In-Line-Inspection (ILI)


    In-line Inspection (ILI), is detecting defects from the inside of the pipe with various sensor technologies mounted on tools moving with the product. This is a common method to assure integrity of a pipeline. In the first day of two day course, the sensors and approaches used for defect detection by ILI tools are presented, including the capability and limitations of each. In the second half of this session, approaches for the interpretation and application of ILI results for pipeline integrity are presented. The approach include methods to sift thru the reams of data trying to answer the common question that pipeline integrity engineers face: “What do I do after I get the inspection report?”.

    Course Topics Include:
    • Magnetic flux leakage, the most commonly used ILI tool for
    detecting metal loss
    • Other metal loss tools
    • Verification of inspection results
    • Crack ILI tools for liquid pipelines
    • Excavation and repair strategies
    • Crack ILI tools for gas pipelines
    • Tool specifications and performance measures
    • Industry standards including NACE 0102 & API 1163
    • Re-inspection timing and tool considerations

    For over 25 years, Applus+ Engineering staff have presented fundamental and accepted strategies for maintaining safe pipelines. We are pleased to announce the development of a structured series of online courses to provide training on fundamental pipeline integrity concepts and methods. The material in these courses provide the fundamental concepts of the effects of defects and imperfections on pipelines as well as methods for preventing, assessing, and mitigating them. The intended audience are pipeline company engineers e new or have only a few years of experience in integrity management. An introduction to pipeline defects, cathodic protection, defect assessment, in-line inspection, pipeline repair and hydrostatic testing are some of the topics presented in this workshop. More in-depth programs on these topics will available in future workshops. Sessions can be taken individually; however, registering for all sessions provides a price reduction and the benefit of having comprehensive pipeline integrity training.
