Pipelines are exposed to a wide range of potential damage mechanisms, which may eventually result in leakage or worse if not identified and mitigated at the right time. While single threats may severely compromise the operational safety of a given pipeline, combined threats like corrosion in dents, or cracks in corrosion pose an even higher risk to the asset’s overall integrity.
There is no single inspection technology that can detect and size all combinations of features that may be present in your pipeline. So how can you be sure to detect every anomaly?
ROSEN offers a variety of modular inspection technologies that can be merged on one tool to comprehensively assess various types of threats in one ILI run, ultimately reducing inspection-related costs and efforts. Each technology is strong on its own. However, the combination of multiple technologies provides significant added value as the combined evaluation of various data sets leads to more accurate integrity assessments.
Multiple inspection data is input for our combined data analysis using synergy effects of the independent and complementary nature of the measurements. Using a well-structured and certified process our analysts provide the required high-quality reports on time.
The reporting and data management software ROSOFT ensures easy data visualization and facilitates a versatile use of inspection results.
- Improved sizing accuracy and probability of identification by combining complementary inspection technologies and aligned data sets
- Improved characterization of interacting defects, e.g. gouging/denting, corrosion/cracks in dents
- Cost-effectiveness and reduction of operational risks by limiting onsite activities, e.g. launching, receiving and tool tracking
- Reduced impact on pipeline operations
