API 1163 – Are you in Compliance?

API 1163 In-Line Inspection Systems Qualification is now mandatory for PHMSA hazardous liquid pipelines. That shouldn’t be a bad thing as following API 1163 provides a great way of structuring your ILI program. 

From identifying the integrity threats of your pipeline, choosing an appropriate ILI tool, managing the inspection project, through the validation of the performance of the ILI tool, API 1163 provides a valuable resource for ensuring that your integrity management program is effective and doesn’t have gaps.
