Abstract: PIPELINE OPERATORS HAVE been quick to adopt technological advances in a number of areas, including in-line inspection (ILI). However, when it comes to evaluating flaws and other damage detected by ILI and other means, much of the pipeline industry still relies on simplified assessment methodologies that don’t take advantage of all data sources and improved understanding of failure mechanisms. This paper makes the case that adopting new technologies for flaw assessment is overdue, as these technological advances will be beneficial to the industry.

This paper presents four case studies to demonstrate typical applications of advanced flaw assessment technology:

An automated pressure-cycle-fatigue analysis (PCFA) system that processes SCADA data and generates reports in nearly real time.
Advanced analysis of dents and wrinkle bends using ILI data.
Finite-element modelling of overpressure events.
Virtual-burst-test simulation.
