Industrial Asset Management Made Simple

Our Inspectors are certified ASNT-SNT-TC-1A Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) technicians. Our NDT methods yield in-depth quantitative results, allowing us to calculate corrosion rates and find areas of excessive deterioration. We can then recommend the preventative maintenance needed to mitigate the probability of a hazardous discharge into the environment and avoid more costly repairs later on.

We perform both fixed interval inspections and risk-based inspections to provide insight into the structural integrity of your assets when it is most needed. Our expert API 653, API 510, STI SP0001, and API 570 inspections will uncover exactly how well your tank is holding up, to both outside elements and the product it contains.

Why the Pelican State is Choosing NDT Tanknicians

Louisiana is the largest producer of crude oil in the country and the fourth largest producer of natural gas. The 17 refineries operating in the state process over 3 million barrels of crude oil each day, with the 7 refineries in the Greater New Orleans area alone producing over 1 million barrels of oil daily and accounting for 10% of the USA’s total refining capacity. The state boasts 124,764 miles of pipeline and nearly 90% of America’s offshore oil rigs are located off the coast of Louisiana. Offshore fields including Thunder Horse, Stonefly, Mad Dog, and the Vito Deepwater Oilfield have produced both millions of barrels of oil and a wealth of high-paying jobs.

Many petrochemical companies operate in Louisiana, including Chevron, Shell, Cornerstone, Dow, Phillips 66, and the Pelican Refining Company. The state is also home to a number of chemical manufacturing companies, including Rubicon, Bercen, Reagent Chemical, and Helena Agriculture. NDT Tanknicians provides Louisiana businesses with expert service for their above ground storage tanks and pressure vessels.

Louisiana’s humid climate leads to increased risk of humidity-related degradation of its above ground storage tanks. In addition to our inspections, we provide our Louisianian customers with protective lining and coating services to extend the life of their assets. These services also protect against oxidation and corrosion caused by the salty air of the Gulf of Mexico. Louisiana is also vulnerable to tornadoes throughout the state and to major hurricanes in its southern lowlands, including the Greater New Orleans area. Our expert repair and engineering services help our Louisiana customers deal with environmental damage so that they are able to return to full capacity more quickly — or even stay up and running without costly downtime.
