We currently provide our services as mentioned in these regulations for Preventative and Mitigative Measures for Transmission, Gathering, Production, and Distribution Pipeline Companies.

ECDA Projects — External Corrosion Direct Assessment
(ECDA) is a structured process used to evaluate buried onshore ferrous pipeline integrity. The ECDA goal is to enhance safety by managing the risk of pipeline corrosion failures while minimizing the cost required for excavations and repairs. ECDA may also be used when more established methods such as in-line inspection (ILI) and pressure testing are not possible or not practical. NACE Standard Recommended Practice on Pipeline External Corrosion Direct Assessment Methodology (RP0502-2002) describes the ECDA process as allowing "...the prediction of susceptible areas where corrosion activity has occurred, is occurring or may occur."

Close Interval Potential Surveys
Close Interval Surveys (CIS) – also known as pipe-to-soil and potential gradient surveys – are one of several methods for assessing effectiveness of cathodic protection (CP) systems used on buried pipelines. Click here to view sample field plot

DCVG Surveys
Sophisticated electronics detect signal voltage gradients to provide rapid visual interpretations at defect locations. An easy-to-read meter panel and the convenience of several scales permits speedy location and assessment. Read more

ACVG Surveys
Alternating Current Voltage Gradient ACVG surveys are used for an indirect inspection tool as part of the ECDA program on the line. Through the use of Pipe Current Mapping PCM, which through the use of this trasmitter can pin-point coating anomalies and evaluate the protection of the pipe coatings. This process is very similar to the DCVG process except ACVG evaluates the coatings on pipelines by using a signal generator for alternate current.

PCM Surveys — Pipeline Current Mapping
The location and measurement of pipeline corrosion using electromagnetic detection devices (Locators) are increasingly being linked with GIS systems and GPS information, to provide an accurate record of the condition of pipes and the position and time co-ordinates for post mapping analysis – this requirement is the basis of the PCM+.

Rectifier Inspections
The rectifier is the heart of an impressed current cathodic protection system. As it is subject to many adverse conditions including power surges, lightning strikes, vandalism, physical damage, and deterioration from atmospheric exposure, frequent inspections of rectifiers are vital to keeping an impressed current system operating so that it can provide nearly continuous protection of the underground, or submerged structures that are being protected.
