Unpiggable UT – Pipeline Surveyor
Pipelines have been installed worldwide for many years, and more often than not, once operational, are left without any planned maintenance and their internal condition often remains unknown. The normal management approach has been to prioritize on a failure consequence basis, selecting maintenance and inspection options on a failure mode and effects analysis.
Policies have changed over the years. As uptime becomes increasingly precious, replacement increasingly expensive, and external and internal integrity demands more stringent, inspection of these lines has become more important.
Intero has been active in the field of unpiggable pipeline inspection since the mid-90s and has developed specialized tools, methods, and equipment to allow inspection of even the most challenging lines.
Over the years, Intero has specialized in unpiggable pipelines and has formed a unique concept based on extensive experience in the field.
Intero provides custom engineering, pigging solutions, high-tech research, and software solutions to match the client’s needs. This has led to the ongoing development of pigging and inspection equipment and services which are aimed at providing insight to the integrity of non-piggable pipelines, ranging from 4” to 64” and located from subsea offshore to remote areas around the world. This includes dual diameter solutions, single entry, dual diameter configurations and ultra-high resolution equipment.
