To achieve these cost savings, it&rsquo;s imperative that a company selects quality service centers that will deliver on-time, on-budget and with honest pricing. That&rsquo;s why OilPatch Technologies is proud to have rebuilt multiple mobile inspection stations for one of the largest and best oilfield equipment suppliers, Tuboscope &ndash; National Oilwell Varco.&nbsp; For Tuboscope it was essential that the company that provide refurbishment work was completed by experienced technicians that understood NDT inspection principals, electrical wiring, hydraulics, and how pipe yards worked.
