United States operators must inspect each individual pipeline or portion of pipeline exposed to the atmosphere for evidence of atmospheric corrosion at least every three years, with intervals not exceeding 39 months for onshore pipes. The Exposed Pipe Collector solution can be used to help meet this compliance requirement by allowing field crews to locate and inspect exposed pipes using a smartphone or tablet device in the field.
Using this solution and the Collector for ArcGIS application allows field crews to collect exposed pipe locations and inspections regardless of connectivity to the office network, assuming cellular coverage is available.
Exposed Pipe Collector requires specific technical experience and software.
