     In line Inspection Operations is a focused 5 day course that combines practical exercises running a range of pigs in a test loop with detailed lectures on pig types, pigging operations, in line inspection technology (ILI) and inspection data. It includes workshop talks and demonstrations of various pig set ups and the pig preparations required prior to running in a pipeline.


    The course is structured to link the theory and written detail (as shown in the lecture program) with actual practical sessions at the test loop. Each day of the course has both theory and practical elements and is designed to demonstrate how a typical program for a pigging project is planned and undertaken right through to inspection data reports and feature location.

Who should attend:

    The course is ideal for engineers and technical personnel who are both new to, or experienced in pigging. The course is of particular interest to those who are involved in the processes of pig selection, planning pigging projects, supervising pigging operations or project management of pigging activities.

Course Objectives:

    To provide information on pig types and technology and give an overview of ILI data reporting, whilst also providing details of pipeline preparation, project planning, procedures (such as how to launch and receive pigs), general operations and safety related to pigging activities.

Course Content:

              • The syllabus covers: proving, cleaning, in line inspection pigging and associated activities.

              • Pig design, methods and pigging philosophy are also explained, together with

                 guidance on the type of documentation and information required when planning and

                 running a pigging campaign.

              • Activities at the loop include; running a range of different pigs

                 (proving through to ILI), tracking and feature location.

              • Introduction

              • Regulations, Operators and ILI vendors


              • Defects that can fail a pipeline

              • ILI for metal loss defects

              • ILI for cracking defects

              • ILI for deformation defects

              • Combination defects (interacting defects)


              • ILI performance specifications and their origins

              • Industry Standards and other documentation on ILI

              • Was the ILI run good?

              • Is the ILI report good?

              • How to generate confidence in the integrity of a pipeline using ILI

              • Round-up questions
