NDT Global receives Åsgard inspection contract
from Statoil

Feb 16, 2016  + + +  NDT Global today announced that it has received a multi-million euro contract, on behalf of Gassco, from Statoil, the leading Norwegian gas and oil enterprise. In close collaboration with Statoil, NDT Global is developing a suitable ILI (Inline Inspection) tool for the Åsgard Transport gas pipeline.

The high profile project contract was won despite strong competition. By offering an innovative inspection solution and sound engineering plan, NDT Global received this high profile project order from Statoil. The offered inspection tool includes the latest in-house developments of combined inspection technologies.

The project presents a number of unique challenges: in addition to the line’s sizable 707 km length, the wall thickness of the pipeline is exceptionally high – up to 55 mm. Under these conditions, ILI tools must be exceptionally durable, and still able to accurately detect any flaws that could compromise the pipeline’s integrity. Moreover, tools need to negotiate a sizable, 14 inch change in diameter in the 28 to 42 inch pipeline – all the while maintaining excellent operability, high data quality and accuracy.
