Without the need for intrusive intervention, InnerVue diagnostics interprets pressure waves reflecting from internal features of the pipeline or wellbore and extrapolates the pressure reflections into deposit profiles or blockage and leak locations.

A proprietary software analyses the pressure wave signature to determine the profile of the hydraulic diameter of a pipe or wellbore, detecting blockages such as stuck pigs or the top-of-a-cement plug, and identifies fluid leakage locations and volume. 

Scott Greig, senior director for Halliburton Pipeline & Process Services, said, “InnerVue diagnostics is unique in its ability to help customers make better decisions by monitoring the effectiveness of their flow assurance program, reducing the cost of blockage remediation, and preventing product loss and environmental damage.” 

InnerVue diagnostics has been successfully deployed in both the US and international markets.
