Pre-despatch Third-party Inspection of Ex-stock OCTG
To verify that OCTG fully meets customer requirements, oil operators usually commission a third-party inspection prior to despatch from our yards. In general the scope would be: full length drift (FLD), clean and dry all threads, Visual Thread Inspection (VTI), traceability mark check against mill test certificates, mark and tally the pipe.
Additional inspection scope may be undertaken depending on customer requirements.
