guided wave ultrasonic testing for pipeline inspection in oil and gas industry

Why choose guided wave ultrasonic testing? LRUT (Long range ultrasonic testing) or sometimes called as GWT (guided wave testing) is becoming commonplace today for pipeline inspection. This technology is used as excellent NDT for the screening tool. Guided wave ultrasonic inspection offer many advantages such as High productivity (kms per day), access required only at discrete locations, carried out with pipe on-line ( not require shutdown) and 100% coverage except for flanges, tees and other large features. This LRUT/GWT technology come as a solution for pipeline inspection problem like restricted access, many lines not suitable for in-line inspection (ILI /[…]

how to develop dissimilar metal or galvanic corrosion prevention

what is dissimilar metal or galvanic corrosion prevention? Corrosion is a process of damage to a material due to environmental influences. This is a natural process in metals. Corrosion in metals and equipment in the oil and gas industry results in financial losses, pollutes the environment and can endanger human safety. Engineers and scientists do a lot of research on corrosion to prevent and control the corrosion rates. On this occasion, we will discuss Galvanic Corrosion or known as dissimilar metal corrosion. This corrosion occurs when 2 different metal or alloy metals in the same environment and interconnected. This corrosion[…]

Fluid mechanic application in oil and gas industry

What is fluid mechanic? In the oil and gas industry, we are dealing with fluid mechanic problems every day. What is fluid? What is the nature and character of the fluid? To solve this problem we need to understand fluid mechanic basic. Mechanics is physics that deals with stationary objects and moves in the influence of forces. 1) Branches of mechanics that deal with stationary objects are called statics, and 2) The branch of mechanics that deals with moving objects are called dynamics Fluid mechanics is the science that deals with the nature of the fluid in a state of[…]

application of geographical information system GIS

Development of geographical information system GIS At present, the development of the geographical information system GIS is dominated by the private company. They recruit skilled experts from the campus and search opportunities (markets) for their products both in private institutions and government. The number of GIS developer companies is increased from a relatively small software house level to large companies like ESRI. ESRI  (environmental systems research institute) founded by Jack Dangermond & Laura Dangennond in 1969. According to ESRI industry analysts, it became the leading provider in the GIS system and the most dominant company. In 1981 ESRI released ARC[…]
