Discovery™ non-intrusively scans through both coated and uncoated subsea pipelines to build up a full tomographic image of pipe wall thickness. This allows operators to inspect unpiggable or difficult to inspect pipelines (including pipe-in-pipe, pipe bundles, risers and jumpers) without stopping/deferring production, saving up to 35% on the cost of inspection campaigns, compared with conventional scanning techniques.
Accurate sizing of wall thickness can be made in minutes with a high resolution image of the pipe wall(s) being provided from an external scan of the pipeline. The tomographic image shows flaws within the pipe walls and allows operators to plan for the future life of the pipeline. Deployment of Discovery™ brings several benefits to integrity specialists:
