Hot tapping, or pressure tapping, is the method of connecting to existing pipe or pressure vessels without the interruption of service or emptying that section of pipe or vessel. This means that a pipe or tank can continue to be in operation whilst maintenance or modifications are being done to it. The process is also used to drain off pressurised casing fluids.

Hot tapping is also the first procedure in line stopping, where a cutter is used to make an opening in the pipe, so a line plugging head can be inserted.
