Pipeline Pigs
TDW Offshore Services has the unique ability to engineer, manufacture, and test pipeline pigs that solve multiple pipeline pigging challenges. By focusing on continual innovation in product development, TDW Offshore consistently increases pipeline pig performance and capacity.

TDW Offshore specializes in multi-diameter, multi-function pigs, and we are the leading designer and manufacturer of such pigs.

TDW Offshore’s pipeline pigs are often piggability-tested before installation to ensure the intended results. The following advantages are some of the benefits to our customers: • Allows the operator flexibility in new pipeline construction, including pigging systems for reduced bores, multi-diameter steps, varying valve bores and other non-full-bore line equipment. • Increased pipeline flow rates by removing wax and build-up in pipelines (some that were thought to be unpiggable) • Dependable low pressure pipeline isolation with simple (non-intelligent) systems • The ability to monitor pipeline pressure during low-pressure isolation projects • Minimized risk, and elimination of the cost of recovering stuck pigs by testing the pig before putting it into the pipeline • Reduced vessel, ROV and dive cost by providing the ability to track and locate pigs at a specific location in a pipelin

TDW Offshore has developed specialized pigs that are capable of pigging through wyes in multi-diameter lines while performing multiple functions based on project requirements. when installed in dual-diameter lines. In some cases these changes have been as severe as going from 10in to 16in in pipelines. often customized for use with chemicals and gels mulTi-DiAmeTer PiPelineS TDW Offshore specializes in providing pipeline pigs that are designed to pass through multiple pipeline diameters. and maintains a specialized workshop facility to develop and test customized high performance pigs.Testing pigs using a transparent pipe section. wax removal and fluid removal to restore maximum pipeline performance • Cleaning during decommissioning of pipelines. . scraper blades. or lack of. suitable for wet or dry pigging in the pipeline commissioning phase • Cleaning.

Pig TrAcking The SmartTrack™ system is TDW Offshore’s intelligent pipeline pig tracking system. This system allows pigs to be tracked onshore and offshore in both shallow and deep water. Each pig can be tracked using its own unique ID. 42-44” and 8-10”.A TDW Offshore-designed test rig at customer premises. These pigs are equipped with TDW Offshore’s electromagnetic communication system to assist positioning and monitoring of pressures during the isolation. Multi diameter pigs. The pig receiver and gauge pig no longer need to be recovered before hydrotest operations. TDW Offshore designs J-tube pigs that are specifically constructed to handle the multiple impact forces associated with this type of pigging application. 16” pig to pass large pipeline dent. . available for all of our pigs. using our proprietary electromagnetic communication system. high FricTiOn PigS FOr lOW PreSSure iSOlATiOnS High friction pigs are designed to isolate pipelines at low differential pressures. J-TuBe PigS In most cases J-tube pigs must be pulled through the J-tube instead of being pigged. 12x16” dual diameter flooding pig. PiPeline geOmeTry PigS The SmartGauge™ system allows the gauging status of the pipeline to be communicated through the pipeline wall. This reduces the scope of subsea intervention during pipeline commissioning. 24” standard batch pig.
