Asset Integrity

01 03

Safe, reliable, compliant

Two decades ago, few people were talking about the importance or implications of asset integrity. What were we up to? Providing owners with the resources and information needed to keep their operations—and their product—moving safely.

With public scrutiny more intense than ever, our team continues to lead the way. We help our clients anticipate, prevent, manage, and mitigate potentially dangerous and costly conditions associated with their pipelines and facilities. How? By engaging in design and maintenance programs that help you mitigate threats before a project even breaks ground.

Focusing on asset integrity and risk management services for the energy industry, our team includes in-line inspection (ILI) specialists, advanced materials engineers, and National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) accredited corrosion and cathodic protection professionals.

In Stantec, you’ll find a trusted resource with thousands of miles of pipeline experience in engineering and pipeline integrity management system (PIMS) design, risk management, environmental consequence, data management, regulatory approvals, and overall quality processes.

Let us know how we can apply our integrity management process and engineering services to address your unique needs and maintain the safe, reliable, and regulations-compliant performance of your assets.

There's a reason it's called integrity

Our pipeline team lead weighs in on why, at Stantec, we are invested in pipeline safety, integrity and efficiency.

Ziad Saad,

Vice President, Pipelines

“There are bridges that are hundreds of years old and serve their function reliably, traffic crosses them safely every day. However if you had left those bridges unattended to over hundreds of years, likely they wouldn’t be here today. Pipelines are very similar to that. Pipelines, as long as there is an integrity management program that is sophisticated and well developed they can last for a very long time.”

Dennis Zadery,

Director, Oil & Gas - Integrity

“Integrity is a type of imagined system or concept that owners and operators and organizations incorporate into their organizational structure to manage assets and manage the lifecycle of assets. Including the safety of assets, the liability of assets the overall efficiency and lifetime performance of assets.”

“One of the key elements when we build as we build new infrastructure and new big projects, we have learned over the years that you can build a lot of integrity upfront.”

“It is very valuable in a company like Stantec that we have both the integrity engineers and also the design engineers that design new pipelines but we also have environmental services, geotechnical services and survey and geomatics services. Those can be very complimentary in the application of pipeline design in general and pipeline integrity as well.”

“We can combine these complimentary expertise and apply that to solving different engineering problems to come up with more creative and better solutions.”

“We’re invested because at the end of the day when we go home and we want to live our lives, everything that is going on around us by these big companies that run assets, we are near and dear to those locations. So we would be impacted and affected.”

“We are the community.”

“Our job doesn’t end with designing the pipeline and it going through the ground. Our job does extend through the 50, 60, 70 years lifespan of that pipeline project.”

Pipeline landslide threat management

Different than time-dependent threats, geohazards are external and linked to weather and other natural forces. Our Active Strain Analytics (ASA) tool helps keep pipelines safe and operating by evaluating for strain caused by unstable ground. Read More

Safety loss management systems

Due to recent requirements by federal and local regulators in North America, pipeline owners and operators are incorporating elements of their existing integrity management programs (IMP) into a more holistic corporate approach—safety loss management systems (SLMS). We’ve led several major pipeline companies in developing, implementing, and auditing SLMS at a corporate and/or regional level. If you need a thorough review and gap assessment, we have the experience and subject matter experts to create the comprehensive summary you need.

Digital innovation for integrity

Sound data management is at the core of our activities. Pipeline projects and studies require a large amount of data—from project information, field work reports, and engineering efforts to inputs from regulators and industry associations. If you need help managing and compiling this information to create consistent and clear datasets, we can provide scalable technology solutions. Our web-based applications—which we developed for a variety of energy clients—can support your project delivery or ongoing operation needs.
