Integrated Internal Inspection and Cleaning Tool Technology for Pipelines

The main objective of this research project is to develop an integrated and scalable cleaning and inspection tool that measures, records, and provides analysis of a range of parameters during conventional pipeline cleaning runs. Data collected will be used in trending and prioritization for indications of changing environments to improve integrity management through earlier response to integrity threats. The project represents step change in how the industry manages its integrity inspection program.
