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.
- Increase operational flexibility in case of shutdown
- Reduce operational cost—can be used in any system without any modifications
- Prevents/removes hydrate plugs
- Allows the transportation of viscous fluids across long distances
