Pigging for Pipeline Efficiency The purpose of operational pigging is to obtain and maintain efficiency of the pipeline to be pigged. The pipeline’s efficiency depends on two things: first, it must operate continuously, and second, the required throughput must be obtained at the lowest operating cost. Pipelines are pigged for many reasons. In crude oil […]
Suggested Pigging Pressures & Flows Notes: Volumes and pressures are approximate and guidelines only. These are not to be considered as absolute requirements. Requirements will vary according to type of pipe, fluid, materials in the pipe, viscosity, temperature, and type of pig.
