Pipeline Integrity Management

Enhance your pipeline’s safety and reliability

Business Challenge

Growing safety and environmental concerns regarding pipeline management have led to new regulations and stricter requirements for pipeline operators to demonstrate and document their facility’s safe operations.  

Pipeline operators are expected to treat pipeline safety and integrity as a social accountability issue while facilitating access to data and ensuring transparency.  They are required to demonstrate and document the integrity of their pipeline facilities at all times as well as assess and mitigate risk factors.  

What is Pipeline Integrity Management?

Bureau Veritas offers a comprehensive integrated Pipeline Integrity Management (PIM) System which is a quality management system encompassing: 

  • Operation 

  • Inspection 

  • Maintenance 

  • Health, Safety & Environment (HSE)

  • Corporate communication

The aim of a PIM System is to set up a concise methodology which applies the same process to all pipelines, enabling homogenous decision making

What are the key benefits of a PIM System? 

A PIM System can vastly improve the safety of your pipelines by:

  • Taking into account results from previous years in order to compare, analyze and update data. 

  • Allowing operators to reflect on their best practices, remaining compliant with the latest regulations and adopting the most appropriate standards

  • Identifying and analyzing actual and potential threats, ensuring data integrity

Why Choose Bureau Veritas?

Bureau Veritas brings a wealth of experience in many integrity management related fields such as Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (QHSE), System Certification, Risk Assessment, Fitness-For-Service Evaluation and Risk-Based Inspection.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why a “Threat-Based Approach”?

    Safety in the oil & gas industry is paramount as well as meeting concurrent economic constraints which every operator must face. 

    Traditionally, only the impact of pipelines on the surrounding environment has been considered (consequences in terms of pollution, fatalities, etc. in the case of a loss of containment). 

    However, Bureau Veritas has developed a methodology looking at pipeline threat levels. By analyzing the integrity of the pipeline, we can consider the impact of the surrounding environmental conditions (the population, the soil, the type of fluid, etc.) on the pipelines.
