Case Study: Improved Efficiency of Integrity Programs Using EMAT Technology

By Stephan Tappert, Jörg Weislogel, Ian Mullin and Korwin Moores, Baker Hughes  (P&GJ) — Various inline inspection (ILI) tools exist for different line operating conditions and defect morphologies. To address these varying conditions and morphologies, operators often need to run multiple ILI tools receiving results in separate or combined reports.    The additional data can supplement the primary data acquisition type for the targeted defect morphologies for the purpose of a more efficient integrity program via higher performance in the critical areas of defect detection, sizing, and discrimination.    Other data, such as geometry and corrosion data can be complementary for a more hol
