FLOW LINE INSPECTION

DOES ANY BODY KNOW THE MOST COST SAVING AND TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE METHOD TO INSPECT THE INTEGRITY OF FLOW LINES AND PREDICT THE CONDITION OF THE LINES WITHOUT THE NEED TO SHUT IN THE WELL IN ORDER TO PREVENT FAILURES

Re: FLOW LINE INSPECTION Ultrasonic thickness testing is the usual method of inspection. This testing can be performed with the line fully assembled, and in service.

Re: FLOW LINE INSPECTION UT is the quickest and easiest method..small bore insulated piping can also be inspected with shadow radiography.

Re: FLOW LINE INSPECTION Guided ultrasonics make for a good screening tool to cover large areas with minimal time.
Any indications can be proven up with straight beam, along with visual inspection and physical measurement for external indications.
Routine R-String or B31 calc's beyond that.

Additional consideration for inspection methods should be given for anticipated problems and or what the wells produce.
High H2S or CO2 would require different more detailed and extensive inspection.

Re: FLOW LINE INSPECTION Rosen Inspection Technologies has developed an MFL based robotic
scanner for flow lines. The line can be in service and will be inspected over the complete circumference.
Several diameters are available. For further information you can contact me at CMoeller@RosenInspection.net or visit our website www.RosenInspection.net.

Re: FLOW LINE INSPECTION The topic can be very wide and much will depend upon cost and how you analyze cost in terms of consequences of damage, total cost of inspection and cost of replacement.

Where the flowlines are in relation to hazards to the public will also dictate how much inspection, how definitive and how often you inspect.

The first approach may be an RBI study highlighting areas of greatest risk and then applying some of the techniques mentioned by others.

Manual UT - slow, low cost potentially low coverage.
Guided Wave - Full coverage, medium accuracy , medium cost
MFL - Full Coverage, fast, medium accuracy, medium to high cost.

You need to determine a strategy and cost implications first.
