ESR Technology managed HOIS, a well established (>30 years) joint industry project on good practice for NDT/NDE in the petrochemical industry. 

Members comprise (currently 40):

  • Category 1 (GBP 33k + VAT): oil & gas operators
  • Category 2 (GBP 11k + VAT): NDT service companies, equipment vendors, notified/appointed bodies, The Oil and Gas Technology Centre and a UK regulatory authority (HSE)

The HOIS vision is to improve the effectiveness of in-service inspection for the oil and gas industry through:

  • More reliable in-service inspection - better detection of in-service degradation
  • More accurate measurements of remaining wall thickness
  • Providing asset owners with improved information on asset condition
  • Reducing leaks and near misses.

HOIS achieves these objectives by:

  • Developing good practice documents for specific applications including HOIS Recommended Practices and international standards.  These can directly feed in to NDT service company inspection procedures.
  • Improved information on performance of current inspection techniques by means of rigorously controlled blind trials.
  • Being the leading forum for latest developments - sharing and addressing technology gaps
  • Development of novel inspection techniques for specialised applications.
