key advantages

  • Accurate measurement of steel strength (yield strength, tensile strength)
  • Optimization of the pipeline's operating pressure
  • Maximization of efficiency by avoiding unnecessary excavations
  • Each joint is identified and characterized extending the asset's life cycle
  • Lifetime integrity management, supported by full recording of the inspection raw data
  • High quality service following certified processes (API 1163), personnel qualification (ASNT) and equipment (CE, ATEX)
  • High availability and a wide range of proven tool configurations addressing individual operational pipeline requirements

The Solution

By means of a single inline inspection, the RoMat PGS Inline high-resolution service provides unique information along the entire pipeline, thus ensuring traceable, verifiable, complete, and reliable pipe records. ROSEN’s innovative inline inspection service for material strength categorization provides measurement of strength properties and accurate determination of pipe grade for every single pipe within the examined pipe section. This service provides a sequential "pipeline DNA" breakup delivering populations based on diameter, wall thickness, strength and pipe length. This service significantly reduces costs associated with obtaining missing pipeline design and record requirements. In 2015, the RoMat PGS Inline high-resolution service for pipe received the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Global Pipeline Award.


  • Creation of populations based on diameter, wall strength and pipe length
  • Determination of yield strength and ultimate tensile stress enabling the determination of pipe grade
  • Pipeline DNA analysis by using multiple data sets
  • Extended field verifications supporting regulations on request
  • Engineering judgements assess findings of pipe grade determination
  • Verification to given SMYS, yield strength and tensile strength provided by records
  • Completing of SMYS, strength gaps in line segments


All aspects from the inspection request to the final report are covered with the flexibility to choose from various service options.

  • Cleaning – operational and pre inspection
  • Speed Control – inspection at high flow rates
  • XYZ – route mapping and strain assessment
  • Multi-Diameter – pipelines with varying diameter
