An Oil & Gas Case Study

Safe Pigging to Ensure Efficient Fracking

The Fracking Challenge: In order to keep water transfer lines from freezing up on a hydraulic fracturing site, a customer wanted to “pig” the lines after each stage of the frac. With several weeks of single-digit weather due to hit Eastern Ohio, Baker put a solution in place to minimize customer downtime due to the harsh conditions.

Baker Solution: Baker partnered with an expert pigging company to supply top quality pig launchers and receivers for the customer jobsite. With safety always the first priority, Baker participated in thorough training classes focused on safe procedures for the pigging solution. Following safety training, updated pigging SOPs, Lock Out / Tag Out procedures, operating checklists, and a system “dry-run” were completed to ensure optimal solution performance for the customer.

Working to customer specifications, Baker successfully pigged the line numerous times without causing the customer any downtime due to lines freezing up during one of the harshest winters in a century.
