Sequence of photos from the P-200 petroleum fuel pipeline construction project located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This was part of the commissioning pigging of six different product lines. Over 20 pigs of different types was ran through each line. Note different types of pigs used and the amount of debris recovered from the pipelines. This shows the importance of pigging pipelines after construction and before fuel introduction.
