Press release: The Sniffers combines their pipeline field surveys with expert analysis and a Pipeline Risk & Integrity Management Solution called PRIMS

Balen, Belgium, 21 September 2020 – The Sniffers is pleased to announce it has integrated the pipeline integrity application and the related services from DMC1 GmbH in its pipeline integrity service portfolio. This strong combination of experience, knowledge, and analysis capabilities, will help pipeline owners realize their integrity objectives.

DMC1 GmbH, founded in 2000 and operating from Schkopau in Germany, has developed a business application suite for pipeline owners over the past 20 years. This Pipeline Manager software and the related services, such as pipeline condition analysis, risk assessment, corrosion growth analysis, and third party activity management, are essential for proper pipeline integrity management.

DMC1 and The Sniffers both operate under the Intero Integrity Services group. DMC1 will now become part of The Sniffers’ brand and organization.

The integration of the DMC1 portfolio into the existing pipeline integrity survey range of The Sniffers, gives clients access to all best-in-class services, tools and expertise. Experience and knowledge from the field such as pipeline inspections, leak detection, corrosion surveys, and third party supervision, are now combined with the expert analysis and software capabilities of DMC1. The increasing integrity demands require pipeline owners to focus on accurate pipeline data, high-quality inspections, and relevant analyses. The Sniffers´ expanded range of tools and services support pipeline owners to operate a pipeline in a safe, compliant, and efficient way.
