Abstract: Trapil, one Europe’s leading refined product pipeline operators, has approximately 4,700km of pipeline in three networks in France. The Le Havre-Paris network has a number of dual-diameter 10-in and 12.75-in seamless lines in the Paris region. Built in the 1950s and 1960s, they are now located in heavily-populated areas where excavation to assess defects or perform repairs is difficult. Best in-line inspection practice for this type of line recommends the use of ultrasonic tools because of their depth-sizing accuracy and detection capabilities. The need for a dual-diameter, high-resolution, ultrasonic tool to survey six 10-12.75-in lines prompted Trapil to develop its own tool offering a variety of benefits, such as using the RSTRENG effective-area method to perform fitness-for-purpose calculations prior to excavation, and determining the shape of dents.
