Prevent Hydrate Formation
Looking for cost-effective technologies that prevent hydrate formation, alternative to the chemical approach, suitable across a variety of Oil&Gas scenarios, and optimized to the implementation as a retrofit on existing flowlines.
Detect Hydrate Plug
Reliable technologies able to localize a hydrate plug (to be also intended as a restriction) into the flowline, where a multiphase fluid is flowing. Potentially this technology can or not operate on a continuous base and should not interfere with the data acquisition system and eventually be applied from a convenient site (ie. land point for offshore pipelines).
Looking for solutions and equipment for heating a piece of pipeline (meters level), containing a hydrate plug with the aim to solve it and preferably prevent it from occurring again.
Access to a worldwide network and to deep expertise and knowledge of the industry
Collaboration with leaders of the industry
Potential for procurement relationship
Prevent the occurrence of hydrate plugs preferably without resorting to chemical injection
Preferably identify precise hydrate(s) position inside the flowline/tubing. And if so, validate & demonstrate it
The solution shall be considerate of economic terms, ease of usage and flexibility
