Cased Pipeline Inspection Cased Pipeline Inspection

Pipeline operators located in the United States who operate cased pipelines can now benefit from the robotic cased pipeline inspection services of ULC Robotics combined with the corrosion engineering expertise of Southern Cathodic Protection Company. Working together, ULC and SCPC will be performing inspection of cased pipeline to gather critical visual and sensor data.

Southern Cathodic Protection Company, located in Atlanta, GA, with a satellite office in Apopka, FL, has signed on as the regional sales representative of ULC’s Cased Pipeline Inspection services. Through SCPC, cased pipeline inspection services are available in Alabama, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas,  Florida and West Virginia.Since 1979, Southern Cathodic Protection Company has been working with a wide range of oil and gas companies, utilities, government agencies, pipeline companies and storage facilities to provide corrosion protection services and specialized equipment.“I’ve never met a team of people so dedicated and knowledgeable about corrosion engineering,” says Gregory Penza, President of ULC Robotics. “We are all very excited to be working with Southern Cathodic Protection Company and look forward to expanding our robotic cased pipeline inspection services together.”
 

ULC’s magnetic crawler enters the annular space of a cased pipeline by magnetically attaching to and crawling along the casing pipe. At an inch and a quarter high, the crawler is small enough to travel past spacers and access hundreds of feet of cased pipe. From the annular space, the inspection device can look for visual signs of damage, measure the thickness of the carrier pipe using a double-echo ultrasonic thickness sensor, gather temperature and humidity readings and even use lasers to help measure pipeline defects.

Transportation of Natural Gas by Pipeline, Part 192, Minimum Federal Safety Standards, Subpart O, Gas Transmission Pipeline Integrity Management requires assessment to ascertain the condition of a covered pipeline segment. An operator that uses direct assessment to assess the threat of external corrosion must evaluate the covered segment for coating damage. Guidelines for Integrity Assessment of Cased Pipe for Gas Transmission Pipelines in HCAs as outlined in PHMSA Revision 1, dated November 1, 2010, requires an operator to visually examine the entire length of a carrier pipe within the casing.The ULC magnetic crawler meets this requirement.
