Body Inspection

We perform a thorough visual inspection of casing for obvious external damages such as corroded, dented, or bent tubes. Most damages arise from handling of the tubulars in transport.

Visual Thread Inspection (VTI)

We thoroughly clean, visually inspect, and evaluate both pin and box end connections for any damages. Damages include pitted, cut, mashed or galled threads. Any defects noted will be clearly marked on the joint of the pipe and identified on the inspection report.

Drill Pipe – BHA

Drill pipe is subjected to stresses in tension, compression, torsion, and bending, so its inspection is essential to detect defects related to manufacturing, handling, and drilling.  Our DP inspection services ensure DP is fit-for-service and extends your DP life cycle. Our comprehensive DP inspection program assists in maximizing your drill string performance and ensures your DP is fit-for-service before it is put in the hole.  With a simple clean and visual inspection of 5% of any string that is new to location we can ensure you are receiving DP that has been properly inspected. 

On the next full inspection, we not only identify damages but provide recommendations to reduce damages if they are not part of normal wear.  For example, stabbing damage, over-torque, potential lack of thread compound and defective machining.  Our goal is to prevent down hole drilling problems, ensure that you are paying for your damages not the previous user of DP, and guide your team in the proper handling and maintenance of DP.

Ultrasonic (UT), electromagnetic inspection (EMI), magnetic particle (MPI), and multiple dimensional checks are used to detect defects that are crucial to preventing downhole failures, saving you potential downtime and reducing costs.

Our inspections are performed in-plant or in the field.  All tool joint and tubular inspection services are carried out in accordance with API or DS-1 standards.
