With its Total Pipeline Integrity offerings, ATCO puts broadbased engineering skills and decades of experience at the service of pipeline operators. The old approach to evaluating structural integrity – rule-of-thumb guidelines, with excessive safety margins – no longer makes sense in today’s highly competitive business climate.
Never before has technology been better able to serve the pipeline industry. The ability to monitor minute changes in pipeline condition with a high degree of confidence has led to continuous advances in risk based assessment and integrity planning techniques.
The result is, as a rule, more effective maintenance at a lower cost, satisfying regulators, customers and shareholders.
Nevertheless, developing and applying a pipeline integrity program is not always straight forward. To assist in identifying the best possible solutions to major integrity issues, ATCO has assembled a number of Integrity Packages, each one focusing on a critical aspect of pipeline operation. Each package draws on many services developed over decades and fine-tuned through experience; and each is adaptable in every way to the specific needs of each customer.
From providing individual Integrity Services on a caseby- case basis, to undertaking complete responsibility for Pipeline Integrity Management, ATCO has the pipeline integrity solutions operators need, structured just the way they want.
