Element Secures Pipe Testing Project for Middle East Heavy Oil Development ProgramSource: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/9/2018, Location: Middle East
Element Materials Technology (Element) has secured a contract with ENGIE Fabricom to undertake pipe induction bend testing for a heavy oil development program in Kuwait.
Element Antwerp will conduct mechanical testing (tensile tests, impact tests, hardness tests), alongside metallurgical testing (microscopic examinations) on all sections of ENGIE Fabricom pipe induction bends. Testing at Element Amsterdam will include oil and gas corrosion testing services such as hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) and sulphite stress cracking (SCC).
The laboratories will initially conduct information tests and assess that bending parameters are correct so the customer can use the calibration test results in production. Materials are examined for precipitation of the material microstructure and on parameters such as tensile strength, impact toughness and hardness.
Rod Martin, EVP for Oil & Gas, Element, said: “Our state-of-the-art technology and expertise ensures that customer infrastructure assets are safe and will deploy as expected in the field. The materials science capability at our Antwerp laboratory and sour service corrosion testing in Amsterdam helps our customers to reduce future risk of damage to pipelines and provide assurance on performance and safety.”
Element Antwerp is a BELAC (NEN-EN-ISO/IEC17025) accredited metallics laboratory in Belgium, offering a complete range of materials testing and research services. It specializes in delivering metallography, weld testing services, corrosion testing services, chemical analysis services and failure analysis services to the Oil & Gas sector.
Element Amsterdam is a NEN-EN-ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory that provides a wide range of materials testing, corrosion testing, weld testing and failure analysis services to the Oil & Gas sector.
