Pipeline problems, meet pipeline solutions.



Regardless of the size, complexity, or location of a pipeline project, hot tapping and plugging is the preferred method for performing maintenance, repairs, or modification work that requires making safe entry into a live, pressurized line. The technology also makes it possible for pipeline owners and operators to isolate and bypass sections of pipeline so they can complete their projects without shutting down the system or losing product.


From shallow waters to the bottom of the sea, TDW helps offshore operators tackle demanding and complex projects while minimizing risk to production, pipeline assets, personnel, and the environment. With TDW non-intrusive technologies, you’ll avoid depressurizing and decommissioning your entire pipeline prior to offshore start-up, maintenance, repair, and other activities.


Pipeline owners and operators also use pigs to protect their product purity, remove unwanted materials and items from their line, prepare for pre-commissioning and inspection testing, and confirm pipeline defects. TDW, a global pigging solutions provider, delivers customized solutions for operators’ needs.

Pipelines are the infrastructure of the developed world. They fill a crucial need – to bring energy to those who use it every day, from home cooks to large-scale industries. And TDW has been there from the start. Although our history reaches back to the 1920s, when we helped bring electrical power to the fledgling American petroleum industry, we soon turned our attention to the nation’s emerging network of pipelines. Under the leadership of founder T.D. Williamson Sr., we focused on creating and supplying technology to keep those early lines clean and safe. That included responding to the War Emergency Pipeline Office’s request to develop a scraping tool for a new generation of larger pipelines supplying crude oil to the Armed Forces in Europe – a need met when Williamson, his son, T.D. Jr., and a young engineer came up with the steel, mandrel-bodied tool known today as the pipeline “pig.” As the years have ticked by and energy demand has soared worldwide, the pipeline industry has similarly expanded. And it’s safe to say that TDW has grown alongside it, achieving a worldwide presence. But that doesn’t mean our work is done. The same level of ingenuity that inspired the Williamsons to create the first pipeline pig, ushering in a new era of pipeline integrity solutions, is required from us every day. And now, the stakes are even greater.
The pipeline industry will continue to play a critical role in meeting growing global energy demands. Existing pipelines will require inspection, maintenance, and repair techniques to extend their life, and new pipelines will be required to add capacity as our energy needs continue to grow. And as energy demands grow, so will the expectations of the public regarding safety and environmental stewardship. Pipeline owners and operators will meet these higher expectations through integrity management – investing in technologies and experts to better inspect and maintain their pipelines. Other industry changes will include our work force. As the “Great Crew Change” continues, the value of an inter-generational workforce, where we learn from one another, is key. Employees value purposeful work, accelerated responsibility and paths to leadership. Moving forward, organizations with a culture defined by meaningful work, deep employee engagement, and strong leadership will attract and retain high-quality talent
