Pipeline Maintenance

In order to ensure continuous supply of crude oil/products to upcountry locations, it is inevitable to maintain the integrity of pipelines at optimum parameters. As per international practice/recommendations oil pipelines should be inspected at an interval of 5 years. All the pipelines are inspected after every 5 years through Intelligent Pigging, using the latest technology available and advanced procedures. The latest data obtained is then compared with previous data which helps in monitoring the corrosion growth and make necessary maintenance.
To protect the pipeline from external corrosion, Cathodic Protection system has been installed along the cross-country pipeline system. In remote areas, where electric supply is not available, Solar Electric Power is used in some CP Stations, along with backup diesel generators. A total of 104 CP stations have been spread out along the PARCO & PAPCO cross-country Pipeline System.
