Experience shows that in many cases of industrial decision making, proper knowledge of various aspects of a particular technology plays an important role. Therefore, if positive decisions are desired to be taken in favour of introducing NDT in the industry in any country, its decision-makers should be properly equipped with knowledge and information about this area of technology. The purpose of this paper is to review the following topics: Historical development of NDT and its relationship to destructive testing; The technology of NDT methods and its physics fundamental principles, comparison, and guide selection of NDT methods; The standards and its importance in NDT services; NDT requirements of key energy infrastructure; The economic importance of NDT in oil and gas industry-describe and statistics; The contribution of NDT to the enhancement occupational safety and environmental protection in oil and gas industry; The local experience in NDT and some other international experiences; Cooperation between competent International organizations and energy sector in NDT (IAEA as an example).
