Do you have a pigging philosophy that needs to be developed or reviewed?
Would you like us to develop a pigging philosophy or strategy?
Maybe you need to run a HAZOP on pigging?
Whatever the case and complexity, we are here to help. Nexus Engineering has successfully provided its expertise to Petronas on the KanowitProject by writing the Pig Launcher retrieval, reload, re-installing and commissioning Procedures - for launching 4-pigs using Aker Solutions SAPL (Subsea Automated Pig Launcher). Gas flowing from KASS-A wells was choked and carefully diverted to launch 1-pig at a time. Our team also wrote the topside pig receiving and retrieval procedures. Nexus Commissioning Engineers were mobilized offshore (in Malaysia) to lead the pig launching operations.
Nexus has the capability in pre-commissioning, commissioning and in providing installation support for subsea pig launching systems.
For Deep-water applications pig launcher and receiver are both located on the topside facilities (FPSO). The launched pig passes through the flowlines and into the manifold(s) making its way back past the pigging loop and returning the pig into the topside located receiver.
Powered by people, steered by safety.
