C-Kore’s Subsea Testing tools have successfully completed a complex subsea electrical integrity campaign for a major oil operator in Nigeria, via VAYCO Oil Tools and their Nigerian partner, Cranium Engineering. C-Kore was selected as fast and accurate measurement was essential to minimise disruption during Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) on the FPSO and remove the need for any additional offshore personnel.
C-Kore’s self-contained and automated subsea testing units are used on both asset integrity and installation operations to verify the health of subsea electrical systems. The Cable Monitor unit tests the insulation resistance and continuity of the electrical line while the Subsea TDR unit localises faults with an accuracy of around 20 cm.
Sola Adekunle, CEO of Cranium Engineering commented, “Our customer was completely satisfied with how the C-Kore units worked. The ease of use along with the quick results kept disruption to the FPSO maintenance operations to a minimum. Removing the need for additional offshore personnel simplified the whole operation. Our customer will definitely be using the C-Kore tools again”.
Cynthia Pikaar, Sales & Marketing Director of C-Kore Systems continues, “We have a great relationship with VAYCO Oil Tools and Cranium Engineering. They extend our excellent customer support to the local market. C-Kore backs up the local representatives with OEM technical support, procedure writing and result analysis to provide outcomes that the end user is extremely pleased with”.
