ENGINEERING

We provide mechanical, civil, structural, pipeline, process piping, instrumentation, electrical, construction engineering, and drafting. CCI's engineering services are tailored to fit client’s specific needs.

FITNESS FOR SERVICE

Pipeline Fitness for Service is a comprehensive analysis of a pipeline’s current and future integrity based on accepted industry methods. The program provides our clients a clear plan for inspection, repair, and mitigation actions, which, when scheduled and completed, ensure safety, reliability and regulatory compliance. Deliverables are:

  • Data Review & Anomaly Identification

  • Immediate Integrity Assessment

  • Future Integrity Assessment

  • Remediation Plan

HYDRAULIC SIMULATION

Our engineers use hydraulic simulation to calculate pressure drop and flow distribution through gas and liquid piping systems. The analysis includes expected temperatures, pressures, and volumes flowing through the pipeline, as well as environmental conditions and restrictions along its path. This allows capacity determination of existing and proposed piping systems and sizing of:

  • Pipe

  • Pumps

  • Control Valves

PIPELINE

There is a wide array of engineering that goes into supporting pipeline operations throughout an asset’s lifespan. We are experienced with design, modification, testing, repairs, and regulatory support for a wide variety of pipeline assets. Engineering support for pipelines includes:

  • Hydraulic Simulation

  • Design, Permitting and Installation Technical Support

  • Flow Reversal Design and Evaluation

  • Pig Trap Modifications Upgrades

  • Complex Pipeline Abandonments (Land and Marine)

  • Pipeline Relocations and Re-routes (Land and Marine)

  • In-Line Inspection and Data Evaluation (Smart Pigging)

  • Hydrotest Design

  • Pipeline Lowering Calculations and Procedures

  • Routine and Complex Pipeline Repairs (Land and Marine)

  • Crack Assessments and Fitness for Service Evaluations

  • Pipeline Collapse Pressure Calculations

  • Detailed Work Procedures with supporting calculations

  • Soil Erosion Remediation

  • Inspection and Repairs by Divers and ROV’s
