What is a Hot Tap and Linestop?

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 linestop.

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

  • Single linestops to isolate a section of pipeline to allow for the safe removal and replacement of a pig launcher valve.
  • Double linestop with a bypass allows for the continued operation of a pipeline while a repair or other remedial activities are taking place.
