C-Kore is helping Australian Oil & Gas operators simplify testing during decommissioning campaigns using subsea test tools originally developed for the UK Oil & Gas market. On a recent mobilization, C-Kore’s Sensor Monitor allowed the operator to quickly prove barriers in the subsea trees for regulatory sign-off allowing the campaign to be completed swiftly and safely.
C-Kore Systems has a range of subsea testing tools used globally by operators and contractors on de-commissioning, fault-finding operations and new installation campaigns. The tools are easy to deploy and are operated without the need for C-Kore personnel being present, providing rapid and accurate feedback. This combination of simplicity, accuracy and reliability introduces significant operational savings to testing campaigns.
Their Sensor Monitor unit interrogates pressure and temperature sensors on subsea wells without the presence of a working subsea control module. This allows operators to maintain safety for all personnel and comply with regulatory requirements. The Sensor Monitor quickly and repeatedly tests, displays and data-logs information saving time on offshore campaigns. The patented tools are self-contained and battery powered allowing them to be left in place if long-term monitoring is required.
Greg Smith, Operations Director at C-Kore commented, “Our subsea testing tools are designed to be simple to use. By automating operations, our customers can now easily perform once complicated testing process without the need for C-Kore personnel being present. Combined with accuracy and reliability, our tools give our customers significant savings on their testing campaigns.
Cynthia Pikaar, Sales & Marketing Director at C-Kore commented further, “The decommissioning market is growing significantly in Australia and the North Sea. It is fantastic to see our customers who first used our tools to simplify their installation campaigns and fault-finding operations, now experience the same advantages on their decommissioning projects.”
