Distribution

You design, manufacture or operate offshore or onshore oil or gas transport or distribution installations.  There are many constraints on the materials used, construction lead times and production requirements.  You are continuously looking for solutions and services to guarantee that your project will be successful.

Institut de Soudure can assist you throughout your project by providing specific solutions to your needs at all stages of a project. 

  • Studies - Design

  • Manufacturing

  • Maintenance

  • Training - Certification

​We will carry out studies from drawings, we will produce and check your design notes, we will analyse the resistance of your pipelines in accordance with standards in force, to help you develop the transport and distribution system that best satisfies your expectations and is most appropriate for your environment.

We will study innovative welding and testing processes.  We will carry out corrosion tests under H2S to evaluate the resistance of materials to this component present in hydrocarbons and in crude (offshore).

​We will accompany you during manufacturing of your pipelines by qualifying your welders and your welding procedures.  We will check the quality of your equipment by carrying out appropriate non-destructive tests (X-ray, TOFD, ISISCAN, etc.) after your welding operations.

Our missions can be carried out to satisfy regulations (pressure vessels) or a contract (second and third party inspection).

We provide our expertise for in-service monitoring on your distribution networks.  We do this using the highest performance defect and corrosion detection techniques such as internal inspection using instrumented pigs, work in trenches, etc.

We study the harmfulness of the detected defects in oedre either to validate them or to give  advice about measures to be taken before your installation can be put back into service.  If a failure occurs, we can help you define the causes of the failure and give you advice about potential repairs.

​We can assist you to improve the skills of your welding, inspection and NDT personnel.
