Unconventional Intervention

CONTROLLED ENTRY INTO AREA WITH TRAPPED PRESSURE

Hot tap equipment is used to safely determine if pressure exists in oilfield equipment when conventional methods to check for pressure is not possible. Typical equipment where hot taps are performed includes a casing, production tubing, drill pipe, coiled tubing, valves, flanges, and bull plugs. When access is achieved through a hot tap, the pressure can safely be contained for monitoring, bleed off, or kill operations. Our equipment is rated for 0-15,000psi.
