Pipeline Innovations & Online Electronics - a unique and innovative partnership.
It is over a year now since Pipeline Innovations Limited (PIL) and Online Electronics Limited (OEL) began their collaboration. A unique and innovative partnership, it was implemented to integrate PIL’s pipeline data acquisition technologies with OEL’s existing tracking and locating expertise to develop a broader pipeline service capability across their international offices and as part of the wider IK-Worldwide Group portfolio. PIL’s full range of services includes pipeline proving, geometry surveys, pipeline data logging, debris mapping and assessment.
The collaboration has gone a long way to introduce PIL to a wider international audience with OEL’s regional offices in Houston, Singapore and Dubai providing a Sales and Marketing platform. In partnership with OEL, PIL exhibited and presented technical papers at several international seminars over the past 12 months - PPIM Houston, PTC Berlin, Offshore Europe Aberdeen, ADIPEC Abu Dhabi, Reliance Integrity Conference Mumbai and CNOOC Integrity Seminar Beijing. In addition, we arranged several client technology workshops in Jakarta, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Collecting plenty of air miles along the way we subsequently supported several interesting work scopes that will be featured in the blog over the coming months.
The collaboration has allowed us to work more closely with new and existing clients to support front end project engineering. We have collectively engineered solutions for difficult to pig and challenging pipelines, which in most cases had never been pigged before or had significant wax and scale build up. Working with the clients’ project teams the objective was to develop safe low risk methodologies, detailed pipeline pigging strategies, equipment specifications and supply. Scopes included pre-comm activities, initial proving, cleaning and inline inspection. In association with the IK-Worldwide Group and other technical partners we can provide and support a broad base of pipeline assessment, proving, cleaning, inspection, flow assurance and integrity services working with international pipeline operators and pipeline integrity service providers.
We’re here to help so don’t hesitate to contact us if you require any support with your pipeline pigging activities. #PigMyPipeline
