Through a pioneer method in Brazil, the Brazilian side of Bolivia-Brazil gas pipeline had its northern and south branches successfully purged and loaded. Pigs were not utilized in this procedure and the method is based on high injection flow rates of natural gas. Results proved this method to be suitable and safe for purging natural gas pipeline into service.
