C-Kore Systems recently deployed their fault-finding tools with a major operator working in the Caspian Basin. The units quickly located the fault in the subsea field, allowing the operator to replace the faulty equipment and bring the systems back on-line with a minimum of vessel time.
The C-Kore Subsea testing tools offer substantial savings to operators by allowing them to quickly locate the source of low IR or high CR in their subsea systems. The hand-held tools allow the measurements to be made directly subsea, eliminating the need for down-lines with all their associated problems.
The operator’s Subsea Controls Engineer commented, “The C-Kore units worked great. They were so easy to use. We found the fault much quicker than we would have with our normal fault-finding techniques.”
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore added, “We are pleased to have again helped a repeat customer, this time on a fault-finding operation. The return of our clients is a tribute to our hard work and the added value our C-Kore units have on their deployment and fault-finding operations, saving them time and money. With our new TDR product coming out, we will also be able to locate the faults on other operations such as the testing of down-hole equipment.”
