understanding Non Destructive Testing (NDT) used in Oil and Gas industry

Non Destructive Testing In oil and gas industry (upstream, middle stream and down stream), we used advance inspection and non destructive testing or NDT. Advance inspection include ILI, Long range Ultrasonic testing, Short range Ultrasonic testing, UAV inspection and Ground Penetrating Radar survey / inspection. NDT used in inspection & maintenance daily job, turn around and project ( construction phase ). Every fixed equipment construction, use NDT as quality control tools. The purpose of NDT activity is to detect defects/discontinuity (above the surface, beneath the surface, and in a material). NDT measure the geometry of the objects and determine the[…]

what is pipeline definition?

understanding a pipeline A pipeline is a structure designed to transport liquid, gaseous, and solid (bulk) products. Pipelines consist of straight sections of pipes tightly interconnected, parts, shut-off and control valves, instrumentation, automation, supports and suspensions, fasteners, gaskets and seals, as well as materials used for thermal and anti-corrosion insulation. Pipeline parts are the connecting parts that are used in the construction of pipelines for various purposes, necessary for bending, bending, bending, changing the diameter of the pipes and in the case when the pipeline is temporarily not used. Parts are connected when installing the pipeline, as a rule, butt[…]

ultrasonic pipeline inspection by pigging

pig cleaning system

what is pig cleaning system? each oil and gas company is required to carry out pipeline inspection activities. Inspection methods that are often used vary according to company requirements. starting from UT conventional, LRUT, MTM, visual inspection to the most sophisticated method, namely ILI or often called pigging. based on my 15 years of experience in the inspection field, this pigging method is the most perfect inspection method with a relatively cheap price compared to the LRUT method. This pigging inspection process is carried out by inserting pig in the pipe without interrupting the pipe operation or stopping the flow[…]

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

Why choose guided wave ultrasonic testing pipeline inspection? LRUT (Long range ultrasonic testing) or sometimes called as GWT (guided wave testing) or GWUT (Guided wave ultrasonic testing) is becoming commonplace today for ultrasonic pipeline inspection. This technology is used as excellent NDT for the screening tool. Guided wave ultrasonic pipeline inspection offer many advantages such as High productivity (km 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[…]
