Pipeline Integrity Dig Process

If your company has acquired an inline inspection that has noted potential problems with your system, it’s very important to call a professional team to perform a pipeline integrity dig. To ensure you understand the process, we’ve outlined the steps of pipeline integrity digs below.

  1. Assessment – Before digging up any section of pipe, a dig site survey and environment assessment must be performed to locate a safe work perimeter as well as other pipelines and buried facilities. Based on this survey, a detailed dig drawing is provided that includes important items such as roads, site access and more. 
  2. Timeline – After the survey is completed and documented, a dig timeline is planned with your company and any permits necessary are obtained. 
  3. Excavation – Once the timeline has been developed, we carefully expose the pipe using hydro excavation/Mechanical Excavation/Hand exposing. We work to avoid accidental damage from digging equipment by adhering to strict safety requirements. 
  4. Inspection – Next, the pipe coating is removed and the pipe is examined using non-destructive methods. Anomalies and problems are then verified. 
  5. Repairs – Based on the inspection, we will perform any repairs that are necessary to ensure the safety of the local area and increase the efficiency of the pipeline. These could include adding/installing a sleeve (weld on) or as simple as recoating and backfill. 
  6. Restoration – After the repairs are completed and meet safety requirements, all areas are fully backfilled and reclaimed to its original status.


If private property is the location for our pipeline integrity dig in Alberta, we contact the landowner in advance of the dig to discuss access, timeline and other matters such as restoration of the dig site.
