What is a Hot Tap and Line stop?

Hot taps are typically used as a tie-in point for new piping but are also often performed as a means to install instrumentation without shutdown. Hot taps are frequently performed as an essential step in preparation for a line stop.

Successful line stops to repair or maintain pipelines and pipeline systems are the key to continued safe and effective operations of platforms, pipelines, and process facilities.
