Oilfield Tubular Testing


Our problem defined:

At various sites within Venezuela, there are tubulars that need to be inspected at the site (i.e., wellsite or pipe yard). Normally, the oilfield service companies - such as Tuboscope - use x-ray technology to check for excess stress, fatigue, cracks, excessive pipe wall loss, etc.) Note: you can view a set of pipe to be inspected for Mobil Oil at: http://www.popc.com/mobil

As there is an urgent need to inspect tubulars in the field, on a more frequent basis than can be applied vis-a-vis heavy, stationary x-ray type equipment, I am interested in determining whether your laptop tool could be used to perform much of this inspection.

My general questions:

* Can your laptop machine be used to inspect tubulars in the field?
* Is the technology relatively proven (i.e., can the results be believed)?
* What are your recommendations?


If possible, I would like to obtain whatever information possible - by e-mail attachment, since I am in Caracas at this moment ... and would like to present your "output" characteristics to numerous oil company engineers here (electronically, meaning ... if there are *.doc files, binary programs that generate example output files about the portable laptop ultra-sonic testing device).


Thank you in advance for your assistance.
