C-Kore Systems completed a successful campaign with a major oil operator in the North Sea. The C-Kore tools rapidly located the source of low IR on the field and allowed the operator to quickly confirm the health of the rest of the system.
C-Kore’s subsea testing tools are used by operators and installation contractors around the world on both fault-finding operations and new installation campaigns. The Cable Monitor unit confirms the insulation resistance and continuity of the electrical lines while the Subsea TDR unit localises anomalies within 20cm. With C-Kore’s automated units and on-line training, no extra offshore support is needed to run the equipment.
A Senior Subsea Engineer for the operator commented, “We were very pleased how well the C-Kore units worked, and the great support C-Kore Systems provided. The tools are so easy to use, we didn’t need any extra personnel offshore. The testing was completed very quickly enabling us to work out the rest of our maintenance strategy.”
Greg Smith, General Manager of C-Kore commented further, “It was great to have such a successful campaign, being able to perform all the testing so quickly. Our tools are living up to their reputation – easy to use while giving fast accurate results!”
