INTERNAL PIPELINE SERVICES
The team at Internal Pipeline Services provides over 100 years of combined experience in the pipeline preservation field. They have extensive international experience with a proven track record in handling extreme environments and conditions, both onshore and offshore.
Throughout the years, a number of technologies have been introduced to tackle the variety of corrosion problems that exist in oilfield pipelines. IPS has improved upon a 60-year-old technology known as in-situ, or in-place, coating. After the internal pipe wall is thoroughly cleaned by abrasive blasting or by a system that combines progressive pigging and chemical cleaning, several coats of a suitable protective coating are applied. The IPS process is distinctive in its use of pipeline pigs to apply the protective coating.
Whether your pipeline requires cleaning prior to a corrosion tool inspection to increase throughput, or to reduce corrosion, IPS offers a wide range of cost-effective solutions. With a sheer commitment to quality and the highest dedication to customer service, IPS is the best choice for your pigging needs.
IPS’ multi-stage In-Situ preparation and coating process has proven to be extremely effective in completely and uniformly covering the entire length of pipeline with a continuous epoxy barrier.
IPS’ abrasive blasting process is an internal cleaning method that injects hard cleaning particles into a gaseous medium. These cleaning particles impact the internal surface of the pipe wall, removing oxides and hard scale deposits, leaving a minimum NACE 1 finish.
IPS utilizes a multi-stage system that consists of both mechanical and chemical cleaning. Prior to coating, IPS will determine that the proper level of cleanliness has been achieved.
