In-line inspection and integrity services

The safety, integrity, and operating efficiency of your assets are at the core of what we do. Baker Hughes Process & Pipeline Services (PPS) unique portfolio of services helps you confidently manage the lifecycle of your pipeline—delivering timely and stress-free startup, supporting day-to-day reliability, and enabling controlled decommissioning.

The right technology for every technology challenge

We provide a variety of inspection services to meet your requirements. We offer pipeline inspection services for examining emerging issues such as corrosion, cracks, pipeline movement, and mechanical damage. 

Pipeline debris can reduce throughput, cause corrosion, raise running costs, and prevent proper inspection. Our technologies remove various deposits, including wax, liquids, black powder, rust, and millscale. We'll get your pipeline back on track and enhance your system's efficiency without taking it offline.

Confidently manage the safety and lifecycle of your assets with accurate and reliable data

Pipeline safety and asset integrity, along with continued throughput, main the greatest priorities for operators. And, while pipeline operation and management are highly complex with many processes and activities which are essential to ensure safe pipeline operations, there can be no doubt that dependable pipeline inspection data makes things easier.

At Baker Hughes, we have spent over 50 years inspecting more than 2 million kilometres of pipeline doing exactly that, making things easier. How? Through the introduction of the most advanced technologies, by employing world-class talent and expertise and by providing some of the most accurate data in the industry you can be confident that the decisions you make will be efficient and effective, first time, every time.
