Reducing Deepwater Pipeline Inspection Costs
Inspecting a deepwater pipeline is extremely challenging. One problem might be that it lies more than 2,000 m (6,500 ft.) subsea, giving rise to issues commonly associated with working in this remote environment, such as high pressure and accessibility. Another is that the pipeline was probably not designed with a view to making it piggable and easy to inspect. As a result, inspection is often problematic, time-consuming and expensive. To address these issues, a customized inline inspection (ILI) tool that employs ultrasonic technology has proven to be a very effective, field-proven solution.
This Whitepaper will discuss how using bespoke inspection technology, combined with greater involvement of pipeline inspection engineers early in the pipeline design process, helps to reduce the complexity and costs of inspecting deepwater pipelines.
