Unpiggable

Unpiggable

The cleaning of high risk or unpiggable pipelines is at the heart of why SANCCUS liquid pipeline gels and solid gel pigs are such an incredibly useful tools for any operator to have in their armoury.

During their life times most assets will have to undergo a great deal of maintenance and modification and these modifications can often result in situations where there is multi diameter pipework or pigging facilities have been removed rendering many pipelines unpiggable.

Accumulation of debris or wax can also make the risk of conventional pigging so great that it cannot be undertaken without prior remedial treatments. Also it is common to clean a pipeline from subsea to topside using a vessel and a long narrow downline so clearly this is unpiggable.

SANCCUS SOLUTIONS

By combining SANCCUS pipeline gel technology with our extensive range of cleaning and remediation chemistries SANCCUS are able to offer field proven solutions to all of these most difficult challenges.

Our gel pigs can be deployed in the situation where it's not possible or too risky to deploy mechanical pigs. They are capable of extruding through bore restrictions and chokes down to half their diameter but will break up when the choke is more severe than this so the risk of gel pigs sticking in pipelines is near zero. They can also be chemically broken down if required.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Pipelines Range
Pipelines Range

Gel technology is very versatile and can be applied anytime during the lifetime of a field from helping to remove hydrotest fluids when commissioning to the bulk removal of hydrocarbons and solids prior to maintenance or when preparing a pipeline for responsible decommissioning.

M-Gel Pig
M-Gel Pig

M-Gel Pig is a highly flexible gel pig with shape memory used in situations where a mechanical pig cannot be applied. It is capable of extruding through chokes and restrictions up to 50% of its diameter and returning undamaged to its original size and shape once through.

Hyper Gel Pig
Hyper Gel Pig

Hyper Gel Pig is a highly flexible gel pig with shape memory which is specifically designed for use in environments of extreme temperature. This means that Hyper Gel Pig can be applied under extreme pipe conditions and can also be stored in very hot or very cold climates without damage.

Atlas Pig
Atlas Pig

Atlas Pig is a highly flexible gel pig with shape memory used in situations where a mechanical pig cannot be applied. It is also capable of withstanding pressures up to 600 barg for up to 72 hours. This allows Atlas Pig to be installed during pre-commissioning.

Mono Gel Pig
Mono Gel Pig

Mono Gel Pig is a pipeline pig made from a mixture of gelled monoethylene glycol and water. Having a melting point of around 30°C it is typically used in colder climates and as with all gel pigs it is used in situations where a mechanical pig cannot be.

Hydro Gel Pig
Hydro Gel Pig

Hydro Gel Pig is a pipeline pig made from a mixture of gelatine and water. Having a melting point of around 25°C it is typically used in colder climates and as with all gel pigs it is used in situations where a mechanical pig cannot be.
