Pipeliners Dictionary

Pipeline inspection is the process of examining pipelines to assess their condition, detect any anomalies or defects, and ensure they are operating within safe and acceptable parameters.

It involves various techniques and technologies such as current magnetometry inspection (CMI), inline inspection (ILI) tools, such as smart pigs, ultrasound, and magnetic flux leakage, to gather data and information about the pipeline's internal and external condition. The purpose of pipeline inspection is to minimize the risk of pipeline failures, spills, and other incidents that can result in environmental damage and financial losses. Regular and comprehensive pipeline inspections are a critical component of pipeline integrity management and help to ensure that pipelines continue to operate safely and efficiently.
