How It Works
We have a 24/7 emergency response line. The moment the contract is signed we are on the road. Upon arrival, our lead technician will inject our industry tested and approved odorant and the line will be pressurized. Our canine teams will inspect along the right of way after 24 hours. KPI dogs have experience detecting in rain, snow, dense clay, thick foliage. A minimum of two dogs are used per contract and can cover 8-12 miles per day.
Our specialized odorant is designed to migrate vertically to the surface. KPI dogs indicate the location of a leak with a scratch indication. They are trained to indicated at the strongest concentration therefore their pinpointing abilities will typically be within a meter. The handler will mark the leak location and digging/repair will begin.
The canine team will continue the inspection - the first leak isn't always the only leak.
We Offer Maintenance Packages
As PHMSA and NEB regulations increase, oil and gas companies need new ways to show they are meeting those regulations. Click below to find out more.
Hydrostatic and Air Testing
Our industry approved odorant system works very well in conjunction with hydrostatic testing. Pressure tests using air/nitrogen can also be incorporated with our tracer odorant as well. Our dogs detect at PPB and can outperform modern technology that only detects at PPM. Please see our maintenance packages for regularly scheduled leak survey options.
In Service Lines
