Protecting the Core: Managing Critical Assets

Handling pipeline system integrity

The combination of increasing safety and environmental concerns shared by the general public and more stringent regulations has led to an intensification of preventive maintenance for piping systems in high-hazard installations such as refineries. A comprehensive asset management plan identifies these threats and aligns appropriate actions to the mitigation of risk arising from pipework failures.

Our piping inspection and integrity service portfolio helps operators of refineries and petrochemical plants maintain the end-to-end integrity of their piping systems, from robust design to end-of-life management. Drawing on an extensive portfolio of innovative technology solutions and dedicated to enabling short reaction times, our expert team focuses on setting up comprehensive inspection programs and failure mitigation actions for the protection of plant equipment.

Risk ranking and prioritization, customized inspection planning and execution, and integrity management plans help ensure pipework integrity and enable the operator to overcome corrosion threats and comply with relevant regulations.
