How do we use a SMART pig?

The SMART pig is propelled by flowing oil or gas along the length of the pipe and helps us see the inside, middle and outside of the pipe while it’s operating. While travelling, sensors detect changes in the pipeline steel caused by dents, cracks or metal loss. The information is used to help us determine what features within the pipe we should investigate further.
