Living in Canada, you have probably heard something about pipelines, whether in the news, regular conversation or many debates. In Canada, 97% of the natural gas and oil we use is delivered safely and efficiently by pipelines. But how are these pipelines put in place?

What is instrumentation?

Electrical and instrumentation are a subfield of electrical engineering that mainly focuses on measurements of process variables (such as temperature, pressure and volume) in industrial facilities and equipment management used for automated controls.

Flint builds and maintains world-class facilities; our end-to-end solutions include project and construction management, constructability and planning (advanced work packaging), the path of construction and 3D scanning, fabrication, construction, and commissioning. We are experts in executing each project safely and on schedule. Not many understand what goes into the construction of a facility, a few things that go into each successful project are:

Reclamation is the restoration or rehabilitation of land to bring it back into a more natural state after being damaged or altered in some way.

Remediation is the action of remedying something, in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage.

Facility maintenance and turnarounds - also known as outages - are both unavoidable and necessary. This requires the facility to stop part or all its operations to maintain, replace or upgrade equipment. This process is a big challenge that owners face because a poorly planned shutdown can cause great losses to a company. However, shutdowns that are executed effectively will have major positive impacts on the facility, increasing productivity and financial outcome.
