Integrity Management


Pipeline Integrity Management Program

Explore has experienced Pipeline Integrity Specialists to work with your Operations staff for all for the required field and office support in executing your company’s Pipeline Integrity Management (IMP) Program on an on-going basis, or task specific project.

We can help you to ensure IMP activities are being completed and documented in accordance with the applicable regulatory requirements of the jurisdiction your pipelines are located in.

Pipeline Integrity Manual

Nothing is more important than developing a clear, sound, and comprehensive Pipeline Integrity Manual (PIM) that shows just how you plan to support and maintain your pipeline system in accordance with all provincial regulations and the most current version of CSA Z662. Explore can work with you to develop a new PIM, or revise and update an existing one.

Leak Detection Program

Leak Detection Program

Industry focus has now shifted to prevention, aiming to achieve the goal of zero releases. Companies must have a mitigation strategy should a release occur, and the appropriate leak detection program, composed of effective leak detection systems, is a part of successful mitigation. 

It is essential that companies minimize impact of releases on the public, environment and infrastructure. At Explore we can help you identify gaps in your current program or support you in developing and implementing a leak detection program from the ground up.

Pipeline Root Cause Analysis

Most companies are now implementing root cause analysis into their failure investigation procedure. A root cause analysis is a technique that can help companies answer the question of why the problem occurred in the first place. It seeks to identify the origin of a problem using a specific set of steps, with associated tools, to find the primary cause of the problem. 

Explore can support you by conducting a root cause analysis on low-to-medium incidents or for major incidents. Companies should understand that when using inadequate investigation techniques, you may think you are improving performance when, in reality, you are waiting to get blindsided by a major accident that you don’t see coming. Improve your pipeline safety, conduct a root cause analysis on your next pipeline incident.
