Emergency Pipeline Repair System
An Emergency Pipeline Repair System (EPRS) is a fundamental part of any Integrity Management System. It is intended to sufficiently prepare for- and mitigate against the consequences of unplanned incidents.
A full EPRS comprises the entire process from moment of incident to re-commissioning to maximum allowable operating pressure and flow whereby the main gain of having an EPRS in place is to reduce overall response time to an incident and thereby reducing valuable loss of revenue. Depending on the situation this reduction could take from many months to even a year, simply through proper preparation of all aspects.
