How imperative is pipeline integrity management?
If not managed well, oil and gas companies can face a slew of challenges in dealing with huge pipeline network, aging infrastructure, and timely maintenance. It is imperative to have a robust pipeline integrity management system to address these challenges. They need better integration between the integrity management system, inspection systems, SCADA system, and work and asset management systems to ensure limited latency in data capture. This increases their focus on data analysis and helps them take quick decisions to mitigate risks.
