Typical Cases Achieved
O&G industry, Middle East / India: Due to a specific environment on a storage area in India, a batch of 1,500 pipes for O&G Industry was rejected by the Inspection body mandated by the final user. INEXSE performed a root cause analysis and evaluated the fitness for service of the affected pipes. We wrote a reparation and rejection procedure in accordance with the specification and fit for purpose. A demonstration has been made onsite for validation. After negotiation with the Inspection Body and presentation of these elements to final client the solution has been accepted. The batch of pipes delivery could restart. We supported our client during his negotiation with his insurance to obtain compensation.
