PIPE DEPTH ASSESSMENT
A service engineered to obtain depth data for every centimeter of your pipeline
Introducing our cutting-edge Precision Pipeline Depth Assessment service, designed to deliver high-resolution depth data for every 1 cm of your pipeline infrastructure. Our goal is to help you proactively prevent accidents and efficiently plan depth of cover measures, ensuring pipeline safety and integrity.
Buried pipelines face considerable risks due to third-party interference, with intensive agricultural practices and land cultivation causing changes in soil cover and jeopardizing pipeline safety. To address this issue, pipeline operators often rely on traditional pipe locators to map assets and establish Depth of Cover (DoC). However, this approach is not only expensive and time-consuming, but also lacks accuracy. Both traditional pipe locators and ground-penetrating radars are insufficient in providing comprehensive data necessary for effective accident prevention and optimized planning. As a result, a solution capable of delivering continuous, precise depth information with minimal measurement uncertainty is in high demand.
Our Current Magnetometry Inspection (CMI) technology offers the most precise DoC measurement solution on the market. CMI is a state-of-the-art, certified survey technique designed for reliable Depth of Cover assessments, even in the harshest environments. Our clients leverage our pipe depth assessment service to accurately determine pipeline depth at every coordinate, allowing them to implement effective mitigation measures at critical locations and minimize the risk of third-party damage.
- Advanced Depth of Cover survey with a maximum error of 20 mm
- Effective in the most challenging conditions, including parallel pipes, high-impact areas, and mountainous terrain
- Seamless capture of Depth of Cover, with a measurement grid up to 1 cm
- Optimal protection for operators in disputes with third parties, ensuring pipeline safety and accountability
