4 common problems associated with traditional pigging methods, and how to overcome them

21 August 2019

There are an abundance of reasons why regular pigging is advantageous - from cleaning out debris, water or oil, to executing preventative or corrective maintenance to ensure the integrity of a pipeline. 

Pigging is also often used in the pre-comissioning or decommissioning phases of a pipeline to prepare the line to receive oil or gas by removing the pre commissioning fluid (usually water) and replacing it with gas or glycol based fluids, or in the case of decommissioning, cleaning the line of hydrocarbons and debris to allow it to be decommissioned.

However with these benefits come an array of challenges associated with both mechanical and foam pigs, which are the most commonly used types, that can result in costly problems or prevent pigging from happening at all.

Is your wellbore clean up solution meeting your well’s needs?

14 February 2019

Okay, you’ve drilled your wellbore. Now all you have to do is tidy it up ahead of your cement job, install your completion and start producing. Right?


We know you’re keen to get to the production stage as soon as possible. We all are. But you’ve got to prepare your well properly first. And that means a thorough wellbore clean up after you’ve drilled and before you add your cement and casing.


If you don’t clean up your wellbore properly you could put yourself at risk of all kinds of problems further down the line. Extra logistics costs, well damage, increased non-productive time (NPT) and workovers. You might even lose your well.
