Unpiggable Pipeline Integrity Assessment Service

When a pipeline cannot be inline inspected, we offer an alternative to assess their integrity conditions: Direct assessment methods (ECDA, ICDA) and other inspection technologies.

Our services provide our clients (pipeline operators) the opportunity to build on the foundation established by regulations, in order to develop an integrity management program that best meets their unique operational needs, by following the guidelines set forth in the more recognized pipeline integrity standards.

Our services include:

  • Direct Assessment:
  • External Corrosion Direct Assessment (ECDA)
    • Pre-Assessment
    • Indirect Inspection
    • Direct Inspection
    • Post Assessment
  • Internal Corrosion Direct Assessment (ICDA) of liquid petroleum, dry gas, and multiphase flow pipelines.
    • Pre-Assessment
    • Indirect Inspection
    • Detailed Examinations
    • Post Assessment
  • Other Inspection Technologies (GWUT, Phased Array Ultrasound)
  • Mechanical Integrity Analysis
    • Calculation of Corrosion Rates and Trend Analysis
    • Analysis of Tolerance of Defects and Fitness-for-Service
    • Maintenance Plan (Prevention, Remediation, and reparation actions)
  • Risk Assessment
    • Definition of HCA (Hight consequence areas)
    • Estimation of consequences: social, environmental and property damages
    • Prediction of damage failure frequency
    • Risk matrix
    • Corrosion risk forecast
