The Hydrotest PowerTool

Create Complex Hydrotest Plans and Ensure Compliance

Hydrotest PowerTool Overview

Hydrostatic Pressure Testing is an essential tool to validate pipeline integrity if you are involved in pipeline design, construction, and compliance qualification. Very few commercial applications generate a comprehensive project plan and report that is suitable for action in the field.

The Hydrotest PowerTool is the one solution that meets the safety and regulatory demands of today.

  •            Quality Control for all pipeline data
  •            Productivity for maximum ROI
  •            Practicality for efficient Hydrotest planning and reporting
  •            Safety to protect your reputation, assets, and community
  •            Maintain the highest standards for account-ability and TVC record-keeping

The Hydrotest PowerTool is an intuitive semi-automated and GIS integrated design, planning, and verification application for pipeline pressure testing that ensures compliance with CFRs 192 and 195 for both new and existing pipelines.

It automates TVC (traceable, verifiable, complete) record keeping, diagnoses defects caused by accidents, assists in pipeline verification/recertification of MAOP, and generates an actionable project plan.

Quality Control

The planning at the start of a Hydrotest project determines the quality of the solution. It concludes by analyzing the pressure data gathered during the test. Your hydrotest plan must model all elements of the asset accurately. The plan should consider the Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP) of all components along the pipeline.

Solutions by Role

Productivity

Hydrotest PowerTool streamlines the planning, design, and validation process for pipeline pressure tests and generates a comprehensive report broken down by sections generated automatically.

Practicality

Putting cables in conduits involves a broad range of variables.

HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE TESTING QUALIFIES AS NON-DESTRUCTIVE, PROVIDING IT EXECUTES ON A COMPREHENSIVE, DISCIPLINED PLAN THAT PRODUCES USEFUL DATA AND KEEPS PRESSURES WITHIN SAFE LIMITS. HYDROTESTING OFFERS A MORE PRACTICAL AND SUFFICIENT ALTERNATIVE, VALIDATES PIPELINES, AND MINIMIZES RISK.

Safety

Inaccurate calculations cause plastic pipes to break during installation.

Any miscalculation of MAOP for any components within the section under examination can lead to pipe failures, expensive clean-up, fines from regulators, and endless lawsuits by injured parties. With the Hydrotest PowerTool these errors are preventable and lead to increased CapEx and OpEx and will enable engineers to make data driven decisions efficiently and communicate to the field effectively.

Standards

Wrong drilling fluids or pressure loads result in collapse or lost returns.

The regulatory environment is a fundamental determinant of midstream oil and gas quality, productivity, and safety. Your company’s success depends on working productively and producing quality output that meets or exceeds many different standards, including being TVC compliant. Our software brings record-keeping up to TVC standards.

ESRI Map GIS Tool

Through it’s GIS integration the Hydrotest Powertool tool lets you select sections for testing based on multiple criteria including elevation head, class location changes, entity location, and others. It is also capable of automatically designating sections based on the available data.

It gives you options to import location survey data, plan water sourcing and disposal, and to generate accurate elevation profiles through the integrated ESRI Map GIS tool.
