WPQ s are on BMWC pipeline
Project qualified welder log
Continuity reports are available upon request
Inspects the welds for all discontinuities when access allows inspect the weld root internally. Checks code for acceptable value limits.
If the weld is acceptable uses an appropriate marker and writes VT OK initial and date adjacent to the weld (do not apply markings on weld). If it is rejectable mark problem areas and report the issue to the foreman.
Checks for any temporary attachments that may have been welded. If found identify the areas for any required NDE.
Each weld is to be assigned a number on the isometric drawing. Number the welds per project requirements. Once the weld numbers are assigned the drawing is known as the weld map. The weld map is then used to create weld logs or daily weld reports.
Documents the inspections on the weld logs or daily weld reports. This documentation is to be neat and concise.

Provide notice if required to others that will be witnessing the test.
When informed that the hydrostatic test is pressurized walk‐down the piping checks each weld and mechanical joint for leaks, ensuring that proper gauge and test equipment is in place, test is within required temperature and pressure range and that the test pressure is not dropping. Ensures that other witnesses are satisfied with the test. If test results are satisfactory allow the piping to be drained until verification that the pressure test gauge zeros. Signs the hydro‐test form.
