Oil and gas companies in Pakistan are showing an increasing interest in non-intrusive inspection techniques. As an experienced provider of non-intrusive inspection services, SGS Pakistan has been offering technical training sessions in Karachi and other locations.


On January 7, 2015, SGS held its first such training session in Islamabad, where the head offices of most of Pakistan’s energy and petroleum companies are located. The session, held at the Oil and Gas Training Institute, offered training on non-intrusive inspection and advanced non-destructive testing techniques. It was attended by 50 participants, many of them top decision-makers, from 26 organizations, including Pakistan State Oil, OMV Pakistan and the Pakistan Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA). A representative from Pakistan‘s Ministry of Science and Technology was also there.

Operations Manager Muhammad Aqeel gave a presentation on “Non-Intrusive Inspection: an advanced approach for inspecting equipment without shutdown“.

After the session, participants enthusiastically expressed their satisfaction with the training. Many showed a deep interest in our advanced NDT and risk based inspection (RBI) services.
