PIG tracking is a highly specialized service provided for the oil and gas industry to aid in the required periodic inspection of pipeline infrastructure.

Galloway’s certified pipeline locators provide pre-inspection pipeline surveying and mapping services. There are many types of PIGs used to maintain the health and integrity of transmission pipelines, and a PIG tracker monitors the location of the tool in the pipe at all times during an inspection run.

Gas transmission lines are routed in as straight a line as possible, often in remote areas that are difficult to reach, running over mountains, through corn fields, across swamps and under busy highways.

PIG tracking is demanding, rewarding and adventurous work that requires common sense, courage, and a “failure is not an option” attitude.
