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 [...]

Non-destructive testing helps nuclear plants identify problems with concrete structures

It is imperative for power companies that generate electricity using nuclear fuels perform routine testing on their facilities. Testing helps identify potential weaknesses or structural deficiencies early so that companies can address them before excessive downtime or loss of power generation capabilities occur. In no small measure, testing also ensures the safety of employees. Assessing the integrity of [...]

Evaluating defects using eddy current testing

In many industries, quality control and asset integrity management have become vital to business continuity. Without the ability to test assets to determine product lifecycle, industrial companies cannot accurately maintain and minimize downtime. Eddy current testing is a mainstay NDT technique and has been for decades. For testing conductive materials, ET is a reliable method for [...]

Fitness for service in the process industries

There is a common dilemma for engineers in process industries when it comes to flaws in components: "Can I run it? Should I repair? Is it time to retire the component?" Those questions are vital to any asset integrity management program. If an engineer cannot make accurate, honest assessments, it can mean extended downtime, a loss of [...]

Necessary safety precautions at terminal facilities

Terminal facilities play an important role in the storage, transportation and distribution of natural resources. Operators of these terminals must take necessary precautions and perform real-time testing procedures to uncover potential flaws or deficiencies present in production assets before these weaknesses contribute to downtime, spills or other hazards. Depots are typically located in key ports, with multiple distribution networks [...]

Identifying subsidence threats to oil and gas pipelines

For engineers who work on pipelines, there are external threats to be aware of and respond to. Lines that cross through hilly or mountainous terrain are susceptible to land movement, or subsidence. Studying the terrain and the types of landmass movement is essential for engineers and geologists. It can play a role in determining where [...]

Risk assessments critical to pipeline operators

Pipeline safety is no longer a matter of responding to accidents or managing the after-effects of a leak or operational failure. In the last decade, operators and service technicians have adopted a new baseline understanding for the safety of pipeline assets, reliant upon the latest technological solutions and innovative engineering feats. Conventional risk assessment models [...]

  • Assess the threat of landslides to pipelines

Assess the threat of landslides to pipelines

Pipelines can stretch for thousands of miles across varying terrain. Some of the areas can be relatively flat, posing little threat of geologic events to a pipelines' structural integrity. However other regions may be more susceptible to ground displacement, subsidence and landslides. Pipeline corridors that cross mountainous terrain are especially vulnerable. Midstream and downstream oil [...]
