Refinery Inspection & Maintenance Services

Operating in the downstream and midstream pipeline sectors of Canada’s oil & gas industry, MISTRAS brings decades of experience to our clients’ assets and facilities. We ensure that your assets are operating safely, efficiently, and in compliance through inspection, maintenance, and engineering services and programs. Whether you require an individual inspection service or a facility-wide asset protection program, MISTRAS is equipped to perform the right inspection solution for your assets and facilities.

Refinery Inspection Services

We inspect assets with non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection techniques, enabling refinery piping, storage tanks, pressure vessels, flare stacks, and other assets to stay in-service during inspections to maximize operational uptime.

We perform these services in the field, inspecting for corrosion, erosion, leaking, cracking, and other mechanical integrity concerns that affect refinery assets. We also offer in-house lab services to inspect for discontinuities in newly-fabricated components such as welded components, castings, raw materials, and machined parts.

MISTRAS deploys rope access and unmanned inspection teams to access assets in hard-to-reach and confined locations. Our certified pilots utilize drones for preliminary visuals on potential problem areas, helping to pre-qualify inspection and maintenance plans, and our small rope access teams follow up with more intensive inspections.

Refinery Maintenance Services

Using small, multi-disciplined inspection and maintenance crews, our teams provide light mechanical services to prepare assets for inspections, such as removing insulation to inspect for corrosion under insulation (CUI). We’ll also remedy minor damages found during the inspection process, such as performing corrosion mitigation. These teams can also perform installations of monitoring systems, enabling plant operators to stay informed of their asset’s conditions at all times.

Pipeline Inspection & Maintenance Services

Our pipeline teams help to simplify pipeline condition management. With a major presence in Canada’s Oil Sands region, we specialize in pipeline new construction inspections and pipeline integrity assessments.  Our comprehensive range of integrity-based nondestructive evaluation (NDE) solutions for buried and aboveground pipelines help your operation maximize safety, achieve regulatory compliance, and help extend your pipeline’s lifetime.

MISTRAS’ pipeline crawlers are adaptable to fit many pipeline diameters, providing real-time identification, location, and sizing of weld material defects.

Our expansive pipeline fleet enables us to access and assess pipelines in remote locations. We also offer monitoring systems for hard-to-access pipelines, which report changes in pipeline cross-sections back to pipeline operators, reducing the costs and hazards associated with regularly visiting these assets.
