Abstract: A six-year development programme, undertaken by RST Projects Ltd, has resulted in a new technology for the internal inspection of hydrocarbon pipelines. The 'smart acquisition and analysis module' (SAAM), contained entirely within a conventional cleaning pig, monitors the dynamic response of the carrier as it passes down the line. Measurement of this response, combined with temperature and pressure readings, can be analysed to assess the internal condition of the line.
