Pipelines are the safest way to receive these products.
From the time we get up in the morning until we go to bed at night, it’s difficult to find a moment when we haven’t used energy transported by a pipeline. Gas may heat our homes, provide electricity and cook our food. Petroleum products made from oil power our planes, trains and automobiles. Oil is used to harvest the crops for our food and clothing, and get it to the stores.
Pipeline integrity means ensuring a pipeline and all its related components are running properly. In short, it’s about keeping the pipeline safe for life.
Everything is done to ensure pipelines are designed, built and operated to be safe, reliable and sustainable. We focus on pipeline integrity through every aspect of the pipeline life cycle – from design and construction to maintenance and decommissioning.
Technology advances every day for the safe and environmentally responsible transport of oil and gas.
Important developments in pipeline design, corrosion-resistant coatings, inspection methods and monitoring systems are making existing pipelines and new ones, safer.
More than 25.000 km of pipelines are installed every year worldwide, and demand is continually rising. The construction, operation, maintenance and rehabilitation of pipelines require the best materials, techniques and employees.
