Joints & Hot Tapping

Hot tapping is a special type of connection that operators prefer to make to existing pipeline systems for expansion of modification purposes – as it does not require shutting down the pipeline.

The flexibility of the SPS system derives from interlocking multiple layers. These need to be tied together before making a hot tap using a specialist welding approach that is under development.

 Hot tapping is, however, considered feasible for the SPS pipeline system.
