Client: Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij BV (NAM)
Application: Third-party inspection services to the Norgon pipeline project
Project scope: Inspection services from manufacturing to laying
NAM is the leading producer of natural gas in the Netherlands, accounting for 74% of total Dutch production. Lloyd’s Register Energy was involved in providing design appraisal and third-party inspection services to its Norgron pipeline project, which connects the Groningen gas field and NAM’s Norg storage facility in Langelo through a 30km, 120-centimetre diameter pipeline.
We provided third–party inspection services, starting with the pipeline fabrication in China and manufacturing of the bend material in Europe, to the build phase which included testing welds according to the ITP (inspection test plan) set up by our appraisal department involving visual examinations and non-destructive testing.
