Main pipelines for oil and gas transportation are among the most expensive and largest facilities operating under the most difficult environmental conditions and requiring a number of activities aimed at their maintenance. In this context, the development of new high-performance pipeline repair technologies is one of the most urgent tasks to ensure their use reliability. The occurrence of new repair methods and improvement of the existing ones, especially the methods making it possible to restore defective sections without stopping the products transportation process, remains strongly sought-for in terms of main pipelines where any forced stop causes significant economic damage.
