Transportation & storage
Pipelines and storage facilities must be built to last, often going beyond their originally intended lifespan. Bureau Veritas offers asset management services for safe operation.
Building and maintaining a pipeline into the future
Pipeline owners face myriad challenges along the thousands of kilometers of new pipelines, as well as in their storage plants. They must manage health and safety, comply with statutory requirements, and ensure new constructions are built to specifications.
Once a new build is up and running, owners must devise a cost-efficient plan to manage maintenance and asset integrity. And they need to identify the best approach to conducting regular inspections to achieve compliance and avoid potential hazards along the pipeline.
