Practical Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Remediation of Pipeline Blockages

Practical Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Remediation of Pipeline Blockages

One of the primary flow assurance challenges in the production of hydrocarbons is the prevention of pipeline blockages. Blockages can occur from a combination of improper system design, improper selection of piping and insulation materials, production chemistry aspects, inadequate or improper commissioning, startup and operating procedures, deviation from the proven operating procedures, changes in the operating conditions, intervention operations and improper maintenance procedures.
