The need for this e-guide

Finding adequate inspection solutions for unpiggable pipelines is fast becoming an industry priority.

Approximately three quarters of gas pipelines in the United States were not built with in-line inspection (ILI) in mind, and considerable preplanning and capital expense would be required to alter the pipeline infrastructure. These issues include those relating to access, low pressure or low flow, multi-diameter pipelines, and physical barriers. If not adequately inspected, these pipelines can be a threat to the population.

Advances and best practice in integrity and maintenance methods for unpiggable pipelines are being made, and it is important that pipeline owners and operators are aware of the methods to suit their situation.
