Pipeline Integrity Management (PIM)

PIM is planning, organizing, executing and controlling all pipeline risk and integrity, through inspection and monitoring, and maintenance program in order to operate the oil and gas pipeline safely and reliably in the most cost effective way. It is a process that includes inspection of pipeline facilities, evaluating the indications resulting from the inspections, examining the pipe using a variety of techniques, evaluating the results of the examinations, and characterizing the evaluation by defect type and severity and determining the resulting integrity of the pipeline through analysis. The PIMS backbone is risk management and data management which is  generally accompanied by GIS along its ROW.
