The Bolivia-Brazil Gas Pipeline runs 2,593 kilometers in Brazil, from the border of Bolivia to the consumer industries in the south of Brazil. This document presents the maintenance control methodology implemented in the first seven years of operation that helped to improve the R.O.W. stabilization and the integrity of the pipeline, focused in the central-west Brazilian spread. It presents the several methods of surveillance used, and the collection and processing of the vast amount of data, as well as the repair and maintenance planning and control system. It also presents the efforts taken to develop an awareness program, which is substantially important to the integrity of the R.O.W. and the Pipeline.
