Effectively consider all areas of pipeline integrity management

Pipelines require careful management, particularly in sensitive environments such as high consequence areas (HCAs). A combined approach and way of thinking are necessary to effectively consider all the areas of pipeline integrity management (PIM).

In this World Pipelines feature, Dr Jun Zhang, CEO of Atmos International discusses why a combined approach to PIM is vital to tackle the three pillars of responsibility:

  • Social – protecting people and communities, especially in high consequence areas and large population density areas
  • Economic – de-risking, cost and liability management
