Finite Element Modeling Capabilities

Many engineering structures and components involve complex geometry, material behavior and loading. Finding the stress, deformation, temperature, and pressure or assessing mechanical behaviour of such structures is not typically possible through analytical methods, so we turn to numerical ones. In the numerical approach, the mathematical equations that describe the physics of the problem are approximated [...]

Guided Wave Testing (GWT) for large surfaces areas on pipelines

Guided wave ultrasonic testing is an advanced ultrasonic testing technique used for its efficiency to test for deterioration on large volumes of material from a single test point. The term used in this method is Long Range Ultrasonic Testing (LRUT). Metal loss in pipeline or piping is a major issue for the oil and gas [...]

Ultrasonics vs Phased Array

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is chosen to interrogate a weld volume through its thickness to detect gas pores (porosity), lack of fusion or racking, and metal loss through erosion or corrosion.  Each of these types of “defects” could have a detrimental effect on a product because additional stresses are caused by such impurities. UT operates on [...]

Process Safety Management of Ammonia Refrigeration Systems

OSHA Standards for Ammonia Refrigeration Systems Cold storage and food processing facilities often struggle with finding the best solution to meet the requirements of the OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) Standard 29 CFR 1910.119, IIAR Bulletin 110, and the ANSI/IIAR Standard 6. IIAR 6 establishes the minimum requirements for inspection, testing, and maintenance (ITM) applicable [...]

  • ASME Section IX

Why following ASME Section IX is not (always) enough

The ASME code is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard that regulates the design, development and construction of boilers and pressure vessels. ASME Section IX specifies the requirements for the qualification of welders and the welding procedure specifications. There is a common misunderstanding that if you follow ASME Code Section IX requirements to [...]

Facility integrity assessments can fuel gains in the oil and gas sector

Oil and gas companies face complex, often hazardous work environments that they must manage with incredible care. Any undesirable event in this industry often leads to a high consequence scenario, so the need to mitigate relevant risk is critical when trying to keep profits in a healthy place and efficiency at maximum performance. Facility integrity [...]

  • Utility mapping

Utility Mapping for Risk Reduction in Oil and Gas

The importance of utility mapping cannot be overstated in the Oil and Gas industry.  Time critical operations can be delayed during times of emergency if subsurface asset locations are unknown.  Maintenance schedules of critical assets can require adjustments due to the configuration of subsurface infrastructure. Special consideration and concern include the location and identification of [...]

Innovation: the key to effective boiler inspection

Boiler inspection is necessary because boilers suffer from many forms of degradation while in service. Water wall tubes can incur a range of issues, from hydrogen damage, pitting, ash and soot-blower erosion, graphitisation, under-deposit corrosion, thermal fatigue cracking and creep damage. These types of degradation may impact on the normal running of a company’s facilities, and, [...]

Pipeline Repair: Considerations for Determining the Most Appropriate Method

Hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines have been used for decades to transport crude oil, refined petroleum products, and natural gas from their respective gathering systems to facilities where they are refined, processed, or stored.  As with any aging infrastructure after a certain period of time, preventative and ongoing maintenance is required to ensure the [...]
