Pipeline Inspection

Pipeline Integrity Inspections are one of the ways used to confirm the integrity of a Pipeline, or confirm the accuracy of an MFL tools results. Our years of experience performing Pipeline Integrity Inspections give us an advantage in knowing what to look for and how to find it. A typical Pipeline Integrity Inspection will look for and contain the following:

• Documentation of the “as-found” pipe condition
• Inspection of coating and documentation of defects
• Documentation of External corrosion and pitting
• Profiling of external and internal corrosion for R-Streng calculations
• Wet MPI (Fluorescent or Visible) of welds and corrosion areas for SCC
• Manual UT and Automated UT mapping of internal corrosion
• Internal Pit detection/sizing/profiling
• Dent deflection measurements
• Gouge characterization, measurement, and profiling
• Documentation of dig site conditions including soil condition, water, elevation,
• Bacteria Sampling
• Soil Samples Collection
• Scale Samples Collection
• Testing for Iron Sulfate
• Arc Strike Removal
• Oversight of weld repairs or coating repairs
• Pipe-to-soil potential measurements

Our reports are fully documented to help provide the client with the information of the true condition of his pipeline.

Working with CSA Z662 pipelines? Our technicians can help you inspect your above ground piping risers and pig barrels. Our procedure includes accurate collection of static pipeline information, documentation of the as-found condition, external coating inspection, internal/external pipe condition inspection (including barrel threads), pipe-to-soil potential (utilizing voltmeter), assisting in repairs, and final inspection post wrap.
