Steel Pipe Compression Fitting

Owners recently had Splits systems installed and the existing heaters has been removed and capped. However , some of the pipe is sticking a bit and we cannot remove the pipe and retread. Is there a way we can cut down shorter and install some type of compression fitting ?

Betcha the other end of that pipe is threaded too. Why can't you unscrew it and replace it with a shorter stub (or a plug)?

That makes way too much sense.
I may be going to hell in a bucket, but at least I'm enjoying the ride.
