SUBSEA LEAK DETECTION SERVICES

The offshore oil and gas industry depends extensively on pipeline networks, to transfer fluids especially petroleum products from one place to another. Due to the fact, that petroleum products exist in large quantities under seabed; pipeline may be installed and spreads over hundreds of miles on the seabed, and continuously expanding in the harsh environment. Any leakage can damage the environment and cause economic loss. Therefore, detecting leaks and containing its hazardous effects is essential. But how? Subsea100 Global is a leading solution provider, having carried out more than 30 operations successfully in the past 7yrs, even in the most difficult terrain in Africa and the North Sea.

As the complexities of offshore oil and gas production continue to increase, and the pressure to reduce risk, lower capital costs, and decrease downtime are required, these factors present a clear opportunity for Subsea100 laser LiDAR technology and 3D data solutions.  The technology has been used successfully across multiple vibration projects around the world in water depths up to 3000 meters. Valuable 3D information such as drill cutting assessments and volume surveys were acquired in real-time. In addition, several comprehensive projects included: the slow transient movement of a wellhead while connected to the blowout preventer and drilling risers at around 0.14 Hz as well as during workover intervention operations. The controllable beam allowed multi-location measurements which can later monitor vibration and also offer analysis with mode affect translations. The core technology also locates reflective fluids with a higher reflectivity than seawater to identify and locate leaks from production or commissioning fluids such as Mono-ethylene glycol (MEG); hydraulic production control fluids, and oils.
