Pipeline Design and ILI Feasibility

Inspection technologies designed to meet your requirements

The Problem

Inspecting a pipeline is a complex operation, as it must be completed safely, with minimal disruption to production. It is often fraught with complications due to the varying dimensions that the pipeline exhibits. To overcome this. the right groundwork is key to ensuring your pipeline inspection project is a success. The majority of pipelines are not designed with ILI experts involved early in the design process, they are frequently not conducive to easy inspection.

Deepwater pipelines are particularly complicated. Not only do they lie thousands of feet below the surface, but the nature of the deep sea environment means that they are designed with certain characteristics that make inspection difficult. 

The Solution

We believe in listening carefully to our customers so we can propose the most suitable, efficient, and cost-effective inspection, assessment or integrity solution. First run success and reliable results are our top priorities. If inspection experts are involved in the initial phases of the pipeline design process, their input will ensure that the pipeline will be much easier to inspect in future.
