27th ASNT Research Symposium - Orlando
This 1st Oman Inspection & Integrity Conference was organized by the ASNT Oman Section and held on October 16 & 17, 2019 at the Hormuz Grand Hotel Muscat. The event was managed by PIMS QUEST and mainly sponsored by the national oil company Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), which also sat on this event’s steering committee.
This conference brought together NDT Service providers with industries and facilities that need NDT technologies, some of which were brought to Oman for the first time by the developers themselves. Furthermore, this was also a first of its kind conference that specifically brought together integrity engineers with nondestructive testing service providers and technologists, NDT being an integral part of all integrity systems through such programs as Risk-Based Inspection (RBI), Fitness for Service (FFS) and On-Stream Inspection (OSI), programs that engineers tend to be more familiar with than the NDT that provides most of the input data for these programs.
This event welcomed 165 delegates to visit 14 table-top exhibits, participate in three workshops and listen to 10 technical paper presentations.
