Project Name: Nam Con Son Pipeline Project
Customer: BJ Process and Pipeline Services
End Customer: BP (Vietnam)
Propipe Limited supplied 26”articulated pigs to BJ Process and Pipeline Services – Vietnam for commissioning the 372km Nam Con Son gas pipeline. The 26” articulated pigs were developed for the pigging of a subsea wye piece, during flooding, cleaning and dewatering operations. Because the pig was required to endure stopping and starting operations the pig needed to weigh less than conventional pigs in order to prevent seal damage. A new design of articulated wire rope & polyurethane joint was developed to withstand twice the calculated load and to reduce the pig weight.
