Abu Dhabi, 11 November 2017. TÜV Rheinland will attend this year´s Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) - one of the world’s most influential events for the oil and gas industry. The corporation has a large portfolio of services for a wide range of industries and has established a market leader position in the Middle East to assist oil and gas companies with safe, secure and reliable operation.
Meeting point for precise technical solutions
The exhibition is an opportunity for TÜV Rheinland to meet owners and operators of oil and gas assets from over 135 countries and inform them about solutions to surface casing collapses caused by corrosion. Among other things the company has been inspecting surface and intermediate casings of cemented offshore wells with its D-PEC inspection tool for many years.
“The Research and Development team at TÜV Rheinland has developed a new tool that fits and enters the annulus between the surface casing and the intermediate casing. The previous D-PEC tool could not always be used in the annulus between conductor and surface casing if the offshore well had been cemented. We are proud to have solved this issue and are now able to provide a precise solution” said Fred Gabriels, Managing Director at TÜV Rheinland. “The new tool, which enters the surface casing via the well head, is ATEX zone 0 approved and can be used during production without compromising safety.”
At its stand TÜV Rheinland will also present the new SONOPEC equipment, an improved inspection technology used for cost effective corrosion detection and monitoring. Visitors to the booth can also find out about the small bore piping inspection approach, which helps clients replace radiography with UT inspections for piping with a diameter between ¾” and 4”.
Asset integrity management – one stop shop
This conference offers clients a great opportunity to learn from TÜV Rheinland experts how to maximize asset value, profitability and returns while safeguarding personnel, equipment and the environment with best-in-class Asset Integrity Management (AIM). TÜV Rheinland will showcase an AIM model with a flexible approach. It is used to establish full value-adding service packages tailored specifically to customer needs and individual project requirements - from project development to implementation.
