• Tubing

    Description

    New oilfield tubulars are never perfect which is why a thorough inspection program is essential to optimize tubing performance and extend the life of your tubing string. Our proven inspection techniques identify manufacturing defects that can cause failures and downtime.

    • Seams and overlaps
    • Rolled-in slugs and pits
    • Longitudinal cracks
    • Transverse cracks
    • Thin wall / eccentricity
    • Hardness Variations

    Inspection of new tubing is performed in Tuboscope facilities around the world

    Tuboscope Equipment Utilized:
    TruScan™
     - a full body UT system measuring wall and defects at multiple orientations
    Truscope AS – single pass, full body UT and EMI inspection
    Truscope – a full body UT system measuring wall and detecting defects at multiple orientations
    Amalog – detects longitudinal defects such as laps, seams, gouges…
    Sonoscope - detects transverse defects and 3 dimensional defects such as pitting and holes
    Wall Data – per joint spreadsheet providing min, max, average wall values
    Wall Profile – per joint spreadsheet providing min, max, average wall values at selected segments along the length of the pipe
    Wall Mapping – complete recording of all wall values
    Laser OD Measuring – outside diameter measurement system
    OD Measuring/ Wall Mapping – wall, OD, ID, volumetric value, estimated weight per foot, ovality

    Regular inspection of used tubing is crucial to reduce downtime and manage production costs. On-site or in a Tuboscope facility, our used tubing inspection programs help you identify pipe that is fit-for-service, and pinpoint potential service-induced defects that can cause failures.

    Common defects found in used tubing:

    • Corrosion pitting
    • Rod wear
    • Erosion
    • Mechanical damage
    • Thread and coupling damage

    Inspection of used tubing can be performed in the field or in a Tuboscope facility.

    Tuboscope Equipment Utilized:
    Amalog (EMI)– detects longitudinal defects such as laps, seams, gouges…
    Sonoscope (EMI)- detects transverse defects and 3 dimensional defects such as pitting and holes
    Full Length Drift (FLD) – detecting mashes, dents, incorrect weight
    WellChek- combination of EMI, Isolog and eddy current inspection that detects internal and external defects.

    Quick size changeover and recalibration process

    • Records exact defect and joint location in the well
    • Real time usable information
    • On-site inspection eliminates need for trucking to inspection facilities
    • Immediate re-use of good tubing

    Defect Detection:

    • Corrosion pitting
    • Rod wear
    • Wall loss
    • Cracks
    • Erosion
    • Splits
    • Cuts
    • Holes
    • 3-Dimensional transverse defects
