Tech/Engineering / oil industry - pipeline inspection
English term or phrase: Pigging Technology
Pigging Technology is used for inspecting oil pipelines. Intelligent pigs are used for the purpose. Could anybody indicate what PIG stands for ? Would it be "Petroleum Gauge Instrument" ? Thanks for your help.
