Transneft Diascan took part in the Congreso Mexicano del Petróleo (CMP 2017), held in Monterrey (Mexico) on 7–10 June 2017.

The company’s booth displayed a dummy model of a combined magnetic defectoscope with axial and circumferential magnetization (MFL + TFI). The device is a unique development of Transneft Diascan. Its operating principle relies on a method of magnetic flux leakage registration in axial and circumferential directions. The metal loss defects in the magnetised pipe wall cause a magnetic flux leakage which is registered by the device. The application of the axial and circumferential magnetisation in the defectoscope enables more efficient and precise spotting of various types of defects, including illegal tie-ins and welded joint defects.

Starting from 2006, the Congreso Mexicano del Petróleo takes place annually with the support of businesses connected with oil exploration and production, is led by the Mexican Association of Exploration Geophysicists (AMGE), and is the major event in the oil and gas industry of Latin America.
