Pipeline Composite Repair Standard Initiative


For some time now, ADV has recognized the pressing need for a comprehensive Pipeline Composite Repair Standard. While ASME PCC-2 has laid a solid foundation addressing corrosion reinforcement, our industry's relentless innovation in North America over the last 15 years has propelled composite technologies beyond the reinforcement of corrosion.

In 2024, CTAG is embarking on a new journey to create a document that will eventually set the standard for our industry's future. This initiative is not just about setting guidelines; it's about revolutionizing the way we approach pipeline repair.


You're invited to be part of this pivotal moment in our industry's evolution. Here's how you can get involved:
Think About It
CTAG wants your thoughts; think about what this new standard could include. Think of others you believe should be a part of what CTAG is doing and let them know about this initiative.
 Join us for our CTAG meeting on April 18th, where we'll delve into the Pipeline Composite Repair Standard initiative. ADV Connect members are invited to stay for the afternoon Operator Roundtable to further enrich the discussion.

Join ADV Connect
If you're not already a member of ADV Connect, now's the time to join. Gain access to a wealth of resources and networking opportunities to stay at the forefront of industry developments. Connect with Natalie Tessel, ADV Connect’s Executive Manager, for more information on what membership includes.
We're incredibly excited about this initiative. ADV Integrity’s president, Dr. Chris Alexander, has passionately led the discussion around composite repairs for 30 years. By establishing clear standards based on decades of testing, research, and installations, we're simplifying the process for high-pressure pipeline operators and regulators to leverage composite repair technologies effectively.

Together, let's pave the way for a safer, more efficient future in pipeline repair.
