Direct heating quadback for subsea flexible pipe

Heated Flexible Pipe

Our heated pipe technology provides operational peace of mind.

Description

With our heated pipe technology, you can stop worrying about wax and hydrate issues in your operations.

With a novel method for heating flexible pipes, we help you restart your production whenever you need by eliminating the critical cool-down window found in traditional, costly, time-sensitive, and potentially ineffective mitigation techniques. Just as importantly, our heated pipe has a compact footprint compared with other heating technologies.

Heated pipe uses the properties of a standard flexible pipe, which brings a range of benefits to any operation. The technology is factory acceptance tested and fully integrated yet completely standalone. The result is significantly lower as-installed, lifetime, and operational costs compared with competing technologies. The system is effectively operated as a coaxial cable, where electrical current is passed through the carcass and returned via the tensile armor layers.

Benefits

  • Increase operational flexibility in case of shutdown
  • Reduce operational cost—can be used in any system without any modifications

Uses

  • Prevents/removes hydrate plugs
  • Allows the transportation of viscous fluids across long distances
