Inspection, Maintenance and Repair (IMR)

Pioneer provides the latest techniques of IMR to ensure our client’s assets are running successfully and economically.

The oil, gas and energy industries are asset-intensive. Given the current economic climate, volatile energy prices, and unstable customer demand, executives in these industries must make rapid and difficult business and operational decisions. To remain economical, asset-owners are looking for new ways to get the most out of their assets, assure their assets stay online, and plan for unexpected failures.

Pioneer understands these demands. As a multi-disciplinary contractor, we work with our customers to prolong the life of their assets. We can come in at any stage of the asset integrity scheme, whether it is Planning/FEED, operations, or decommissioning.

We have specially selected locations close to our customers to ensure speedy response times.
