Asset Integrity Management and Data Management Software


Holistic integrity management requires a reliable system of record and adaptable processes. What operators need is an accurate reflection of their individual asset integrity management process in a digital solution.

With NIMA, we have developed an Asset Integrity Management Software solution that supports dynamic decision-making, providing instant access to inspection and integrity assessment results. It gives clarity in understanding risks and making complex integrity management decisions for any asset.

The NIMA software concept

  • Synchronize current and historical data from any provider and location as the basis for rapid decision-making; ensuring data is traceable, verifiable and complete
  • Visualize data in ways that add value and bring real meaning
  • Analyze data using a certified standard set of process templates for most common integrity management processes, or bespoke applications designed to fit your processes
  • Report and monitor asset condition to make the right decisions
Cycle with the stations 'Synchronize', 'Visualize', 'Analyze' and 'Report & Monitor', which then passes into 'Synchronize' again.

The digital future of effective asset integrity management

NIMA is a powerful and flexible Asset Integrity Management Software solution. It delivers the data you need, in the way you need it, to make better integrity management decisions. NIMA focuses on three main features:

  • Synchronization and visualization of inspection and integrity data: Clear overview and easy alignment of inspection and survey results, data quality assessments, design and construction details, and the findings of any analyses
  • Performing integrity management tasks: Access to multiple asset integrity management applications – from asset integrity assessments to risk analyses, repair planning, and regulatory response definition
  • Performance dashboards: Multiple fully customizable visualizations of the integrity status allow tracking of critical key performance indicators and a clear understanding of areas of risk

Generate and maintain a robust system of record

Inspections generate a huge volume of information, which needs to be interpreted and analyzed. NIMA allows us to transform information into knowledge, which in turn enables smarter decision-making. We approach Data Management by focusing on enabling clients to use industry leading tools in an effective and auditable way to:

  • Create a robust auditable system of record
  • Align and store information from multiple sources in industry standard data structures
  • Dynamically segment source data to show holistic view of assets
  • Pull together disparate datasets to break silos and enable better business intelligence

Offering flexibility with in-house or bespoke process templates

NIMA Integrity Management offers a high degree of flexibility by providing an extensive base library of process templates that cover most needs. Our in-house integrity experts developed these templates with methods proven in the delivery of hundreds of integrity assessments per year. In addition, our experts can create customized process templates to cover individual needs, or your expert teams can generate their own templates to match your specific processes. We already offer the following:

Pipetally Visualization

Rapid, intuitive and interactive visualization of in-line inspection results to get an overview of what has been reported, and where. Includes all anomalies and references (valve, tees and other fittings) and provides tables, charts and maps.

Integrity Sheets

Dynamic linear and spatial alignment of multiple data sets to convey complex information to the user. The user can view the entire pipeline at once or zoom into specific areas to enable the diagnosis of potential integrity problems where multiple contributing factors may be present. Various data visualization formats are available, including maps, tables and charts.

Material Property Verification

Delivering traceable, verifiable and complete (TVC) line-pipe material records with a representation of the "pipeline DNA" giving the strength and grade of each pipe joint and bend, plus wall thickness and joint length. Visualizations of independent populations of line pipes are provided together with map views to assist in further analyses.

Crack Inspection | Data Quality Assessment

Crack detection inspections use complex sensitive technology and provide vast data quantities. Quickly confirm that the results meet vital asset integrity management requirements by visualizing EMAT crack detection in-line inspection data in easy-to-understand charts. Verify that the data quality meets your needs, and identify issues that may affect integrity decisions.

Bending Strain Visualization

Simple and effective visualization and review of bending strain areas measured by IMU against reported deformations (e.g. dents, ovality, wrinkles), girth weld locations and satellite imagery. Results provide the user with the information necessary to prioritize bending strain areas and determine what further actions may be required.

Fitness for Service | Immediate Assessment

Quickly and reliably assess the acceptability and safe remaining ligament of metal-loss features reported by ILI in accordance with industry standards and best practice (ASME B31G [Level 1a & 1b], DNVGL-RP-F101 [Part B], Shannon, Kastner, NG-18). Display results in comprehensive graphs and produce summary listings.

Corrosion Growth | Box Matching

Quantify corrosion growth by comparing two in-line inspection (ILI) metal loss feature lists with “pit-to-pit” matching, plus segment the pipeline and assign safe characteristic corrosion growth rates in accordance with industry best practice. Visualize the results in clear intuitive charts and tables.

NIMA process template image

Fitness for Service | Future Assessment

Follow industry good practice and identify corrosion features that may grow to an unacceptable size within a selected time period using previously estimated corrosion growth rates (CGRs). Provide the inputs required for detailed repair planning and the definition of reinspection intervals. Display results in interactive charts and tables.
