EELREEL® Pipeline Flow Improvement Services

The perfect extended reach solution to clear partially or fully plugged flow lines

The CETCO eelReel® is a ground-breaking patented technology, used in conjunction with coil tubing, to completely clean flow lines to the full ID of the pipe at distances greater than 30,000 ft.

The eelReel® enables access to flow lines thought to be inaccessible or unpiggable. The eelReel® is utilized offshore where lines are unpiggable to due to plugging, stuck pigs, or architecture (platform to pipeline, subsea flow lline to platform). Pig receivers and pig launchers are not required. Onshore, the eelReel® is utilized to remove blockages that are not readily accessible by the “dig and cut” method, such as populated areas, mountainous regions, jungles and under river and lake crossings.

The eelReel® is capable of being bundled with other CETCO products to manage, recycle or discharge wastes generated during the cleaning process. Providing a comprehensive solution reduces overall project costs and minimizes the potential for environmental impact. CETCO eelReel® applications are currently limited to flow lines of 8” or less. However, we have many years of experience working with our clients to develop unique and innovative solutions to meet challenges in line sizes ranging from 4” to 42”.

Advantages

  • Eliminates lost production due to plugged or partially plugged flow lines
  • Cleans lines or retrieves stuck pigs > 30,000 ft.
  • Cleans lines to the full ID of the pipe to mitigate future buildup
  • Minimizes the need for expensive line routes
  • Applicable in diverse environments, unaffected by water depth, temperature, pressure or H2S and CO2
  • Professionally engineered and fabricated with fully traceable components
  • Supported by a team of engineers and application specialists to ensure safe, effective project execution

Applications

  • Cleans flow lines to the full ID of the pipe to restore or increase production
  • Cleans flow lines to facilitate abandonment
  • Cleans flow lines prior to integrity testing
  • Removes or retrieves stuck poly pigs
  • Run calipers, gyros, inspection tools in flow lines at extended distances in unpiggable lines
