Tracerco can save you as much as 35% on the cost of Pipeline Life Extension projects by scanning through coated subsea pipelines. With non-intrusive pipeline inspection and no interruption to normal working conditions, operators can effectively determine the length of time a pipeline can be extended past its original design life, by gathering real time data on a variety of integrity issues including pipeline corrosion, pitting and wall thinning, all without removing the protective coatings. This cost effective approach can also eliminate the potential operating costs associated with designing a new section of line, recommissioning a line, pipeline modification, the time and risks associated with coating removal/reapplication and long and expensive vessel hire.
Discovery™ accurately provides a high resolution, 360° tomographic image of pipe wall thickness. With non-intrusive inspection, Discovery™ removes the need for coating removal, inline inspection and the associated risks of pigging to provide operators with a cost effective solution to determining Pipeline Life Extension without damaging the integrity of the pipe.
Our proven non-intrusive pig tracking system provides operators with the knowledge of exactly where a pig is during a pipeline life inspection campaign as well as the speed of the pig. Operators can use this data to; minimise the cost of preparing the line for pig cleaning and finding and removing the pig, reduce the risk of damage to the pipeline during the inspection.
