scope:

Included in this practice are the recommended procedures for field inspection and testing of new oil country tubular goods (OCTO). For the purpose of this document, OCTO is defined as including casing, tubing, pup joints, couplings, connectors, plain-end casing liners, and plain-end drill pipe. This recommended practice has been prepared to address the practices and technology commonly used in field inspection; however, certain parts may be suitable for mill inspections.

The recommended practices established within this document are intended as an inspection and/or testing guide, and nothing in this guide shall be interpreted to prohibit the agency or owner from using personal judgment, supplementing the inspection with other techniques, extending existing techniques, or reinspecting certain lengths.

This recommended practice covers the qualification of inspection personnel, a description of inspection methods and apparatus calibration and standardization procedures for various inspection methods. The evaluation of imperfections and marking of inspected new OCTO are included.

This document shall be used as a guide applicable to the methods for field inspection and shall not be used as a basis for acceptance or rejection. Acceptance or rejection of new API monogrammed OCTO shall be based on conformance with API Specification 5CT, API Specification 5D, and API Standard 5B.
