Posted by Shelly on Aug 9, 2017 10:00:00 AM

To say that a leaking pipeline is no good may be the understatement of all time. We hear about the major pipeline leaks and spills, but what about leaks that happen closer to home? Like inside your house or business. Would you know what to look for and what to do when a pipe leak is suspected? 

It’s simple, really, and starts with your senses. Use your nose, eyes, and ears to stop a potentially unstable situation before it becomes worse.

Posted by Shelly on Apr 19, 2017 9:00:00 AM

To effectively manage the integrity and safety of your pipeline, you must have a risk assessment plan; and this plan must make validating and understanding risk results a top priority.

When was the last time you updated your plan?

Here at Integrity Plus, we have been in the risk assessment business for awhile. We work with a wide variety of operators and assessment types, performing various risk implementations, including both qualitative and quantitative risk models. We’d love to help you update and strengthen your plan!

In today's pipeline industry, resources are scarce but the work to be completed is overwhelming. With ongoing surveys, new construction, acquisitions, and inspections, pipeline operators are producing more data than ever but have fewer resources than ever to manage it.

That's where we come in. Integrity Plus offers onsite and temporary staffing services to help with ILI alignments, data capture, centerline corrections, job books, and many other GIS data management services. Our team is trained on the latest applications, local, and available to operators who need supplemental staff immediately.

What Are HCAs and Why Do They Matter?

Posted by Shelly on Apr 13, 2016 10:00:00 AM

In the world of pipelines, HCA stands for High Consequence Area. These are pretty important concepts; so important, actually, that New Century Software has created two applications that help determine HCAs:

  • Spill Impact Analyst: Looks for environmental-type HCAs; for example: drinking water and protected lands.
  • Gas HCA: Looks for HCAs by population.

 

So let’s take a closer look at HCAs and why they are so very important.

Have you been pronouncing it incorrectly all along? I plead the 5th!) kicked off March 13th, and we thought that we’d delve into the reasons behind and seek out the answer to the proverbial question: Why the heck do we change our clocks, anyway?
