Pre-production and test programs

Working closely with the top plate and pipe mills and suppliers of subsea equipment, we advise on every aspect of pre-production and testing programs.

At pre-production meetings, Microalloying consultants:

  • Review the Manufacturing Pipe Specification (MPS) and Inspection Test Plan (ITP)
  • Discuss and provide input for all operations as required
  • Review qualification results
  • Approve MPS and ITP

We also develop special pre-production test programs for:

  • API RP2Z
  • Strain-based design
