C-Kore Systems have developed a new subsea technology which will save the UKCS subsea industry time and money.
The new subsea technology was utilised on Shell’s Corrib field. The C-Kore units found the root cause of multiple IR faults, allowing the field to be brought back to full performance. The C-Kore Subsea Testing Tools are used on both fault-finding and construction campaigns to confirm the health or find faults in all types of electrical assets, including umbilicals, EFLs, SCMs, distribution units and down-hole sensors. They help return fields to efficient operation and reduce vessel time needed for installation and maintenance operations.
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore said, “We are happy to be providing such a valuable service to our customers. Our tools simplify subsea testing, saving substantial money by reducing vessel times on operations.”
Tom Moore, Subsea & Pipelines Surveillance Team Lead of Shell UK commented, “The C-Kore technology has proved to be very valuable to Shell this last year. We used it on multiple campaigns, saving us considerable costs while giving us improved diagnostic capabilities.”
Shell UK has signed a supplier agreement with C-Kore Systems, a UK based company which will allow C-Kore Systems to quickly provide Shell with their patented C-Kore Subsea Testing tools.
