New Mobile Non-destructive Pipeline Testing Laboratory Brought into Operation at Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegaz


A new non-destructive pipeline testing laboratory has been introduced and brought into operation at Gazpromneft-Noyabrsknedtegaz. It makes use of cutting-edge equipment like X-ray, ultrasonic flaw detection appliances, and thickness-testing apparatus which allows the remote monitoring of the operational status of major trunk pipelines. It’s also built around an all-terrain KAMAZ vehicle to ensure a comfortable working environment under the Russian Far North and is manned and serviced by four employees. By operating its own unit to monitor pipeline status, the company optimizes outgoings and significantly increases the reliability of information received and the flaw-detection system further enhances their program. This new equipment has been introduced following independent assessment and certification consistent with the state’s energy, industrial, environmental, and construction safety standards which resulted in the implementation of a range of initiatives directed at improving pipeline reliability. It successfully applies intra-tubal robot-assisted defect-detectors in proving the effectiveness of non-detachable pipe-coupling technology. They also monitor territory throughout its own license block through the use of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones, which allows the earlier detection of possible defects within intra-field pipeline system.
