TDW Offshore Services provides customized tools and services for isolation and plugging of pipelines, ranging from friction pigs to the SmartPlug® system.
The SmartPlug® tool is a remote-controlled, tetherless and piggable high-pressure isolation tool. It is designed to isolate a section of pipeline while at operating pressure. This enables pipeline repair without reducing pipeline pressure or bleeding down the entire pipeline system. The primary advantage to this system is its ability to minimize production down time.
