  • Day 4

  • Date: 29th May 2020
  • Presenter: Tom Steinvoorte
  • Company: ROSEN
  • Title of presentation: The Inspection of an Isolated 8” Riser. No Flow Required
  • Synopsis: In-line inspection of offshore pipelines using conventional tools and procedures is not always possible, due to a combination of various challenges. This webinar discusses a recent example of such a case: the in-line inspection of an 8 inch fuel gas line feeding a platform located in the North Sea. The ROSEN team, together with the operator, selected a free-swimming, bi-directional, UT inspection solution. To overcome the fact that there was no flow possible, the team agreed to use external pumps to propel the bidi UT tool in a liquid batch into the riser, while, at the same time, compressing nitrogen against the subsea isolation valve. Once the tool had reached the desired location, the compressed nitrogen was used to push the pig train back to the launcher.
