  • Use of the world’s lowest cost SIM solution, the MGP-i, to enhance structural integrity of offshore platforms.

NON-PIGGABLE PIPELINES INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT

  • A complete and comprehensive pipeline integrity management ranging from assessment of pipeline to RBI, scanning, detailed inspection, analysis and recommendation.
  • Deliverables include comprehensive reporting and calculations of Fitness-for-Service and Remaining Life Assessment in accordance with international standards.

INTEGRITY ASSESSMENT OF NON-PIGGABLE PIPELINES

IEV in collaboration with Sonomatic, offers pipeline integrity assessment, using direct assessment (DA) method suited for non-piggable pipelines. DA is a structured multi-step evaluation method following the NACE standards, to examine and identify the potential problem areas relating to internal and external corrosion, including stress corrosion cracking defects. It may provide an effective alternative, equivalent to ILI and hydrostatic pressure testing for evaluating a pipeline’s integrity. This assessment method would be ideal for pipelines under the following conditions:

  • Where ILI or hydrostatic pressure testing cannot be used.
  • To avoid impractical, costly retrofitting of a pipeline.
  • To avoid shutdown/ interruption on pipeline operations.
  • Where sources of water for hydrostatic pressure testing are scarce, and where water disposal may create problems.

CORROSION UNDER INSULATION (CUI) MANAGEMENT

  • A total CUI management of plants, refineries and any facility with a network of insulated pipelines/piping system.
  • Scope of work includes RBI, inspection tools without removal of insulation, detection, recommended repair and warning systems.
Corrosion Under Pipe Support

CORROSION UNDER PIPE SUPPORT (CUPS) REMEDIATION

  • Apply to both static and dynamic pipe supports
  • No pipe lift-off
  • Long term corrosion prevention by Trenton microcrystalline Wax-Tapes
  • Minimum surface preparation by hand tool cleaning (SP2)
  • Accommodate all different types of support and movement in excess of 40mm
