Pipeline & Process Services

BlueFin’s Pipeline and Process segment focuses on integrity, maintenance and remediation solutions—from commissioning needs to flow assurance challenges.

All scopes, big and small, receive the same level of execution from our engineering and management support.

Our team has the professional know-how and portfolio to handle your pre-commissioning, decommissioning, cleaning, maintenance assessment, and general pigging challenge.

hydrostatic pressure testing

Hydrostatic Pressure Testing

Hydrostatic pressure testing remains an industry standard pre-commissioning and commissioning practice that is a heavily regulated requirement for all branches of the oil and gas industry. These requirements rest upon operating infrastructure such as transmission pipelines, production flowlines, inter-connecting process piping, and refinery components, to name a few—important arteries which enable the delivery and market availability of hydrocarbon energy. This network of delivery means that integrity is paramount for safety and proper system function.

BlueFin incorporates the best-controlled pressure equipment, the latest monitoring technology, and a strong bench of personnel talent combined with project history to deliver safe and successful hydrostatic pressure testing projects.

BlueFin also provides pipeline drying services. This solution is typically synonymous with pre-commissioning phases for new construction projects, however, routine maintenance, reclassifications, and system upgrades also demand drying attention. Dependent upon the end-use, pipeline assets demand specified dew point and penetration parameters that will ready the system for the intended hydrocarbon product. This pre-commissioning service is a critical-need activity that mandates application history expertise and confidence.

nitrogen services

Nitrogen Services

Liquid and gas nitrogen are transparent, odorless chemical elements that deliver beneficial applications due to its inert ability to replace air where oxidation is undesirable. This critical path use extends to commissioning, product evacuation, maintenance shutdown, leak testing, and general pigging operations. As a deliverable product nitrogen can be supplied through individual bottle rack cylinders or nitrogen generator units, where onsite supply and large quantities are required. If your SOW demands replacement of hazardous atmospheres, inert drying capabilities, integrity testing, or product evacuation, partner with our operations group to understand the complete benefits of nitrogen use.

pipeline cleaning

Flow Assurance & Pipeline Cleaning

BlueFin’s pipeline cleaning solutions deliver crucial benefits to current systems—upstream, midstream, and downstream. Through the delivery and refining of hydrocarbon energy processes, naturally occurring hydrocarbon byproducts such as scale, black powder, asphaltenes, and paraffin wax are normal constraints facing operators and causing a multitude of integrity issues, starting with flow assurance restrictions, structural integrity concerns, ILI determination, and product contamination, to name a few. Through the use of custom chemistry, advanced diagnostics, mechanical techniques, and field history BlueFin has the operational depth to solve your internal pipeline cleaning challenge and ensure flow assurance.


Pipeline Pigging & Cleaning

Pipeline pigging is a simple yet encompassing service title, one that signifies a critical-need service routinely performed by upstream, midstream and downstream operators on pipeline assets. Our technical competency solves routine problems demanded by today’s pipeline operations, from routine pigging, pipeline gel pigging, product evacuation, chemical cleaning, routine ILI support, solids and liquids removal, or general pig sales.

Solutions

  • Gel Pigs
  • Mechanical Pigs
  • Pig Tracking Support
  • Pig Sales
  • Online Cleaning
  • Internal Camera Inspection

Applications

  • Offshore Pipelines, Platforms
  • Onshore Pipelines, Facilities
  • Pre-Commissioning
  • Commissioning
  • Decommissioning
  • Routine Maintenance & Cleaning
  • Caliper Tool Inspection Support
  • Product Evacuation

Pipeline Deposit Mapping

BlueFin’s advantage in mapping internal pipeline deposits is deep and strong. Simply stated, we understand the need to maintain flow assurance. This critical path for operators became a focus for our engineers, and so the story continues. With our combination of electronic data acquisition BlueFin leverages the understanding of pressures anomalies with our specifically designed pipeline gel pigs to deliver deposit restriction data on your pipeline asset. Upon gaining this information a proper and secure path forward can be developed for remediation tasks. Now, what was once a guessing game is scientific understanding.

Solutions

  • Electronic Data Acquisition
  • Internal Pipeline Mapping
  • Measurement of solids and restrictions

Applications

  • Oil and Liquid Pipelines

pipeline decommissioning

Pipeline Decommissioning Services

Decommissioning operations have become highly regulated needs for oil and gas operators. While the rate of execution is fast-paced and schedule dependent, the return on investment lacks value for the operators incurring the economic risks. BlueFin understands this sensitivity. To supercede this challenge we deliver technical expertise and project experience in the fields related to government mandated overboard water regulations. By combining BlueFin’s Liquigel technology, our 35-year chemistry bench strength, and specific mechanical technicques into one solution, we have minimized project schedules for pipeline flushing routines by 50%. In the offshore market this technological feat equals fewer project dollars.


Solutions

  • Pipeline Flushing
  • Pipeline Filtration
  • Mechanical Pigging
  • Gel Pigging
  • Topside ICP Flushing
  • Nitrogen Purging

Applications

  • Offshore Pipelines
  • Offshore Platforms
  • Onshore Pipelines
  • Onshore Facilities

vessel cleaning

Vessel Cleaning

Vessels are the working organs of oil and gas infrastructure. Vessel functionality and process efficiency, however, can be greatly impeded by the deposition and buildup of both organic and inorganic solids within the internal components. These inefficiencies in process can cause unexpected shut-ins, product quality problems, and major integrity issues if not maintenanced.

BlueFin’s chemical index, mechanical techniques, and trademarked technology enable our technicians to remediate a multitude of system performance issues, specifically in the expertise of solids accumulation. Our unique high pressure lancing system penetrates and manifolds onto such enclosed vessels and allows the chemistry to perform the difficult work while our technicians operate the mechanical components.


Solutions

  • Chemical Treatment
  • Thermo-PAC

Applications

  • Decontamination
  • Solids Removal
  • Scale Removal
