Early last year, Flexlife and our partners Oceaneering, were awarded a multi-year flexible riser scanning project in Brazil to detect annulus flooding level, and if required, armour wire thickness. Utilising FlexScan®, our patented UT scanning technique, this is the largest flexible riser scanning campaign of its kind.
This campaign has so far lasted 10 months, with almost uninterrupted scanning and offshore teams working 28-day rotations, despite the complications of the COVID-19 pandemic. The results have delivered our Client conclusive data with regards to the annulus of the flexibles over multiple FPSO’s and in water depths of over 2km.
This scope has been carried out via a ROV support vessel while being supported by Flexlife onshore teams in Brazil and the UK.
