As an industry leader in ultra-high-tech diagnostic pipeline inspection and safety services to oil and gas production companies, NDT Global is committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety and risk management. To support this commitment, NDT Global recognized the need for a modern, globally utilized risk assessment solution.
The risk assessment solution was developed using Microsoft 365’s Power Apps (Model Driven), Power Automate, and Dataverse platforms, with reporting provided by Power BI. The project scope included creating a desktop /tablet-based application for use across the organization, with a risk assessment dashboard, filters, and the ability to create, share, filter, and edit risk assessments. The development team worked closely with NDT Global risk assessment team and employees to incorporate their feedback and ensure the solution met their needs.

In Line Inspection of Oil & Gas pipelines
- Power Apps (Model Driven)
- Power Automate
In the oil and gas industry, effective risk management is paramount, and in-line inspections (ILI) are conducted to ensure pipeline safety and efficiency. Risk assessments play a crucial role in identifying vulnerable areas susceptible to failure or damage. However, the approach to risk assessments varies significantly across regions, leading to a lack of standardization and visibility. NDT Global, a reputable inspection solutions provider, faces challenges with their field services teams using paper forms and specific workflows for risk analysis, hindering real-time visibility and standardization. Embracing technological advancements like digitization and machine learning can revolutionize risk assessment practices, enhancing standardization, visibility, and reducing risks for global ILI projects.
By streamlining risk assessments, the oil and gas industry can optimize pipeline safety and contribute to the overall efficiency and sustainability of global in-line inspection projects. This transformative step will ensure that the industry prioritizes safety and effectiveness on a global scale, further reinforcing its commitment to robust risk management practices.

The scope was to provide a desktop-based / tablet / mobile base risk assessment solution for the global risk assessment team and employees to use across the organization e.g., general business risk assessments and project-specific risk assessments. This type of R/A is usually detailed in nature involving multiple persons; hence a desktop version/tablet is more appropriate than a mobile version.
To address this challenge, NDT Global partnered with a team of developers to create a desktop-based/tablet risk assessment solution for their global risk assessment team and employees. This solution is detailed and involves multiple persons, making it more appropriate for desktop and tablet usage than mobile.
