In 2018, Transneft Diascan performed in-line inspection of more than 4 thou km of pipelines for external customers abroad.

Last year, the Сompany's specialists conducted in-line inspection in the Republic of Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Bahrain, Brazil, Malaysia and Oman. The inspection was carried out using multichannel geometry tools, MFL and TFI magnetic inspection tools, combined magnetic (MFL + TFI) and combined ultrasonic (WM + CD) devices.

In 2019 Transneft Diascan plans to carry out work in Algeria: last year a contract  was signed with Sonatrach, an Algerian national oil and gas company, to carry out work on ILI for pipeline sections of 16 and 30 inches with a total length of about 600 km. It is also planned to implement projects for in-line inspection in the territory of Indonesia and Pakistan.

For reference:

Transneft Diascan is the largest Russian supplier providing services of technical diagnostics for pipelines with a diameter of 159 to 1220 mm (6” – 48”). The work is carried out using proprietary inspection tools: geometry tools; ultrasonic, magnetic, combined magnetic and combined magnetic ultrasonic inspection tools; ultrasonic devices for multi-angle examination of pipe walls and inspection tools to detect defects in the insulation coating of pipelines. Currently, Transneft Diascan’s fleet of modern in-line inspection tools contains about 90 units. All of them allow to assess the technical condition of pipeline transportation facilities with high accuracy and ensure environmental safety of hydrocarbon transportation.
