Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) are used in oil and gas production. As a rule, these include drill pipe, casing and tubing that are used both onshore and offshore.
Producers of heavy wall OCTG tube must meet the demands of individual client specifications, as well as API 5L & 5CT, ISO, EN and other standards.Non Destructive Testing Systems for Oil Country Tubular Goods
The oil and gas industry is requiring that tubes used for any critical applications be tested to increased quality level. In addition API requires a test plan and supporting data to verify that the tube-testing plan is effective in the testing task.
MAC does perform NDT system acceptance testing and this type of testing is normally tailored to show that the test system as configured and delivered is up to the task of testing to the 5% and 10% test level required by API. Repeatability data is also provided.
Common types of oil and gas goods include: Casing, Line Pipe, Coupling Stock, Drill Pipe, Sucker Rods, Umbilical Coils (small diameter, long length), and other types of tubes.
Common applications for these goods include: Offshore Wells, oil and gas transmission line pipe and API grades for other wells.
OCTG pup joint manufacturer
Production methods include Seamless and Electric Welded.
Rotoflux? flux leakage rotary probe assembly detects longitudinal defects in OCTG product. Transverse Rotoflux probes test for transverse defects. Probes are adjustable for size changes.
Casing, line pipe, drill pipe, and other types of oil and gas tubes are best inspected using Flux Leakage and Ultrasonic multi test systems. Sucker rods and umbilicals are best inspected using Eddy Current and Ultrasonic multi test systems.
