Many natural gas utilities across the globe are faced with the challenge of repairing or rehabilitating aging pipeline infrastructure that is often operating past the expected life-span.
Leaks within these aging pipeline infrastructures are responsible for wasting large volumes of a valuable commodity. They also pose a huge risk to the health and safety of the general public because of possible leaks and explosions.
