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”.
