At SKW, we specialize in helping pipeline operators manage the powerful systems that carry energy resources across the country. It is essential that proper integrity management protocols be developed to extend design life, ensure safety, avoid costly downtime and meet regulatory requirements.
Our experienced team of inspectors, surveyors and engineers, are Operator Qualified (OQed) to comprehensively support pipeline integrity through external corrosion direct assessments (ECDA), internal corrosion direct assessments (ICDA), project management, in-line inspection, corrosion mitigation and prevention, and ongoing evaluation, assessment and maintenance.
Comprehensive Integrity Solutions
Threat identification and assessment is essential to properly prioritizing and addressing pipeline integrity. Our team is experienced with identifying high consequence areas (HCAs) and moderate consequence areas (MCAs), and determining threats using threat classifications and categories outlined in ASME B31.8S to determine if direct assessment is applicable.
Leveraging their experience and expertise, our team determines what tool will best assess the corrosion and corrosion threats as well as which solution will best protect the integrity of the pipe, whether it be cathodic protection, AC mitigation, coatings or other solutions. Then, based on the assessments and analysis, we provide actionable plans for addressing anomalies and compromised sections. To complete SKW’s end-to-end integrity solutions, SKW’s integrity construction team offers pipeline excavation, direct assessment anomaly digs, hydrostatic testing, MAOP validation and cathodic protection installs.
SKW’s offers comprehensive pipeline integrity survey services, including close interval surveys, soil resistivity tests, and alternating current and direct current voltage gradients. Since the company’s inception, SKW has provided a diverse range of the industry’s most innovative, reliable and visionary surveying services.
