Pipeline Integrity

Empowering operators to assess and manage risk

Natural gas utilities face numerous challenges in maintaining the integrity of their systems, and new tools, methodologies and technologies can improve the accuracy of integrity inspections or reduce the costs associated with implementing an integrity management program. Industry needs to make data-driven, risk-based decisions for critical infrastructure to address risk management and mitigation issues.

Data and integrity management are a core focus at GTI. We are developing and evaluating technology, protocols, models, and training to help LDCs meet pipeline and distribution integrity management requirements.

GTI’s world-renown experts have specialized technical capabilities, along with extensive laboratories, proprietary databases, and data visualization capabilities to enhance the level of understanding of threats to infrastructure and allow operators to predict asset performance, calculate system risk, and maximize safety. Our researchers are using advanced modeling and analysis tools to transfer this body of knowledge into a useful set of tools.
