HOT TAPPING SERVICE

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Hot tapping is a method of employing an under pressure drilling machine to cut a hole in an operating pipeline or storage vessel which allows for a new branch connection from the existing pipe or vessel without any interruption to the flow.

 

Line stopping is a procedure that temporarily stops flow in a operating pipeline without depressurizing or purging, so that the isolated section of pipe can be repaired, replaced or altered.
