A comprehensive Joint Integrity program which addresses all requirements for controlled bolting, flange management, and integrity assurance will provide the following benefits.
Evidence. Contracted by major IOC’s with these results:
- 50,000+ joints, leak rate <0.4%, on world scale, multi-site, LNG construction project, following Hydratight integrity assurance program.
- Final leak rate <1.5%, on construction of topsides for Caspian project, following Hydratight integrity assurance program.
- 30,000+ joints, leak rate <0.1% when tested, on major USA refinery construction, following Hydratight integrity assurance program and controlled bolting of critical joints.
- 75% reduction in all leaks following a structured assurance program over a 5 year period across a range of ageing offshore UK assets.
