Pipeline Integrity Services
Pipeline integrity services from SGS – in-trench evaluation of pipeline anomalies, in support of in-line inspection programs performed by pipeline operators.
Accurate identification and evaluation of anomalies in pipelines, using non-destructive examination (NDE) is a must to avoid unnecessary repairs, and failure to inspect items that have been overlooked (mischaracterized, or under called). Our pipeline integrity services deliver inspections with techniques and technologies specially developed, or modified, for use in thin walled steel (<0.500”).
What are the main features and benefit of this service?
Our procedures and reporting system enable operators to comply with regulatory audits. Reports for pipeline inspections are generated by technicians from the collected data, and are then given a 100% check by our quality review team prior to being posted to customers. Preliminary reports can be delivered quickly if needed.

- Non-Destructive Examination:
- UT Straight beam
- UT Shear wave
- UT FAST (Our proprietary technique)
- Phased Array UT

In addition to NDE, we can provide technicians and systems capable of providing all inspection data associated with a dig program. This could include coating inspection, weld inspection, excavation inspection, GPS data and soil data.
Why use SGS?
