T.D. Williamson (TDW) inspected a 10 inch transmission line in Canada using Deformation (DEF), Multiple Dataset (MDS) and Electro-magnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) In-Line Inspection tools. The data from the tools were used in an immediate defects assessment...
A common means of accessing a pipeline for such operations as diversions, new connections, maintenance, etc. is to use a hot tap. Hot taps are widely accepted in the industry and offer several advantages over shutting down the pipeline such as reducing production downtime, eliminating the loss of pipeline product and preventing unwanted carbon emissions.
This paper discusses the development of the Smart Leak Detection (SLED) system, a multi-platform remote sensing technology for the autonomous detection of liquid hydrocarbons, and recent work funded through the U.S. DOE to extend this capability to the detection of fugitive methane emissions.
Vibration-induced fatigue accounts for more than 20% of process piping failures. These failures can often be prevented through proper design, however, current industry practices frequently miss important design aspects.
Composite pipe repair systems have become widespread repair choices throughout the pipeline, offshore, plant and refinery markets. This has increased interest in knowledge about composite repair inspection methods among end users.
This paper introduces a novel technology that continuously monitors wall-loss rates in pipelines. A pair of permanently installed ring arrays of ultrasonic transducers encircles the pipe and delimits the section to be monitored.
