Pigging Complications During Offshore Pipeline Wax Removal
The operator of an offshore UK 8-in condensate export pipeline running from the Lomond platform to the CATS platform in the North Sea was initially dealing with restrictions caused by wax buildup—common to many condensates containing dissolved waxes that can precipitate and deposit under certain environmental conditions.
Summary Summary Operator Uses Pressure Wave Technology to Accurately Locate Stuck Tool in High-Risk Pipeline
An operator in South Texas was losing valuable production uptime due to an intelligent inspection tool being stuck in one of its pipelines transporting ‘supercritical’ ethylene—at a temperature and pressure above its critical point.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ WellSuite Diagnostics Accurately Detects Restrictions in Horizontal Well
A multiphase producing well in Vaca Muerta field in the Neuquen province of Argentina was producing sand from a perforated zone in the well’s horizontal section. After about six months of production, the sand was causing a partial blockage in the wellbore and responsible for production inefficiencies.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ WellSuite Survey Precisely Locates Blockage
Halliburton Sakhalin Limited was contracted by a Major Operator to perform a InnerVue™ WellSuite survey in annular space between the 9-5/8-in. and 7-in. casings. This annulus was being used in normal operation to inject water into the waste disposal well (WDW)—located at the wellsite in the remote region of northeastern Russia.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ PipeSuite Surveys Used for Comparative Analysis
Two InnerVue™ PipeSuite surveys were carried out onboard the offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The first survey operation was to establish a baseline of the wax deposition accumulated inside a 12-in. export oil pipeline—running from the platform out to the Gathering ‘Y’ tie-in.
Summary Summary InnerVue™ Non-Intrusive Pipeline and Wellbore Diagnostics
The InnerVue™ Diagnostics Service is a low risk, fast and accurate technique used to detect flow inefficiencies caused by deposits such as wax or hydrates, stuck pig or tool and leaks / illegal hot-taps.
