The oil and gas exploration and production (upstream) sector -one of three industry sectors- is comprised of companies that locate and extract hydrocarbons. 

Applus + offers a wide range of upstream services focused on non-destructive testing and inspection services to support oil and gas production and exploration companies in achieving operational goals and reducing risks. We support the upstream sector by providing an extensive range of  NDT services, including failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA), process hazards analysis, rope access inspection, automated ultrasonic testing, rig inspection, and thermography services, among other effective NDT solutions.

Hydrocarbons are organic chemical compounds made up of hydrogen and carbon. The two elements are the principal components of the production of natural gas and petroleum. Engineers, geologists, technicians, and laborers, among other team members, collaborate to extract these commodities through the use of complex systems and equipment. The first step to extraction is the exploration of commodities. This process is executed through geological and geophysical surveys and legal processes that involve contractual agreements between the government and other entities.

After all exploration procedures are completed, production commences. Production or extraction of materials is performed by utilizing a combination of conventional and advanced assets. These play an integral role in the successful extraction of materials. Examples of assets include onshore and offshore pipes, vessels, oil platforms (rigs), and pump jack systems to complete extraction most cost-effectively and safely possible, with consideration to environmental impact and the safety of crew members both on onshore and offshore facilities.

Applus+ upstream oil and gas services reassure its clients that their above-mentioned conventional and advanced assets comply with all applicable standards, minimize the level of risk to the assets, and help to maintain productivity through NDT and inspection services.
