NDT Global has announced the commercial release of the Optix data visualisation and insights platform, providing pipeline operators with an intuitive, cloud-based dashboard to visualise all inline inspection (ILI) data in one accessible location.

Optix allows cloud-based ILI data visualisation and direct interaction with the ILI vendor. Digitisation of the final inspection report, combined with the ease of filtering and arranging relevant data, allows operators to better understand their ILI inspection results and make more informed decisions to ensure the integrity of their pipelines.

Santiago Urrea, Head of Integrity and Field Verification Services for NDT Global, say: "Optix further demonstrates NDT Global's commitment to providing the best diagnostic data to drive decision-ready insights for our clients.

"When operators utilise NDT Global's leading ILI technologies to collect the best possible data, they gain the necessary diagnostic insights to make the best decisions for their specific asset. With Optix, we have further improved timely and confident decision making by bringing the power of clarity to the way operators access, interact with and consume information."

The Optix platform provides a comprehensive view of pipeline conditions not previously available, bringing together results from many inspection runs.

Moving to a secure, cloud-based platform makes that data readily available and accessible, allowing each end user to explore the information relevant to them and gain insights based on their specific needs. Having this sort of information at their fingertips means operators can make better pipeline integrity decisions in just a few clicks.
