Paradigm Flow Solutions has implemented a new technology, Pipe-Pulse, to increase production in a North Sea field by over 3,000 barrels of oil per day.

The Pipe-Pulse technology is a remote, non-intrusive method of locating and removing blockages in long distance pipework and is designed to be connected to the topsides of the host platform either through the pig launcher or the umbilical termination unit to remove the blockages.

The unit releases high energy and volume pressure pulses into the pipeline or subsea umbilical, which helps remove blockages several miles away.
