Preventive pipeline maintenance will eliminate potential problems and enable maximum efficiency by keeping systems clean. Zephyr Oilfield offers replacement, repair and maintenance services of a multitude of distribution delivery systems. Whether a new system is going online or an existing system needs maintenance, our range of services will meet your needs, while adhering to pipeline safety regulations.
Debris in the pipeline can corrode your system and increasing operating costs. Our cleaning methods allow us to match your pipeline conditions and ensure debris removal. We clean crude oil, refined products, water, natural gas, and specialized petrochemical pipelines, including difficult-to-treat ethylene systems.
Regular maintenance increases pipeline safety with inspection, testing, cleaning, and drying. We tailor our services to suit your specific project, providing you a more cost-effective solution. We have pipeline inspection tools to examine the issues that can cause you problems, such as corrosion, pipeline movement, mechanical damage, or problems with cathodic protection. Before you put the line back into service, we will hydrotest it to ensure pipeline integrity and perform pipeline drying so the product meets specifications.
Performing routine pipeline maintenance can include the following:
- Patrols to ensure rights-of-way are clear and accessible, while maintaining security to detect and prevent unauthorized activity.
- Pipe-to-Soil and Close Interval inspections to verify that pipelines are in good condition and free of corrosion. Leak surveys verify pipeline integrity.
- Pipelines valves throughout the system are inspected to verify proper function. Isolation valves are used to divide the pipeline into sections when conducting maintenance and in case of an emergency.
- Clearing rights-of-ways to provide the accessibility to respond to pipeline emergencies in a timely manner and to patrol the rights-of-way. This allows for verification that no unwarranted activity could endanger the safety of the people working or living near the pipeline.
