HandyTube has been successfully qualified by MRC Energy Piping for its 6Mo (UNS S31254) seamless coil and straight length tubing up to 3.8 mm wall thickness according to NORSOK M650 Edition 4 for MDS R18.  NORSOK qualification is a very important milestone in HandyTube’s commitment to being a valued supplier and a key resource to the oil and gas industry, providing custom solutions for critical applications.

NORSOK is a set of standards developed by the Norwegian petroleum industry to ensure adequate safety, added value and cost effectiveness for development and operations in the petroleum industry and are intended to supersede oil company specifications and to serve as authorities’ regulatory references.

NORSOK M-650 verifies that a manufacturer has sufficient competence and experience producing the relevant material and the necessary manufacturing facilities and equipment to support the production of the product for the duration of the qualification period.

To meet the qualification requirements for NORSOK M-650 the purchasing company, MRC Energy Piping, is responsible for performing an audit of the manufacturer.  The results of this audit demonstrate HandyTube possesses the knowledge, equipment, processes and procedures necessary to repeatedly produce the required finished products for use in critical applications.  Upon completion of the audit MRC Energy Piping and Handy Tube signed a Qualification Test Record (QTR) stating all qualification requirements have been met.  Each QTR is specific to a particular alloy, production route, product form and product thickness.
