HOIS Publishes Recommended Practice for Inspection

ESR Technology has announced that HOIS, its joint industry project concerning improved nondestructive testing in the oil and gas industry, has published a recommended practice guide for the inspection of weld corrosion.

"The publication of this document provides a recommended practice to oil and gas producing companies and inspection companies on the preferred inspection methods and techniques for a variety of conditions," says Dr. Steve Burch, ESR Technology's head of inspection technology and HOIS manager.
