The intelligent pigs are more often termed as inline inspection (ILI) pigs. Different types of pigs are used to perform a number of tasks. For example, utility pigs are used in cleaning, watering, batching, and dewatering of pipelines; while inline inspection pigs are used for gathering data pertaining to the anomalies present in the pipeline. There are special duty pigs called plugs that are used for isolating pipelines and repairing defected parts without affecting the flow of operations. Post information gathering activity, plugs can be used to isolate the pipeline during a repair. Inspection pigs are used to evaluate wall thickness and extent of weathering/rust in the line and provide timely information to operators regarding the safety and operability of the line.
Conventionally, operators conduct a tedious and cost-inefficient hydrostatic testing to detect any kind of defect inside a pipeline.The evolution of ILI has helped them maximize the utilization of process by aggregating the reliability of non-destructive testing.
Apart from this, pipeline agencies, as well as various regulatory bodies, adopted smart inspection tools to ensure safety.Although the pigging industry has taken enormous steps in quality inspection, it still faces numerous challenges.
The tools used for inspection are not reliable enough and still have certain drawbacks in flaw detection at times, especially while tracing tiny errors.Additionally, occasional trapping of inspection tool inside a pipeline leads to high repairs and maintenance costs to the market players.
Investing in research to find equipment that would be fool proof and evaluate all the possibilities of tracing errors without disrupting normal operations is the area of focus for the service providers of these intelligent tools in the market.
Growing regulatory concerns pertaining to the maintenance of pipelines, and increasing population and energy demands in the region have been bolstering the growth of the intelligent pipeline pigging market in Africa.
