Safe pig receiver access

Santos GLNG is a joint venture operated by the Australian energy company Santos. The other partners are Petronas, Total and Kogas. Santos GLNG produces coal seam gas in the Sarat and Bowen basins in Eastern Queensland, Australia. The gas is piped to a LNG plant on Curtis Island, just of the coast of Gladstone, where the gas is liquified and shipped.

At the end of the 520 km pipeline, feeding the LNG plant, is a pig receiver. Safely opening the receiver to unload pigs was hampered by passing valves of both 40″ main line and 24″ kicker line valves. Furthermore, the gas was treated with glycol and the bleed points were low point drains, so besides the DBB-SAVER also the liquid KO equipment was required.

The DBB-SAVER started deployment in 2020 and will stay with GLNG for the duration of the pigging campaign until 2022
