Pipeline hydrotesting, or hydrostatic testing, is a standard industry process for pipelines transporting fluids under pressure. Pipeline joints and flanges require inspection, maintenance, and repair to ensure their defect-free performance under such high pressures. Hydrostatic testing is a non-destructive test performed during the commissioning of a new line, or periodic testing, and involves charging a pipeline followed by a detailed diagnostic of any pressure losses.
The project for Williams involved hydrotesting for approximately 3,300 feet of existing 26-inch pipeline. The video detailing the pipeline hydrostatic testing company’s work is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mukEgeC_A5I.
