Across the globe, Inline inspection (ILI) is the preferred method for detecting and measuring a wide range of faults in operational pipelines. We operate a comprehensive range of ILI technologies and tool sizes to suit the needs of onshore and offshore, gas and liquid pipeline operators worldwide. Our ILI services are fully supported by specialised reporting and analysis software and are designed to locate and measure a wide variety of pipeline faults.
In addition to ILI tools, we provide a wide variety of pigging solutions for a range of applications, including pipeline bore-proving / gauging, pipeline cleaning, and profiling for the safe passage of specific ILI tools.
Our ILI services include both conventionally-driven and bi-directional tools and are based on:
Axial-Field Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)
Transverse-Field Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)
Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) / XYZ
Inspipe operates a range of inspection and quality assurance services for pipelines and other engineering structures. We operate worldwide with extensive experiences of the energy sector, including the oil, gas and renewable energy industries. Other areas within our experiences include ship building, dry dock ships and rigs.
All services are delivered globally by a team of highly qualified inspectors. NDT methods can be combined to provide an integrated analysis of a structure’s integrity based on multiple-technology evaluations.
As a part of our development program, we support our services with advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Automation. This delivers many benefits for clients, including enhanced economy, better repeatability and higher quality results.

PIPELINE INTEGRITY SERVICES
Good integrity management means end-to-end regulatory compliance and this demand drives our full range of integrity services. Our credentials are acknowledged worldwide, as are our highly qualified and experienced people, our enviable track record and exceptional technical capabilities..
Inspipe Integrity delivers a full range of integrity assessments to support pipeline operators, including:
Fitness for Service (FFS)
Detailed FFS assessment to characterise and assess the impact of threats onimmediate and future integrity
ILI Run Comparison & Corrosion Growth
Assessment comparing 2 or more sets of ILI data
Corrosion growth rates quantified along the pipeline
Box matching / signal comparison, complemented by segmentation to avoid conservatism
Dent Strain Assessments
Quantification of dent strains from geometry tool data, laser scans or satellite ground movement surveys
Bending Strain Analysis

IM SOFTWARE SYSTEMS
The integrity management of pipelines and other engineering assets is a highly complex process involving vast amounts of data. Since integrity management is necessay in every part of a client’s business operations, proven software solutions must be available for areas as diverse as structural integrity, product storage, metering and SCADA.
Inspipe installs, commissions and maintains client-based and cloud-based software systems to support key processes, including:
Threat Assessment and Threat Management
High Consequence Area (HCA) Identification
Inspection Data Optimization
Data Acquisition & Monitoring
Data Uploads, Data Alignment, Integration and Verification
Data Silo Merging
Operator Data Systems, including Field Operatives Data
Metering & Product Reconciliation

SATELLITE SURVEYS & MONITORING
Inspipe delivers Satellite Remote Sensing technology and Geospatial Analytics to support the integrity management of pipelines and other assets, and to develop business and governance solutions. Data from space borne sensors are used to measure changes and activity in the microwave, infrared and visible spectrums, allowing the observation of key phenomena that could otherwise be missed by conventional methods. From monitoring hydrocarbon pipelines, water resources and critical infrastructure, we can provide valuable insights to enable businesses and governments to make better informed decisions.
Satellite Remote Sensing technology and Geospatial Analytics
Measurement of changes and activity in microwave, IR and visible spectrums
Monitoring of hydrocarbon pipelines, water resources and critical infrastructure
Provision of valuable information and vital services for better informed decisions
In the case of pipelines, Active and Passive Satellite Remote Sensing is based on Infrared (IR), Radiometry, Microwave, Visual, Laser and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) methods.
These systems are used in a wide range of measurements.
