Methane Emissions Reduction System in Pipeline Compressor Stations: ENAGAS & BAKER HUGHES Experience

Baker Hughes / Enagás
Baker Hughes / Enagás
Methane is the second most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) after carbon dioxide: it is estimated1 that its concentration in the atmosphere is approximately 2.6x higher than the pre-industrial levels and this contributes for at least 25% of the global warming. As methane is the main component of natural gas, a strong reduction of its...

A New Phased Array Sensor for Pipeline Inspection – Optimization and Quantitative Performance Evaluation

Baker Hughes
Baker Hughes
The phased array technique allows for a flexible adaption of the ultrasonic inspection techniques for a large range of applications. By using it in the area of pipeline inspection various inspection modes can be performed simultaneously. That was the reason for Baker Hughes (previously PII Pipeline Solutions) to develop an inspection tool based on...

Long Distance Inline Inspection of an Unpiggable Natural Gas Pipeline with Robotic Technology

Intero Integrity
Intero Integrity
In-line inspection (ILI) is a pipeline assessment method used by operators to receive a comprehensive integrity assessment of their pipeline. However, ILI may become unfeasible due to factors such as insufficient flow/pressure parameters for propulsion, pipeline features such as valves, back-toback elbows and unbarred tees, as well as the lack of...

Advances in In-Field ILI Indication and Material Verification

Rosen Group
Rosen Group
Post in-line inspection (ILI) digs are essential tools in the integrity arsenal to validate and verify ILI tool performance and provide data for use in post-ILI integrity assessments. In addition, dig verification can be utilized to validate material properties, increase confidence in feature characterization or even replace previously lost records...
