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 Big Easy is Choosing NDT Tanknicians

The Greater New Orleans region is an industrial center for the region’s offshore oil and gas industry. The 7 petroleum refineries operating in the Greater New Orleans area produce over 1.5 million barrels of oil each day, which accounts for 10% of the USA’s total refining capacity. Petroletum companies including Shell, Ankor Energy, Valero Energy, Marathon, and PBR Energy operate in the region. Offshore oil fields including Thunder Horse, Stonefly, Mad Dog, and the Vito Deepwater Oilfield have produced millions of barrels of oil as well as high-paying jobs for the region. Altogether, the energy sector has created nearly 20k jobs in the Greater New Orleans area. New Orleans is also home to many chemical manufacturing companies, including Penton & Myriad and Gulf Coast Chemical.

This thriving industrial economy is supported by the city’s transportation infrastructure, which includes one of the world’s busiest port systems and the only port in the country that provides convenient access to all six Class I railroads.

The subtropical climate of the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner region puts its above ground storage tanks and pressure vessels at increased risk of humidity-related degradation, and the salty sea air of the Gulf of Mexico accelerates oxidation of tank materials, leading to further corrosion. Our New Orleans customers trust our expert coating and lining services to extend the lifespan of their assets. Our Tanknicians also provide repair and engineering services, helping our customers protect against the threat of the region’s frequent tropical cyclones and hurricanes. These services, along with our non-destructive testing, provide our New Orleans customers with peace of mind.
