Every set of assets are different, face different environmental conditions and carry different materials. As a result, oil and gas assets present unique challenges.
Why are Oil and Gas Inspections important?
NDT is a vital tool for the oil and gas inspections, as it is critical for both the integrity of assets and equipment, and the safety of materials, staff and the environment. NDT can identify weaknesses in assets before they become a problem, saving you the potential loss of millions of dollars and negative news coverage.
Many within the oil and gas industry have begun to use NDT as part of their asset management program. Infrastructure including upstream wells, midstream pipelines and downstream refineries can employ non-destructive testing for valuable applications.
Pipelines pose some of the most difficult challenges for any inspector. Oil and gas pipelines can be kilometres in length and inspection methods can be slow when covering large distances. That is why we use Ultrasonic Testing (UT) methods. UT is one of the most well-developed, portable, and easy-to-use forms of NDT for oil and gas applications.
Another problem that NDT helps to relieve is finding areas of corrosion and erosion without having to stop production or conduct invasive testing on the asset. Corrosion and erosion often occur in oil and gas assets over time due to the highly abrasive nature of the product. This can lead to the thinning of walls of pipes, pressure vaessels and dome ends. Non-Destructive inspections provide a non-invasive method to routinely inspect wall thickness of your metal infrastructure, without taking it out of service.
