Investigations have shown that the main causes of serious consequences from leak events were related to insufficient maintenance and knowledge of the leak detection system and correct alarm management, which could have been avoided by regular checks.
The PipePatrol Health Check is a complete audit of the pipeline leak detection techniques and management approaches to check all areas of leak detection on an operator‘s pipeline or pipeline network with the goal of ensuring that all the required areas of leak detection are functioning properly.
The most comprehensive audit powered by leak detection experts
The PipePatrol Health Check is the most comprehensive audit program available for pipeline leak detection and covers the physical state of the system, performance of the system, compliance with standards and regulations including API, 49 CFR 195, CSA Z662 and TRFL and fundamental aspects such as the readiness of an organisation to deal with an emergency. It is performed by specialists based on over 35 years of experience in leak detection on over 400 pipeline projects.
Highly customisable to your needs
A PipePatrol Health Check can be started with a subset of tests to guarantee the most critical issues are addressed. Later, the test program can be extended to full coverage and a long-term test strategy can be implemented. In this way, continuous reliability and improvement are possible. In any case, initial and reoccurring testing of the system is recommended or required by regulation to guarantee consistent performance during the whole lifetime of the system.
