In-Line Inspections of Pipelines

In-Line Inspections of Pipelines

In the mid 1960s, pipeline operators began to use a form of instrumented inspection technology that has evolved into what is known today as in-line inspection (ILI). ILI is but one tool used in pipeline integrity assessment. The technology has now become so reliable that it holds a prominent place in many operators’ integrity programs because when properly applied, ILI provides many economies and efficiencies in integrity assessment at a relatively small risk.

This course outlines a standard practice of related activities that a pipeline operator can use to plan, organize, and execute an ILI project. Guidelines pertaining to ILI data management and data analysis are included. It is applicable to carbon steel pipeline systems used to transport natural gas, hazardous liquids including those containing anhydrous ammonia, carbon dioxide, water including brine, liquefied petroleum gases (LPG), and other services that are not detrimental to the function and stability of ILI tools.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 3 PDH credits.
