We have been qualified by Pipelines & Communications company (affiliate company of NIOC) ,for participation in their cross country pipelines pigging project.
Intelligent pigs are used extensively for inspecting pipelines. Their use is increasing rapidly, thanks to their proven benefits, expanding capabilities, and legislative requirements. To provide a proper response to the high local demand for in-line inspection, Petro Pala Gas Co. has set partnership with world renowned companies such as Tech-so srl from Italy. In this sense our company is in a position to perform in-line inspection by employing intelligent pigs, no matter the size and the length. The result of an intelligent pig inspection is an inspection report with a list of defects. To gain the full benefit from an inspection the client (pipeline operator) must understand the inspection process, and what the list of defects means for the immediate and the future integrity and maintenance of the pipeline. Running an intelligent pig in a pipeline is a significant project with potential safety and operational implications. Any pigging operation should be carefully planned to ensure that the correct tool is used, that appropriate pipeline cleaning is carried out, the pig will not get stuck, contingency measures are in place to locate and remove a stuck pig, and that safe procedures for pig launching, receiving, and handling are followed.
