Casing and tubing Inspection is a crucial aspect for ensuring that the integrity and safety of oil and gas wells are maintained. The inspection process involves several techniques and procedures to detect material defects, corrosion, mechanical damage (dents, bends, and deformations), wear, erosion and other issues that might compromise the performance of the casing and tubing. This inspection service yields operations that are safe, efficient, and reliable.


Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA) Inspection is a vital process in the oil and gas industry that involves examining the various components of the drilling assembly such as drill bits, subs, heavy weight, collars, jars, and other components. During BHA inspection, the components of the assembly are thoroughly examined for signs of mechanical damage, wear, cracks and other issues that may compromise the integrity of the assembly or cause drilling problems. Overall, BHA inspection is an essential component of the oil and gas industry, and it plays a critical role in the safety, reliability, and efficiency of drilling operations.




This inspection process involves examining the rig’s components for signs of wear, damage, and defects that could compromise its strength and integrity. During the inspection, the rig is evaluated based on various standards such as those set by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC).

The inspection process involves a comprehensive assessment of the rig’s components, including the crown, mast, substructure, drilling equipment, and safety systems and is carried out by experienced and certified inspectors who use advanced technology and tools to assess the rig’s safety and performance. Visual inspection, non-destructive testing, and other techniques are used to identify any damage, wear, or defects that could lead to equipment failure or safety issues. The inspection results are documented and reported to the relevant parties, including rig operators, drilling contractors, and regulatory agencies as these results provide valuable information on the rig’s condition and identifies any areas that require maintenance or repairs. Rig inspections help in preventing equipment failure, minimizing downtime, and increasing the safety and efficiency of drilling operations. As such, it is an essential service for any company involved in the oil and gas industry.



Inspection of Rig Handling Equipment using Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques is a critical procedure for guaranteeing the safety and dependability of machinery used in the oil and gas sector. NDT methods are used to detect flaws and defects in the equipment without damaging it. The American Petroleum Institute standards (APIprovide guidelines for the inspection of rig handling equipment and recommends that NDT inspections be carried out on a regular basis to detect potential problems before they become serious. Manufacturers also provide guidelines for the inspection of their equipment, which should be followed in conjunction with the API standards. These guidelines typically provide specific instructions on the inspection techniques to be used, the frequency of inspections, and the acceptance criteria for defects.


The Blowout Preventer (BOP) is a crucial component in oil and gas drilling operations. During maintenance and overhauling periods, a comprehensive BOP inspection will be conducted in accordance with client maintenance procedures. Hitech’s primary focus is on Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspections, which include Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Liquid Penetrant Testing (LPT), Thickness Gauging, Hardness Testing on overhauled parts, and witnessing pressure tests. It is essential to note that Blow Out Preventer (BOP) inspection procedures may vary depending on the type of BOP, manufacturer’s recommendations, and regulatory requirements. Therefore, it is imperative to consult the relevant guidelines and standards before conducting a BOP inspection. By following proper API / NDT inspection and client maintenance procedures, the BOP stack’s reliability and effectiveness can be maximized, reducing the risk of blowouts and other catastrophic events during drilling operations.



Inspecting drill pipes is a vital procedure in the oil and gas sector. The inspection process ensures that the drill pipes are in good working condition and free from defects or damages that could compromise their integrity and safetyDuring the inspection, various techniques and tools are used to evaluate the internal and external conditions of the drill pipes, such as Electromagnetic inspection, magnetic particle inspection, ultrasonic testing, visual inspection, and others. The inspection results are then used to determine whether the drill pipes can be safely used for drilling operations or require repair or replacement.



Third-party Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) services for Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) involve independent inspection and testing of products to ensure compliance with industry standards and customer requirements. These services are crucial for the safety and reliability of the products used in the oil and gas industry. Third-party QA/QC service providers typically have a team of experienced inspectors who have witnessed various types of inspections, such as visual, dimensional, and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). The main benefits of using third-party QA/QC services for OCTG products include compliance with industry standards, quality control, increased safety and reduced risk.
