What is Hot Tap and LineStop?

Hot taps are typically used as a tie-in point for new piping, but are also often performed as a means to deploy instrumentation without shutdown. They are frequently performed as an essential step in preparation for linestop. Successful linestops are the key to continued safe and effective operations of platforms, pipelines, and process facilities.

A single linestop can be used to stop and abandon a shutdown. Two or more linestops can be used in tandem to isolate and bypass many intersecting lines at once. Fluid in the line is bypassed, leaving a workable dead section to alter, repair or add a valve while the line remains in service.

The Economics Of Hot Tap

In this article, ION Pro explains that pipeline upgrades, maintenance, and emergency repairs are all critical aspects. It needs to be planned for and executed on a regular basis. These can lead to a loss in production due to shutdown procedures and has a significant financial impact. Any approach that allows for the minimization of these losses needs to be thoroughly evaluated and investigated. Go to article.
