Are you facing challenges in performing inline inspection (ILI) of your unpiggable pipeline or difficult to inspect pipelines? Does the difficulty and/or delay in performing pipeline inspection force you to operate your pipeline network with an unacceptably high risk?
Performing inline inspection can be a challenging and complex undertaking. Pipeline Direct Assessment (DA) is an alternative method which can be considered.
A well Implemented Pipeline Direct Assessment can be extremely effective as an alternative means to inline inspection for unpiggable or difficult to inspect pipelines.
HOW DO YOU PERFORM A PIPELINE DIRECT ASSESSMENT?
The assessment needs to be performed by experienced and competent pipeline integrity engineers, in accordance with industry standard practices and guidelines (e.g. NACE SP0110, SP0116, SP0204, SP0206, SP0208, SP0502)
A four-step process is typically employed:
AIE has extensive experience and track record in all aspects of Pipeline Direct Assessment. We can guide pipeline operators to acquire the relevant data and our subject matter experts can promptly assess the feasibility of a Pipeline Direct Assessment. Furthermore, we can perform or support indirect inspection, direct examination, and post assessment activities.
