Improving Midstream Oil and Gas Industry Inspections With Effective NDT
Between the drilling of the upstream oil and gas industry and the downstream refining of oil into consumer and industrial products, is the midstream oil and gas industry. This sector is responsible for processing and storing, plus getting oil where it needs to go using pipelines, trucks, and ships. It is the longest part of the oil and gas stream, carrying petroleum products thousands of miles from fields to refineries around the world.
In the oil and gas industry, the prices aren’t certain from day to day. The regulations and how they are interpreted change across borders, and new regulations are debated every year. However, with nondestructive testing (NDT) of midstream oil and gas industry equipment and infrastructure, companies can at least be certain that their products will arrive at downstream refinery facilities without costly leaks or headline-grabbing spills.
Zetec has been a leading manufacturer of ultrasonic and eddy current NDT testing equipment for decades. With state-of-the-art technology for complete testing solutions, Zetec provides peace of mind for midstream oil and gas industry operations by protecting people and assets.
