Well Audit and Remedial Services
BTI Services now offers well auditing to assist clients in identifying deteriorative or non-conformance issues related to air-to-surface pipe corrosion, wellhead configuration or installation and mechanical conditions related to the functionality of the components.
The audit is a visual inspection with the added feature of a non-destructive testing (NDT) capability for measuring wall thickness remaining in identified areas of concern. The focus of the audit is to examine conductor, exposed casing and all wellhead components to ensure pressure bearing qualities are not undermined by unknown corrosion conditions or substandard maintenance practices.
BTI personnel will provide detailed wellhead drawings and detailed documentation identifying Immediate Concerns, Suggestions, and Recommended Actions. All findings are based on API and industry standards to identify deficiencies and provide resolutions in an attempt to prevent any safety incident or potential environmental event due to equipment failure.
Remedial Services – Metal Protection
BTI Services, in alliance with Oxifree®, offers a metal protection coating service. The polymeric resin coating provides for the protection of metallic components and structures of any size or shape. With deep penetrating organic corrosion inhibitors, the coating shields against many corrosive contaminants, ensuring the ultimate protection of assets. The coating also shields against the ingress of dust, sand, mud and organic matter, therefore resisting contamination in many situations.
When applied, the coating encapsulates the metal object, and the coating becomes an airtight protective sheath with a rubber like consistency. Oxifree will protect for 20 plus years and can be removed at any time without damaging the substrate and without the need for special equipment. (Oxifree® Metal Protection, Oxifree Global LLC)
