Pipeline Integrity and Maintenance
The challenges to overcome pipeline defects and anomalies from damage or corrosion are of extreme importance to oil and gas operators. Proactive maintenance through pipeline integrity management systems is crucial and required to avoid major problems such as losing pipeline capacity or pipeline breakdown.
CSU is here to assist with any pipeline maintenance and repair service, big or small, to help you reach compliance.
In conjunction with integrity management, CSU can utilize internal inspection tools that travel inside pipelines to collect data and evaluate conditions of pipelines. In some cases, the inspection tool locates a feature that requires a visual inspection via excavation to determine if a repair or other action is required.
NDT Inspection and Repair
Non-destructive testing (NDT) enables the inspection of components without permanently altering the original equipment or structure. It is a highly valuable technique that is often used to validate the integrity of materials, detect instabilities, discover performance outside of tolerances, recognize failed components, or highlight an inadequate control system.
