Pipeline Integrity Management Services
Wood Group Integrity Management ("WGIM") increased effectiveness and streamlined operations while carefully evaluating risks associated with managing a pipeline.
Client: TOTAL Indonesia
Location: Mahakan Delta in East Kalimantan Province, Borneo
The pipeline system consists of a network of over 240 pipelines ranging in diameter from 6" to 42" and with a total combined length of 1150 kilometres. WGIM, through our Indonesian sister company, PT Wood Group Indonesia, was contracted by Total Indonesia (TI) to develop and implement a pipeline integrity management system (PIMS) that included a risk-based inspection (RBI) programme.
The two-year project included a detailed assessment of the company's existing management system using an assessment matrix developed by WGIM. The matrix identified 15 key management elements including aspects such as HSE, procedures, communication, integrity management and audits.
The company's system was analysed and assessed against industry best practice, and we developed a framework of benchmarks to be used to improve the existing management system. These benchmarks were also used during the audit process, to analyse system effectiveness.
WGIM also conducted risk assessments on all the pipelines, the results of which were modelled using 4-Site (risk-based inspection software developed by Netlink Inspection in association with WGIM) to rank the associated risks and provide a schedule for risk-directed inspection of the pipelines.
