Wood Group’s asset integrity management team has extensive experience in addressing integrity issues following guidelines established by the US regulators agencies.
Wood Group has a highly experienced team in pipeline, onshore and facilities integrity management encompassing a broad range of domestic and international projects for oil and gas companies, chemical plants, pipeline tank terminals, farm tanks, and distribution and transmissions pipelines. The pipelines range from 3-inch to 42-inch diameters, with lengths ranging from less than one mile to lines hundreds of miles long. We customise each program according to the type of project and the products being stored or transported, developing a strategy that best suits the client, while ensuring regulations compliance.
Our experts utilise assessment and inspection techniques, coupled with the most up-to-date and sophisticated tools, to accurately detect and correct anomalies. Wood Group’s integrity management team members are accredited by NACE International and follow its guidelines as well as other pipeline-related standards from ASME, API, and ASTM.

Integrity and Regulatory Compliance
Pipelines and facilities operators are committed to an error-free, spill-free, and incident-free operation of the oil and gas infrastructure to prevent adverse effects on the public, employees, the environment, and property. In support of this commitment, Wood Group assists with the implementation and execution of the integrity management plan (IMP) to maintain the structural integrity of the oil and gas infrastructure that could affect high-consequence areas (HCAs).
Wood Group has experience writing and implementing the IMP to comply with the DOT/PHMSA requirements set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations for hazardous liquid pipeline integrity management in high-consequence areas (49 CFR 195.452).
