Pipemill Surveillance & Steel Mill Inspection

Pipemill Surveillance & Steel Mill Inspection

The Mill Surveillance of FCI ensures that the pipe or steel needed by clients is available in time for their projects. More importantly, we ensure the pipe or steel complies with the required specification, code, or standard.

In addition to the above, our team of experts spread across the globe applies their extensive knowledge throughout the seamless and welded manufacturing process. Our services are not limited to steel production and line-pipe. They include Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) such as drill pipe and specialized casings as well.

From random surveillance to a full inspection team, FCI offers a full range of options to clients. The inspection team may include local personnel, expatriate personnel, or both to meet the requirements of the project. Additionally, the inspection process may include coating, load out inspection, inspection supervision, final bench inspectors, hydro-test inspection, etc.
