Compliance regulations are derived from lessons learned from past experience and aim to provide industries with infrastructure knowledge, enhanced efficiencies and increased safety awareness. Numerous code bodies exist to help ensure an adequate focus on equipment and process types while supporting world-class production. The API (American Petroleum Institute), AWS (American Welding Society), STI (Steel Tank Institute) and NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) provide but a few of the recommended practices adopted throughout the world’s energy sectors.
Applus+ has developed numerous strategies for asset integrity inspection in line with the recommended practices set out in American Petroleum Institute’s (API) guidelines for pressure vessel inspection, pipeline inspection and above ground storage tank (AST) inspection. Through systematically developed approaches to asset integrity inspection, Applus+ can help mitigate risk while prolonging life of systems, helping to create a safe working environment and providing asset integrity insights across operations.
