NDT Global Conducting Baseline Inspection for Trans Adriatic Pipeline

Special to P&GJ

NDT Global, a leading supplier of ultrasonic inline inspection, acoustic resonance technology, and advanced data analytics, announced it was awarded the contract to complete a baseline inspection survey for Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG, headquartered in Baar, Switzerland.

This 878-kilometer (545-mile) large-diameter gas pipeline system possesses characteristics including mountainous terrain, high elevation profile, high wall thickness and a complex subsea depth profile, which NDT Global manages using ART Scan technology, while combining wall thickness, geometry, and mapping survey capabilities into a single inspection, NDT said. 

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline is part of the Southern Gas Corridor, transporting natural gas to Europe from the Shah Deniz II field in Azerbaijan, according to its website. The pipeline crosses Northern Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea before coming ashore in Southern Italy to connect to the Italian natural gas network.

"NDT Global are excited to begin this baseline inspection program with Trans Adriatic Pipeline,” said Willem Vos, head of project management. “This award further illustrates that gas pipeline operators recognize the advantage of high accuracy UT inspections and further solidifies the future of Acoustic Resonance technology in the global gas pipeline market."
