Pipeline IntegrityPipeline Integrity is a core service for Blade Energy Partners. Blade engineers on an average have over 15 to 20 years of experience in pipeline integrity from an operator’s perspective and services perspective. This normally translates to a value-added engineering solution for pipeline operators.
In the last eight years, such services have been provided to various gas pipelines, including 24”-36” ,both gas and liquid lines, 16” and 26” systems , 12” offshore (subsea) and 24” on-shore liquid pipelines, 12” liquid pipelines, 12” to 30” pipeline , 8”-30” both gas and liquid lines and 30” Gas lines in South America. The integrity assessment projects include internal and external corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, mechanical damage, transient flow modeling, failure analysis, risk assessment and life prediction, and fitness-for-service.
Blade Energy is extensively involved in the cutting edge research of pipeline integrity technologies. Multiple research projects have been funded by Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) and government agencies (DOT PHMSA); we have also had pipeline operators fund relevant research projects that have immediate impact on pipeline integrity and safety.
