Planning and carrying out integrity management programs (IMP) requires a full understanding of regulations, industry practices, pipeline operations, materials science, and the mechanisms involved with program implementation (i.e. assessment methods, maintenance/remediation, data integration, trending, etc.). Our approach is augmented by an in-depth knowledge and understanding of pertinent codes and regulations to include CSA Z662, ASME B31.8S, CFR 195.452, CFR 192 Subpart O, and API 1160.
