#PipelineSafety Fact: Pipelines are equipped with sensors and gauges that we monitor 24/7/365.  We use inspection tools called “smart pigs” to look for cracks and corrosion on pipelines. These tools have helped reduce corrosion-related incidents by 76% in the last 20 years! Click to Tweet
 

Smart pigs—the tools we use to inspect #pipelines—can detect cracks as small as 1mm deep and 25mm long. These high-tech tools help our engineers stop issues before they become a problem. Click to Tweet
