An Introduction to the Importance of In-Field Verification


In-Field Verification is a critical component of any In-Line Inspection (ILI) validation campaign. However, if not executed correctly, it can cast a shadow of doubt over the ILI performance and compromise the integrity decision-making process.

This concise 30-minute recorded video presentation with expert Tom Oldfield serves as an introduction to the subject matter, addressing its nuances, hurdles, and provides simple yet effective steps that operators can adopt to ensure the quality of the data collected in the field meets an adequate standard for validating ILI performance.

Course Objectives

The objective of this training is to become familiar with various components of in-field verification for an In-Line Inspection (ILI) validation. By the end of the course you will be able:

  • Understand why data quality is important for ILI validation
  • Understand what the implications of using varied quality data in ILI validation
  • To be able to determine if the NDT company that are doing the in-field measurements are competent
  • What to do in-field if there are discrepancies between the measurements
  • What do you do with the data once we have collected it?
