Pipetech mobilised to Judy to unblock a 6” outfall line which could not be reached by conventional methods due to the pipework length and bend configuration.
Using Aqua Milling® specialist nozzles and rotational hose, Pipetech negotiated 8 bends to 64 metre reach at 950Barg working pressure.
A Specialist Cleaning team working along side platform production operators, utilised an available tie-in point on Judy main deck and Aqua Milled the 6” line to clear a problematic scale blockage. Previous alternative cleaning attempts only managed to unblock the final bend due to restricted underdeck line access.
Time constrained to remove a blockage at 40m within a 64m degasser outfall line utilising only one access point on main deck negotiating one bend prior to entering system.
6” line, 6” tie-in point, 64 metres in length, 8 directional changes
"Aqua Milling® technology is often the only alternative to replacing piping systems and is a fraction of the cost."
