Crack Management Series

Within the past year, the American Petroleum Institute (API) published the first edition of API RP 1176, a recommended practice for assessment and management of cracking in pipelines.  While the API guidance typically focuses on pipelines that transport liquids, this document specifically states that the recommended practice is applicable to any pipeline system used to [...]

  • Why utility mapping is critical to risk reduction and recordkeeping

Why utility mapping is critical to recordkeeping and risk reduction

The importance of utility mapping cannot be overstated in the fields of geophysics, environmental engineering and infrastructure planning. Asset operators on sites that contain subsurface pipelines and other ancillary tubes, ducts or channels must contend with the potential for damage to these assets at any given time. For a number of reasons, [...]

Why pipeline monitoring is imperative in high-consequence areas

Thinking back to 2016, many observant TV viewers likely recall the uptick in extreme weather events. And the facts check out: The number of floods reached a record high, and Live Science stamped 2016 as "The Year of the Earthquake." This is not to say rising water levels and high-magnitude quakes were the only [...]

Transporting oil and gas safely with efficient pipeline integrity solutions

Oil and gas transportation is a matter of vital public importance, not only from a power generation standpoint, but also as an issue of safety. The world's natural resources are the fundamental reserve with which nations must constantly tap into, yet protect at the same time. Fortunately, there are safe and efficient ways to move [...]

Magnetic flux leakage testing for the oil and gas industry

The structural integrity of storage tanks and piping systems for the oil and gas industry is vital to business. Operators must be vigilant in locating cracks, thinning of structure walls or heavy corrosion. Then they must assess whether that pipe or tank can remain in service or must be repaired or even [...]

Quality assurance services optimize pipeline route selection

The selection of routes is a vital component of the overall future performance of pipelines and, without accurate quality assurance services, operators may be misguided in their pursuit of safe and efficient transportation of oil and gas. The standard flow of resources travels from the wellheads at drilling sites through gathering pipelines, which are connected to processing or [...]

Non-destructive leak testing can improve pipeline sustainability

A leaking pipeline can cause an inordinate amount of legal, safety and environmental risks, which is why oil and gas companies delegate a large percentage of their time and resources toward detecting and preventing leaks. While operators look to put more miles of pipelines into production, some face regulatory hurdles in certain regions, which forces [...]

NDT for downstream oil and gas

Keeping downtime to a minimum is vital to downstream oil and gas operations. The oil and gas industry relies on nondestructive testing techniques to determine the lifecycle of production assets and minimizing downtime. Such techniques also play a key role in plant safety. Inspectioneering Journal wrote that it is important for pipeline and refinery owners to [...]

Corrosion management in storage facilities

Corrosion control and management is a critical component to the proper operation and maintenance of a number of facilities and structures in the energy industry. Due to the harsh nature of the chemicals, contaminants and corrosive elements in contact with metal tanks, pipelines, terminals, plants and platforms, the chance of degradation is higher when there [...]

Making the case for risk-based inspections

For those who work in the oil, gas or other process industries, regulations that ensure safe operation are clear. When operators are working with hazardous materials or work in potentially hazardous conditions, there are extra precautions to take and processes to follow. But when operators are in charge of their company's comprehensive asset integrity management program, they [...]
