Pipeline Research Limited are experts in the development and simulation service for various pipelines and pigging, including dual- and multi-diameter pigging. As an independent consultancy in the pipeline and pigging industry, we offer a number of different services catering to all your pigging needs, including:
- Design of seals, specialist pigs and general pig development;
- Data and pig test analysis;
- Design review of pigs for various applications to maximise efficiency and avoid issues;
- Avoiding getting pigs stuck;
- Pig motion and dynamic simulations;
- And more…
With a wealth of experience on a wide variety of development projects across the Oil and Gas industry, R&D, Pipeline design, product development and consultancy – Pipeline Research should be the obvious choice when it comes to quality advice and development of dual diameter pigging.
As specialists within the field, we aim to approach the subject of pigging with a scientific manner, using various models, observation and analysis, providing insight into the motion and function of the pig. The ability to pig various diameters of pipes can result in potentially massive savings for the operators.
We have a case study of dual-diameter pigging, which can be found on our case studies page, this goes through the issues that occur when dual diameter pigging and the pig becomes stuck at a weld. The case study closes with a potential solution to the many issues that may arise should this ever happen.
