Technology for Rapid Blocking of Emergency Sections of Oil and Gas Pipelines and a Mobile Complex for Implementation Thereof

Description

Due to natural or technogenic factors as well as a result of terrorist acts it may be necessary to rapidly block emergency sections of product pipelines. When pumping oil (and oil products), and during pipe transportation of other energy carriers the pipes can rupture. The technology is focused to increasing safety and reliability of operation of oil and petroleum product pipelines as well as for mitigating the economic and environmental damage due to accidents caused by pipe rupture, and to contain fires.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

The technology is based on sealing off the delivery sections of the product pipeline by directional deformation of the shell provided its strength properties are maintained. The mass and size of the mobile complex allows mounting it on an automobile chassis or onboard a helicopte. This makes it possible to deliver the complex rapidly to the accident zone. The complex deployment time is no more than 20 minutes. The equipment allows for sealed cut-off in pipeline systems with transportation pipe diameter within 1,200 mm.

Areas of Application

Oil pumping companies.

Stage of Development

Research has been conducted. The basic technological techniques and equipment components have been developed.
