Pipeline owners and operators are constantly looking to improve operational safety and reduce time and costs during pipeline maintenance and repair. STATS BISEP® developed more than a decade ago provides industry-first, leak-tight double block and bleed isolation technology for temporary line plugging, offering a leak-tight seal every time. Traditionally, operators use multiple split tee fittings and lip seal line stopping equipment or temporarily suspend pipeline operation to allow for necessary repair or maintenance activities to take place safely. The BISEP offers significant safety advantages over traditional line stop technologies and can be deployed through a single hot tap intervention while production is maintained through an integrated bypass, avoiding interruption to production and reducing costs, without compromising safety. The webinar will explain the hydraulic deployment and setting of the plugging head, seal testing and verification process. The webinar will conclude by highlighting the key advantages of the BISEP and how it can be integrated within an operator’s existing fleet of hot tapping and isolation equipment for maximum cost efficiency. It is expected that attendees will be able to incorporate learnings from this webinar into their upcoming pipeline maintenance or repair projects and provide valuable options that avoid temporarily shutting down the pipeline.
