Retrofitting Pigging Functionality in Unpiggable Pipelines
7 May 2019

Some pipelines cannot be thoroughly inspected or maintained, using standard operational pigs or In Line Inspection tools. This is counterproductive and may even be a pipeline safety and integrity non-compliance issue. 

This paper discusses a case study where DNV GL type approved, double block and bleed isolation technology, has been utilized to safely retrofit pigging facilities in a live pipeline system without affecting production.

Bakken Shale: North Dakota’s Growth Engine
25 April 2019

Nearly 10 years after the tidal wave known as the Bakken hit North Dakota, catapulting the state to the second most prolific oil producing state behind Texas and eclipsing production from historically oil-rich states such as Alaska, California and Oklahoma, the region continues to experience growing pains. 
 
As a result, companies are busying themselves trying to figure out how many expanded existing systems are needed and how many are designed for open markets. The result of this will be that more infrastructure will be built for all fuels.
