ESR Technology's leading oil and gas inspection forum, HOIS, makes guidance public regarding the inspection of weld corrosion.
Warrington, UK. ESR Technology today announced that HOIS, its joint industry project concerning improved non-destructive testing in the oil and gas industry, has published a Recommended Practice Guide for the Inspection of Weld Corrosion.
This recommended practice document is the result of a research project funded by HOIS to provide the oil and gas industry with guidance on the inspection of weld corrosion where there are currently no international standards or recommended best practices.
The publication of this document provides a recommended practice to oil and gas producing companies and inspection companies on the preferred inspection methods and techniques for a variety of conditions, said Dr Steve Burch, ESR Technologys Head of Inspection Technology and HOIS Manager. Increasing our understanding of asset condition leads to improved safety, increased efficiencies and reduced costs.
The document is available to the entire industry and can be obtained by registering and downloading a free copy from the HOIS section of the ESR Technology website:
