Damage Prevention

Damage Prevention is a process that involves clear established communication. Preventing damages to underground and overhead utilities is a shared responsibility by all parties including the contractor, 3rd party inspection service, and the utility owner. Damage to overhead and underground utilities can affect important services delivered to surrounding communities by those facilities. Any utility damage can result in a loss of service, tarnished reputation, damaged public trust, and even death.

Let us share with you our field learnings. This is a detailed training of lessons learned and implemented today regarding underground utilities and overhead power, a must have for Green Hands, Foremen, and inspection staff. We breakdown multiple scenarios seen in todays congested work areas This class will discuss coming technology, knowledge needed in the field, and best practices to identify underground utilities. Class involves an industry specific PowerPoint presentation that is designed to engage workers in discussions to apply the best learnings and field practices possible. Help them identify the difficult. Prepare them to assess, identify, and respond.

We share the importance of local 811 programs and the need for a Common Ground Alliance. Training curriculum will involve best practices developed with industry leading contractors and gas and oil companies that have been proved to work by us in the field. We break down the pros and cons to today’s Damage Prevention and Ground Disturbance programs while sharing industry insides to safer digging practices. Class includes a comprehension quiz that covers both overhead power and underground utility hazards. A certificate of completion will be available to employees who complete this training.

This training is geared toward pipeline infrastructure and was developed from the right-of-way.

K9 Pipeline Leak Detection

Patriot Pipeline Safety, Corp. has been involved with the pipeline industry for over 17 years. It was a very natural fit for us to begin using K9’s for pipeline leak detection in today’s industry.

Why K9s: Leak detection dogs have been used in the pipeline industry for over 30 years getting their start in Canada. Some common challenges we face in the industry nationwide are stress corrosion cracking, old cathodic or custody flanges, aging technology and materials used in valves, weld defects, incomplete records, external corrosion, internal corrosion, non-piggable systems, induced voltage risks, physical attacks and geological hazards that are growing in frequency. Utilizing K9s for leak detection helps mitigate the risks associated with these factors and helps energy companies get ahead of potential challenges.

Pipeline Construction 101

A first of a kind training. Built from the right-of-way to address today’s challenges experienced on Right-of-Ways. This training is the first attempt ever to capture the specific working practices and associated hazards of mainline construction. Designed for both the new and experienced employee. This class was built with industry professional experience from industry leaders across the country and is said to be today’s missing link in training for employees working on pipeline right-of-ways under construction. A certificate of completion along with a hardhat sticker will be given to those who pass as proof of completion.

Pipeline Security and Surveillance

The pipeline infrastructures we build and maintain have gained attention over the past decade. So how do you address it and what do you look for? Let us provide some industry practices that are gaining more and more attention. We will help you identify your weaknesses in a system currently in operation. We can also help you identify risk associated with project resistance and provide safe approach methods to maintain the social status and well-earned trustworthy relationships gained with the effected public. This is a training growing in demand that helps address protesters, suspicious behavior, infrastructure vulnerabilities overlooked by aircraft surveillance, and how to work with it and address it safely.

Today’s risks are very great involving pipeline infrastructure. Physical attacks range from SCADA breaches to IED’s in the field. We assist and provide guidance with collaborative on the ground inspection service for your pipeline. We will help you address hazards and risks associated with weather impacts, disgruntled employees, site security, resistance organizations, and terrorist activities. We will further help you understand these risks, what to look for, and how to prevent them. This service is by contract and is best conducted as a tour of the entire system to build strong learnings and attention to vulnerable areas unknown. We have experienced violent resistance groups, disgruntled land owners, and threats to pipeline infrastructure first hand. Let us help you develop a better understanding of today’s threats both manmade and natural.

This training will also touch on a new practice of surveillance related to unmanned aircraft (Drones) and their benefits for pipeline surveillance. The use of drones (UAS) has increased in the petroleum and natural gas industry in 2020. Patriot offers Part 107 certified drone pilots as an additional tool during our ground patrols and special requests inspections. This has been instrumental in severe weather assessments and gaining access to tracks with swamp, vegetation, and sensitive agriculture. It has also tremendously reduced operations cost for our clients. The difference with Patriot is their is an experienced Pipeliner flying the drone so the areas captured are assessed by a trained eye onsite. The use of this technology is endless when discussing pipeline security, right-of-way surveillance, tank inspection, and well pad/ rig integrity inspections.

Training is innovative and hands on. Material developed for training comes from pipeline construction and operation experience and is best implemented as a joint inspection of the pipeline system.
