Paradigm Manager Rob Bain to Discuss Pipe-Pulse Use at Deepwater Intervention Forum

Paradigm Flow Solutions is using new technology to increase production for a supermajor by over 3,000 barrels of oil per day, revealing how it has cleared subsea pipelines that had been blocked for over a decade at the Deepwater Intervention Forum in Houston August 16th-18th.

Managing Director of Paradigm Flow Solutions Rob Bain will describe the project, which occurred this summer, at a conference lunch session sponsored by the company. The project unblocked multiple flowlines in the central North Sea field in less than one week’s time using Pipe-Pulse, a remote, non-intrusive method of locating and removing blockages in long distance pipe-work up to 30 miles. Blain will give his views on this major industry challenge, which can cripple production and outline opportunities for Pipe-Pulse in the Gulf of Mexico and beyond.

“Having previously worked for operators in the Gulf of Mexico, I believe there is a significant market opportunity for Pipe-Pulse in deepwater operations as it delivers dramatic cost savings,” Blain said. “In the case of chronic blockages which have gone unresolved over a number of years, the only solution has often been to replace the umbilical or pipeline which can cost millions of dollars, rendering it economically unviable.”
