PinPoint EFM System - Corrosion Monitoring For Sour Gas Gathering Lines
- Internal corrosion monitoring in sour gas gathering lines is an on-going concern. Continually changing well conditions dramatically affect corrosion types, rates and severity. A gathering line may operate for years without any major corrosion concerns, then suddenly develop sharp pits with rapid growth.
- Compounded over hundreds of wells and thousands of miles of pipeline, achieving regulatory compliance while effectively and efficiently monitoring corrosion is a constant challenge faced by today's asset owners.
- The PinPoint EFM System is designed to help meet these needs, and has been applied to numerous sour gas gathering lines from Wellhead to Junction. It provides continuous, direct and non-intrusive monitoring.
- Where ILI or ICDA reveals areas of concern, the pipe can be field instrumented before or after replacement, and continuously and remotely monitored. Installations extend to high consequence and high susceptibility locations as a preventative measure during the planning and construction phase.
