NCS Fluid Handling System Caillan and Mitch Hydrotesting
Last week we had some fun with the past and celebrating ourselves. We felt that a moment to recognize the location and industry that helped form a basis of many businesses and careers was in order. All the sepia pictures and black and white photos were taken in Leduc Alberta at the Leduc No 1 historical site, located just outside of Devon Alberta. Leduc No. 1 was a major crude oil discovery made near Leduc, Alberta, Canada on February 13, 1947. It provided the geological key to Alberta's most prolific conventional oil reserves and resulted in a boom in petroleum exploration and development across Western Canada. At the time in theaters in the USA and Europe a clip from news from around the world was played prior to the film and it was during these news clips that international attention was brought to Canada and Alberta as a destination for investment and energy exploration. We want to thank the members of the Leduc No. 1 historical society for the opportunity to enjoy their facility for the day, tour their interpretative center and grab some fantastic photos.
As we celebrate the past 5 years and the people that got us there, we felt the energy theme seemed an appropriate Segway to another NCS Core service. It was 5 years ago this month that NCS Fluid Handling Systems hydro-tested its first tank under the direction of Caillan Charpentier and the project management of Mitch Hawman, while this was not the first tank this tandem had tested in their carers it was the 1st under their NCS Banner, As discussed, many times in our forums, the proper designing of Water Transfer Systems, and Tank Hydro-Tests must consider all elements of each situation and project. As a NCS Project Manager Mitch Hawman is trained in all the regulations and risks of a test water transfer system and that the hydrotest needs to incorporate all the important design considerations of pumping and filtration throughout the care and custody of test water, and that a hydrotest is not just the water transfer.
