Classification of pipeline risk relies on deeply considered formal root-cause model that considers all contributing factors leading to defect initiation, and corrosion growth.
Annual Cathodic Protection (CP) system operational audits can be extended on low-risk pipeline systems, providing cost savings.
TRIAGE classifies pipelines according to likelihood of failure, positioning the owner to schedule meaningful over-the-line coating surveys, and targeted in-line inspections to validate integrity of high-risk assets.
The notion that time-based regulatory directives that demand annual CP system performance audits has proven insufficient to prevent pipeline failures. TRIAGE positions the owner to "appropriately schedule" CP performance audits, and to concurrently perform additional value-added maintenance on the highest risk pipelines.
Consideration of operating environment in combination with installation practices.
Consideration of CP system effectiveness in combination with operating and environmental conditions.
Consideration of spatial relationship in relation to spatial industry performance patterns with consideration of sibling association to historical failure events.
We appreciate your support, and look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.
