Brook & Knights International renders pipeline services in the categories stated below
B&K pipeline pre-commissioning prepares your pipeline correctly before going into service, giving you years of trouble-free operation. Cleaning and drying your new pipeline reduces erosion, improves efficiency, maximizes throughput, and prevents hydrates from forming.
Starting with the filling and gauging, we prevent debris from entering the line using the correct filtration. If you intend to leave water in the pipeline for several months, we have the proprietary chemicals to control corrosion and protect your asset. We can validate the line integrity by hydro-testing to a variety of pipeline codes, allowing you to meet your regulatory obligations.
We can clean the pipeline using mechanical, chemical, or gel technology, depending on the specification, which will further mitigate against long-term corrosion.
For natural gas and petrochemical pipelines, drying is essential to prevent the formation of hydrates and give you the product purity you need. We reduce drying time and get you into production as quickly as possible using air, vacuum, nitrogen, or chemical swabbing. A final purge
Brooks & Knights pipeline commissioning gets quality product into your pipeline safely, quickly, and efficiently. Start production immediately and reduce economic risk.
Onshore, in high-pressure gas lines and high-purity petrochemical pipelines, keep your system safe and minimize product mixing with our temporary heating systems that prevent Joule-Thompson cooling. You’ll start production faster by maintaining product purity.
Offshore, rely on our environmentally friendly alternative to methanol or glycol hydrate inhibitors so you can startup safer while still complying with local legislation.
Our large inventory of diesel-driven pump packages is used to commission oil and refined product pipelines, allowing you to start flowing product and generating cash flow.
B&K pipeline maintenance services enable your pipelines to operate at maximum efficiency by keeping them clean. When you have to go offline, we substantially reduce downtime.
Our mechanical, chemical, and gel cleaning methods allow us to match your pipeline conditions and ensure debris removal at reduced cost. We clean crude oil, refined products, water, natural gas, and specialized petrochemical pipelines, including difficult-to-treat ethylene systems.
In an emergency, when your pump breaks down, we keep your pipeline flowing with a temporary pump during repairs. We’ll be there when you need us with our large inventory of pumps.
When your system needs repairs, call on our experts for pipeline decommissioning, including natural gas evacuation and nitrogen purging, to safely prepare for hot work.
Finally, before you put the line back into service, we’ll hydrotest it to ensure pipeline integrity. Pipeline drying is the next step so the product meets specifications.
CPIG MFL PIPELINE INSPECTION
BROOKS & KNIGHTS CPIG™ MFL and caliper pipeline inspection service helps you stretch your integrity management program dollars. The combination of MFL, caliper, and inertial data technology in one tool gathers three data sets in one run, reducing your overall inspection cost.
Our pipeline inspection service reduces the number of required verification digs with accurate data while ensuring you’re digging in the right location. The CPIG tool’s MFL sensors, combined with caliper technology, offer high-resolution metal loss and deformation data. We continually meet or exceed pipeline operator requirements for detection and sizing of metal loss and deformation.
Inspect challenging pipelines
The CPIG tool negotiates extreme ID reductions such as dents, heavy-wall pipe, reduced port valves, and tight bend radius. Our tools have also been engineered to perform dual-diameter inspections.
We have the shortest inspection tools available. Costly and time-consuming launcher and receiver modifications are minimized or avoided altogether, saving you time and money in the field.

VECTRA MFL PIPELINE INSPECTION
BROOKS AND KNIGHTS INTERNATIONAL VECTRA™ high-resolution magnetic flux leakage (MFL) in-line inspection service reduces integrity management program cost by minimizing verification digs and maintaining full product throughput during inspection.
We offer a better combination of technology, which meets or exceeds pipeline operator requirements, for acquiring accurate metal loss and positional data. This technology includes tri-axial sensors, gas bypass with active speed control, and an onboard inertial measurement unit (IMU); we’re one of the service provider that offers this intelligent pigging solution.
