Pipelines are protected against deterioration in a variety of ways. However, these protective systems can become less effective over time, and defects can develop in structures. This affects the reliability, safety, and performance of your assets. It is therefore essential to perform condition assessments using the best available techniques.
Condition assessments allow you to pinpoint immediate threats, predict the rate of growth of a defect, and to understand how you can prevent these defects from happening.
With Fitness-For-Purpose assessments, Corrosion Growth Analyses, Remaining Life Assessments, and Pipeline Lifecycle Assessments, combined with our PIMS software called PRIMS, you can assess both the current situation and predict future issues or necessary actions.
FFP serves as a rational basis for defining flaw acceptance limits.
Using our pipeline software PRIMS, we perform metal loss corrosion analyses according to different standards, such as ASME b31g, ASME b31g Modified, and DNV. Our experts provide you with recommendations for further investigation, remediation, and inspection intervals.
All this information is gathered in an FFP report so you know exactly whether it is safe to operate the pipeline and whether you comply with regulatory requirements.
