We are currently looking for a Corrosion And Materials Specialist to provide trouble shooting and technical support in the areas of corrosion, metallurgy, welding, fabrication, inspection and equipment integrity management.
As an Asset Integrity Associate (AI Associate), assist in developing and implementing projects such as Asset Optimization studies, Risk Based Inspection (RBI), mechanical integrity program implementation, inspection program development, and facility or equipment condition assessment
ExxonMobil Research and Engineering is seeking a Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) Engineer to provide global NDE and inspection support for downstream business.
The rules and regulations applying to U.S states, cities and Canadian provinces and territories concerning piping, pressure vessel and storage tank inspection can be described as "a coat of many colors," and are meant to represent continuous improvement over time. This table provides some information that will hopefully be useful to you regarding the level of acceptance of API 510 by the state, city, province and territorial authorities.
Joint integrity programs (JIP) should be an integral part of every refinery, petrochemical, production, or other industrial-complex facility operations.
New inline inspections and integrity management systems allow operators to understand the complexities and economics of terminals’ and station’s complex aging pipeline infrastructure.
Periodically, oil refinery and petrochemical plant operating companies conduct complex turnarounds for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to, scheduled maintenance, facility upgrades, and code compliance. In this series of articles published in Inspectioneering Journal, I will begin by detailing a roadmap for pre-turnaround inspection planning activities.
UAS (Unmanned Arial System) drone technology has numerous applications, including anything at elevated heights or where human access and/or occupancy are prohibited, or in the case of confined spaces, limited.
Technicians inspecting oil & gas installations and petrochemical plants employ a wide variety of nondestructive testing (NDT) techniques. A new technology has recently been developed that utilizes a real-time portable imaging device which has distinct advantages in finding internal corrosion.
Over recent years large strides have been made in application, development, and utilization of Digital Detector Arrays (DDAs) in field radiography environments (an application previously limited to film and computed radiography [CR] techniques).
Performing adequate quality control inspection, pre-shipment inspections, commissioning, expediting, and auditing services are necessary to reduce risk throughout your supply chain.
Composite repair systems can be a great option for owner/ operators to extend the life of their assets without disrupting operations.
Maintaining the mechanical integrity of above ground storage tanks (AST’s) is the focal point of tank inspection programs. Performing internal inspections is an integral part of a tank integrity program, however, deciding when to take a tank out of service to perform an internal inspection is not an easy determination to make.
This article is the fifth of a series of articles that will focus on one critical sub process within a PEIP that is key in managing the integrity of process piping; Thickness Monitoring Programs for Internal Corrosion.
This post concludes the Top 7 reasons why some operating sites "just don’t get it." Reference the previous post for here and here. And for examples of all of the management systems for a sustainable PEI program of excellence, read my article, "The 101 Essential Elements of Pressure Equipment Integrity Management for the Hydrocarbon Process Industry"
Flint Hills Resources, LLC (http://www.fhr.com/) operates oil refineries and chemical plants across North America. Our Port Arthur, TX chemical plant is hiring an Inspector to join their Mechanical Integrity team. Our chemical plant is poised for extensive growth due to expansions on site.
Plant integrity, safety, and reliability are major concerns to all plant operators and managers. The primary objective of Asset Integrity Management (AIM) is to maintain the asset in a fit-for-service condition while extending its remaining life in the most reliable, safe, and cost-effective manner.
