The project selected for Final Year Project is Intelligent Pig Launcher. The selection of this project is based on the pigging operation underwent during industrial internship. Pig is an acronym for Pipeline Inspection Gauge. One of the most common type of pig is the corrosion detection pig (CDP), or more commonly known as intelligentpig. Intelligentpig is an advanced type of pig which is used to locate metal loss, dents and cracks. The metal loss is located by using magnetic flux field. The data is recorded in a standalone memory. Currently in pipelines industry insertion and receiving of pigs are both time consuming and inefficient. The intelligent pig launcher is designed to overcome this problem. The launcher is intrinsically safe to be used in oil and gas industry. It is also expected to reduce the cost of operation. To design this, the specifications ofthe intelligent pig were studied in detail. The existing method of launching and receiving was also investigated. Then, the design was drafted using engineering graphic software. The objective of this to project is to design a device that can assist in inserting intelligent pig that requires less number of manpower and time during insertion activities. The feasibility of the project is also discussed in this report, which includes the estimated cost to accomplish and the time frame allocated. Also, the equipments required are explained.
