Before natural gas or oil is transported through new pipelines, the entire length of the pipeline assembly is pressure tested using either fresh water or seawater, and is the final construction ‘quality assurance’ test before the pipeline is put into operation. The pressure test is held for a specific amount of time, from between 1 day and 100 days, to ensure structural integrity before the pipeline is placed into operation.
