Pipeline inspections
Halfwave is a leading provider of pipeline inspection services setting a new standard for measurement of wall thickness in gas pipelines.

The company's pipeline inspection services are focused on tailoring their patented ART Scan tool to specific customer needs in order to provide a safe, cost efficient solution for pipe inspection.

Pipeline inspection services provide:

  • The only direct measurement technology available for gas pipelines
  • Game-changing accuracy and repeatability
  • Ability to inspect thick pipe walls at high speeds, including bends
  • Ability to penetrate wax and rough pipe surfaces
  • Reduced production loss
  • Reduced HSE & financial risk
  • Reduced spending on wasted digs (i.e. digs based on false inspection results)
  • Life-extension of pipelines
  • Cost-efficient inspection of “unpiggable” pipelines

Subsea inspections
Halfwave provides external inspection of subsea assets including rigid and flexible pipelines, flowlines and risers.

Their unique patented technology and in-house developed tool ARTEMIS enables highly accurate inspection of ‘’unpiggable’’ pipelines and risers.

The company's subsea pipeline inspection services are done without the need for subsea field joint coating removal therefore highly reducing integrity risk and cost of inspection operation.
