Applus expands for Marcellus

TECHNOLOGY Services company Applus RTD's Pittsburgh expansion to service Marcellus shale formation operations has begun with the opening of a base in the Pennsylvanian city following demand for its non-destructive testing (NDT) services in the area.

Applus RTD director for US shale development Martin Derby said the company would provide conventional NDT services like radiography, ultra-sonic testing and digital radiography testing.
