Pipeline Services

Introduction to Pipeline Services
At Mediterranean Gold Drilling Company, we specialise in comprehensive pipeline services aimed at the installation, maintenance, and rehabilitation of various types of pipelines. Our expertise covers coated, wrapped, and coiled pipelines, all designed to ensure the efficient transportation of oil and gas from production sites to refineries and distribution networks

Pipeline Installation
We excel in the precise and efficient installation of pipelines, ensuring they are laid out according to industry standards and project specifications. Whether it’s coated, wrapped, or coiled pipelines, we leverage advanced techniques and equipment to achieve optimal results. Our installation process includes meticulous planning, site preparation, trenching, welding, and inspection to guarantee the integrity and longevity of the pipeline

Pipeline Maintenance
Maintaining pipeline integrity is paramount to prevent leaks, corrosion, and other potential hazards. Our maintenance services encompass regular inspections, corrosion monitoring, cleaning, and repair works as needed. We utilise cutting-edge technologies such as smart pigging and cathodic protection to assess the condition of pipelines and address any issues proactively, minimising downtime and ensuring continuous operation

Pipeline Rehabilitation
Over time, pipelines may degrade due to environmental factors, operational stresses, or aging. Our pipeline rehabilitation services focus on restoring the functionality and structural integrity of existing pipelines through various methods such as re coating, relining, and integrity testing. We employ specialised techniques tailored to the specific requirements of each pipeline, extending its lifespan and optimising performance

Technical Terminology and Petroleum Concepts

  • Coated Pipelines: Pipelines with a protective coating applied to their exterior surface to prevent corrosion and enhance durability
  • Wrapped Pipelines: Pipelines wrapped with materials such as tape or epoxy to provide additional protection against corrosion and mechanical damage
  • Coiled Pipelines: Pipelines manufactured in a continuous coil form, often used in challenging terrain or offshore environments for ease of transportation and installation
  • Pipeline Integrity: The ability of a pipeline to safely and reliably transport fluids without leakage or failure, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards and industry best practices
  • Smart Pigging: A method of pipeline inspection using advanced tools (smart pigs) equipped with sensors to detect defects, corrosion, and other anomalies within the pipeline
  • Cathodic Protection: A technique used to prevent corrosion of metal surfaces, including pipelines, by applying a direct electrical current to counteract the petrochemical reactions that cause corrosion
  • Re coating: The process of applying a new protective coating to a pipeline to restore its corrosion resistance and extend its service life
  • Relining: Installing a new lining inside an existing pipeline to repair damage, improve flow efficiency, and prevent further deterioration
  • Integrity Testing: Various tests conducted to assess the structural integrity and operational reliability of pipelines, including pressure testing, leak detection, and non-destructive evaluation

At Mediterranean Gold Drilling Company, we combine technical expertise, industry knowledge, and a commitment to safety and environmental stewardship to deliver exceptional pipeline services tailored to our clients’ needs. From installation to maintenance and rehabilitation, we are your trusted partner in ensuring the safe and efficient transportation of oil and gas resources
