The meeting took place within the scope of the Memorandum of Cooperation signed by Transneft and Sonatrach National Company for Exploration, Production, Transportation, Processing and Sale of Hydrocarbons (Algeria) in October 2017.
The Forest of Victory commemorative event is arranged by the Government of Moscow Region on an annual basis. Transneft Diascan has become a traditional participant in the event.
The purpose of the event was to improve anti-terrorist measures taken by the security directorate for Transneft Diascan facilities and to check the extent to which interaction with the security services of Lukhovitsy Urban District is arranged.
Design engineers from Transneft Diascan created a unique device that runs through the pipeline and allows you to detect defects of various types (longitudinal cracks, defects of longitudinal and transverse welded joints, pitting corrosion, delamination and metal loss as well as scratch marks).
The Company exhibited cutting-edge solutions and developments for in-line inspection of its own production: mockup models of a multichannel geometry tool and a magnetic defectoscope with a speed regulator.
For precisely an hour, from 8.30 to 9.30 p.m., indoor and outdoor lightning, as well as auxiliary lights and the sign on the façade were put out at the administrative building of Transneft Diascan.
Within the upgrading programme, 10 combined magnetic ultrasonic defectoscopes of three sizes (20”, 28/32” and 40/48”) were improved.
The meeting participants also welcomed progress in cooperation between Transneft Diascan and Iranian oil and gas companies in NDT control of the pipeline infrastructure.
Transneft Diascan’s test ground is unique in terms of its equipment and technical possibilities. The facility has no analogue in the international inspection practice.
During the comprehensive acceptance testing, both devices showed good resistance to climatic and mechanical impact; the testing also proved the passport specifications of defect detection and measurement errors to be compliant with with the job requirements.
