Pipelines are perhaps the largest pieces of physical infrastructure the oil & gas industry depends on. They offer the industry numerous advantages, such as reduced transportation costs. However, due to their size, ubiquity, and exposure to various elements, pipelines are also at risk of damage and failure. Ensuring your oil & gas pipelines are in safe operating condition requires routine attention and inspection as metal shifts and corrodes over time and can result in structural failure or weakening. To mitigate the risks associated with oil & gas pipeline failures, Russell NDE is here to help with our rigorous pipeline inspection services. Continue reading to learn more about how Russell NDE can inspect the condition of your pipelines, even if they're considered unpiggable.
Need to Inspect an Unpiggable Pipeline? Russell NDE Can Help!
For decades the in-line inspection of pipelines was dominated by magnetic flux leakage (MFL) tools; however, when faced with unpiggable pipelines, these tools often fail to deliver. There are numerous types of pipelines that cannot be inspected with MFL or ultrasonic instruments. Fortunately, Russell NDE has an innovative pipeline inspection solution for unpiggable or challenging pipeline inspections. Below we'll discuss more what makes a pipeline unpiggable and the tool Russell NDE has created to perform unpiggable pipeline inspections.
