MISTRAS Group holds open day in Aberdeen


From 2-3 November 2016, MISTRAS Group invited people working within the oil & gas sector to an open day held at its offices in Aberdeen. The event took place over two days, which allowed MISTRAS Group the chance to showcase the services it offers to the oil & gas sector.

MISTRAS Group shared technical presentations on industry hot topics, such as stress corrosion cracking, corrosion under insulation and trunnion support inspection, as well as live demonstrations on advanced NDT and condition monitoring technologies. Customers were encouraged to bring colleagues to the event to gain an understanding of the many services that MISTRAS Group can offer to the oil & gas industry.

As a result of the event, MISTRAS Group found that the number one inspection challenge within the oil & gas industry varied between the attendees, from ‘Inspection of corrosion blisters getting an accurate remaining wall thickness’ to ‘Adopting new technology and looking beyond what we currently use’.

MISTRAS Group has three more similar events planned around the UK. The next open day will be held at its Rotherham office and will look at traditional NDT methods. For more information on these open days, contact: peter.hurn@mistrasgroup.co.uk
