Integrity digs prevent leaks to keep pipelines safe - About Pipelines
For instance, in 2018 alone, operators invested $2 Billion to maintain and monitor their pipeline systems. They use sophisticated inline inspection tools (ILI), such as smart pigs, to identify even tiny flaws in pipelines. And, when inline inspection tools show there’s a significant flaw in the pipeline, operators conduct integrity digs. In those digs, they uncover the pipeline and use sophisticated technology to inspect it further, so they can decide on the best courses of action.
