Omnisens helps take the chill off Total's innovation-rich subsea flowline

Inline

Omnisens are checking the temperature of the Electrically Trace Heated Pipe-in-Pipe (ETH-PiP), the first of it's type in the world, which joins Islay field to the Forvie subsea hub in the North Sea.
The trace heating was introduced to ensure that during longer shut-downs, or during operation when the risk of hydrate formation is high, hydrates do not form and block the flowline.
The Omnisens system, an integral part of the pipeline, provides the information required to validate the heating function and also to control it.

Warming up Direct Electrically Heated Flowline in North Sea

Inline

Using Direct Electrically Heated flowlines helps avoid wax and hydrate formation. The heating cable is exposed to a variety of risks, including damage from anchors, dropped objects and unknown subsea risks.
"DEH Cable System Preventive Protection with Distributed Temperature and Strain Sensors" will be presented jointly with Statoil at IPC2012, Paper 90274, Thursday, September 27, 2012 14:00 PM-16:30 PM
