Pipeline Analysis


PIPELINE ANALYSIS

Analytical Techniques


Pipeline Analysis is one of the most widely used methods to investigate internal/external corrosion mechanisms in the oil and gas industry. It is a technique that has been used extensively over the years to reduce costly shut downs and lessen the environmental impact due to corrosion related failures. The key to a successful corrosion mitigation strategy is to have a monitoring program that provides insight into the local conditions of the pipeline. At Rysco Corrosion Services, we utilize several supporting analytical techniques and visual characterization of corrosion mechanisms to aid in the determination of a root cause.




Failure Analysis


The purpose of this investigation is to provide an estimate of the suspected internal/external corrosion mechanisms that has contributed to the failure on the pipeline segment. The identification of potential internal/external corrosion mechanisms are generally concentrated on the use of pit morphology and position. Analytical testing can also be performed during these examinations to aid in the determination of corrosion mechanisms.



Pipeline Analysis


The purpose of this investigation is to visually examine pipeline coupon cut outs and evaluate the condition of the provided pipeline segment. Coating adhesion, pit measurements/depths, bacterial testing, and solids deposition collection are some of the parameters reported by Rysco Corrosion Services. Our team understands numerous corrosion related issues in varying process systems. This knowledge is then applied to the pipeline coupon cut out during the visual examination. Determining the corrosion mechanisms (often using supportive analytical testing of solids/liquids) is important so our clients can make informative decisions when developing/improving their mitigation strategy.





ILI Verification


The purpose of this investigation is to correlate the ILI data to physical measurements on the pipeline coupon cut out. The correlation between the ILI data and the physical measurements is used as an evaluation of the accuracy of the ILI data. Rysco Corrosion Services can also perform a thorough examination of pipeline coupon cut out, providing wall loss anomaly mapping/identification along with applied analytical techniques to identify corrosion mechanisms. The identification of potential internal corrosion mechanisms is generally concentrated on the use of pit morphology and metal loss position. Analytical testing can also be performed during these examinations to aid in the determination of corrosion mechanisms.
