Comprehensive Aerial Pipeline Inspection Services in Michigan

Routine pipeline inspections are a matter of routine across Michigan. Historically, this procedure was carried out on land and later by means of airplanes using video to analyze the pipeline. Helicopter pipeline surveillance has proved far superior to both these methods. The low-flying maneuverability of helicopters makes them the perfect vehicle for pipeline inspections.

Today, FairLifts coordinates access to specially trained personnel armed with state-of-the-art full-color digital video and photographic systems to carry out these pipeline patrols throughout the state of Michigan. The latest optical remote sensing technology and laser detection assist them to pinpoint possible leaks and provide detailed digital survey imagery of their findings.

The Natural Gas Industry in Michigan

Maintaining the integrity of hazardous liquid and gas transmission pipelines is vital to ensure safety for the environment as well as citizens of Michigan. As such, an ongoing program of inspections to predict and prevent possible leakages are imperative along the length of all pipelines crossing the state.

Michigan's extensive natural gas industry network incorporates utilities, transmission pipelines, production, and underground storage. There are over 110,000 miles of pipelines which criss-cross across the state as well as 125,000 miles of fuel pipelines.

The rugged, hilly terrain which occurs throughout this state makes it particularly suitable for helicopter pipeline inspections.

Pipeline inspections and surveys

Pipeline inspections and surveys

Dead vegetation, erosion, bubbling or filmy water can are all tell-tale signs of potential leaks and should be attended to as a matter of urgency. Helicopter surveys make use of qualified personnel who can easily detect these problems and record them on GPS-encoded imagery for immediate analysis by the customer.

Pipeline Cargo Shipments

Pipeline Cargo Shipments

Heavy lift helicopters are able to transport materials for pipeline construction and repair over any terrain, including to offshore rigs, by means of cargo hooks. Likewise, key personnel can be airlifted quickly, safely and easily to remote, rugged areas which would take days to reach by conventional means.

Emergency Response and Leak Location

Emergency Response and Leak Location

Helicopters are an important part of the response team if a leak should occur in a pipeline for any reason. Aerial surveillance can quickly pinpoint the exact location of the problem area using laser technology that can detect minute leakage into the soil. In this way, major catastrophes can be contained.
