Preparation for the Launch of the Pipeline Inspection Tool in Portovaya

The inspection tool (PIG) is inserted into the PIG trap at the start of the pipelines in Portovaya, Russia, and launched into the pipelines, where it travels with the flow of gas all the way to Lubmin, Germany. The internal inspection tool is designed to detect any sign of corrosion, the internal dimensions of the pipeline, its precise position, size and coordinates, and the exact run of the pipelines curves. The intelligent Pipeline Inspection Gauge (PIG) was specifically developed for the Nord Stream Pipelines by Rosen Group, based in Lingen, Germany.
