The facility will support North America’s oil and gas infrastructure with advanced pipeline inspection technology and services, and will become a global centre of excellence for pipeline crack analysis, serving Canadian, U.S. and European pipeline operators.

Attending the official ribbon-cutting, Art Meyer, Past Chair of global industry association, Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) and a Senior Vice President with Enbridge said: “The expansion of our pipeline networks across North America drives the need for efficient advanced technologies and services to support the safe operation of vital energy infrastructure. PII Pipeline Solutions’ new facility reflects GE’s commitment to Canada and to continued reliable innovation in the pipeline industry.”

Welcoming customers and VIPs from across Canada to the opening event, Michael Bellamy, General Manager, PII Pipeline Solutions said: “The Canadian pipeline industry is critical to the reliable supply of oil and gas to all of North America. Our investment in a state-of-the-art services facility will help our expanding Canadian customer base enhance the safety and security of their pipeline infrastructure systems. This new facility will become our global centre for pipeline crack analysis, serving not only our Canadian clients, but also U.S. and European pipeline operators.’’

The new facility consolidates several existing PII Pipeline Solutions operations in Calgary into one center of excellence and will host part of GE’s fleet of advanced magnetic, geometry and ultrasonic pipeline inspection tools for deployment throughout Canada to help operators monitor the condition of their oil and gas gathering and transmission systems.

The 50,000 sq.ft services facility will house 100 employees and is certified to ISO9001: 2008 and EN13908 (ATEX) requirements.

Recent PII Pipeline Solutions projects in Canada include inspecting a key segment of TransCanada’s planned Keystone pipeline project.
