Liquid Pipelines

Liquid pipelines pose unique challenges because of the products they’re transporting.

Crude oil and refined products can have inherently corrosive properties that need to be measured, monitored, and mitigated. Combined with possible pressure cycling, natural threats, and threats introduced by 3rd parties, the health of a liquid pipeline can be compromised over time.

Ultrasonic inline inspections have long been recognized as the preferred way to inspect anomalies because they’re a direct measurement method that doesn’t require calibration. NDT Global has been at the forefront of innovating this technology, the most recent example of which is our latest generation of crack detection and sizing tools. Regardless of the cause of features in a pipeline, our ILI tools are uniquely capable of detecting threats in your system ranging from cracks, dents and ovalities, cracks in dents, corrosion, and more. Our high-resolution inspections are precise to within sub-millimeter accuracy, which means defects can be detected very early in their development. This accuracy allows operators to address features early and more cost effectively than if they were detected later in their progression.
