Nexus Integrity Management, LLC combustible gas leak detection surveys are completed by using state-of-the-art flame ionization and hydrocarbon leak detection equipment. Nexus’ professional technicians have certification and training for leak detection surveys in both urban and rural areas. Nexus has the ability to conduct leak detection surveys on all classifications of buried pipelines. These pipelines transport hydrocarbons such as natural gas, propane, ethane, propylene, acetylene, LPG, or liquids that gasify as soon as in the atmosphere, such as ammonia and hydrogen. Nexus follows strict procedures when conducting leak detection surveys. These procedures involve the technicians electronically locating every pipeline, wherever necessary, to ensure the leak detection survey is accurately conducted over-the-top of the pipeline; consequently detecting all potential leaks.
Scheduled leak detection surveys of gas transmission lines are the best method of protecting the lives of people who live and work near them. For that reason, the DOT included several regulations that call for intermittent surveys depending on area population and the content of the transmission line.
