Linc Energy systems not only sells leading products to the natural gas industry, but we also have a reputable service division devoted to pipeline patrolling to help keep our clients in compliance with DOT/PHMSA regulations. Recently we conducted a patrolling project and this post shares some of the key insights on the project that are helpful to patrolling technicians.
The DOT/PHMSA requires that pipeline owners maintain their natural gas pipelines, and patrolling is a requirement for transmission lines. Pipeline patrolling is an inspection of natural gas pipelines to identify irregularities that are, or can become, a hazard so that they can be repaired.
Linc Energy Systems conducts patrolling of natural gas pipelines, mandated by DOT/PHMSA regulations. The rules require that underground pipes be maintained and make available appropriate documentation supporting it. This applies to all gas lines, whether transmission or distribution, and whether public or private. In an earlier post, I share the leak survey requirements. This article pertains to the regulations of patrolling transmission lines.
While Linc Energy Systems is known for providing leading products to the natural gas industry, we also have a reputable service division devoted to performing natural gas leak surveys. Here is a review of a recent project we conducted in New Mexico.
SENSIT Technologies has released the SENSIT Gold G2-GLT, a gas leak detection trainer designed to provide hands-on training for employees who use the SENSIT GOLD G2 while facing gas emergencies and hazardous leak detection. Now employees can be trained in safe, gas-free conditions for gas detection and emergency response.
