With the extended use of our C-Kore Subsea TDR units, we have gained lots of experience on fault-finding mobilisations. Rio Oil & Gas 2020 is taking place this week and C-Kore Systems is participating in it with the paper “Locate faults never found before using Subsea TDR”.
The video with the presentation of the paper will be available in the platform of the digital event. Our Sales Manager – South America @Diego Baraldi is attending the event, he will be available for a chat about our technologies via Rio Oil & Gas 2020 platform.

C-Kore Systems, a UK company, recently presented their Subsea Testing Tool technology at the well-attended 1st Subsea & Drilling Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Brought together by IADC, Subsea UK, Subsea World Brazil Magazine and Rio’s state body, CODIN, the event focused on the Brazilian subsea and drilling sector.
Diego Baraldi, Sales Manager for South America, provided the delegates with an enlightening presentation on the range of C-Kore Subsea Testing Tools and how they save time and money on offshore operations, and how the tools are used together to maximise results on complicated work scopes.
Diego said “This inaugural event was a great opportunity for the Brazilian subsea industry to find out more about the capabilities of C-Kore’s tools, by taking delegates through some of our previous deployments the attendees really got a feel for how C-Kore can help them in future campaigns.”

C-Kore Systems was delighted to accept the Innovation & Technology Award at Subsea UK’s awards ceremony last night in Aberdeen. The awards dinner recognises companies and individuals who lead the way in Britain’s subsea sector.
Greg Smith, General Manager of C-Kore Systems commented, “It’s gratifying to receive such amazing recognition for all the hard work the C-Kore team have put into developing and promoting new subsea technology. C-Kore tools have really taken off since we originally released the Cable Monitor in 2015, followed by the subsea TDR and now our new Sensor Monitor. It looks like 2019 is going to be a very busy year as we continue to solve our customers problems by saving them time and money and simplifying subsea testing.”

In case you missed it, here is a summary from our joint presentation with Shell UK at Subsea Expo 2017:
“Shell have encountered low Insulation Resistance faults on installed subsea equipment, but traditional fault identification methods are not always accurate and make finding the causes of low IR labour intensive, time consuming and thus costly. In a drive to seek alternative solutions and utilise new technology to enable cost reduction, maximise the effectiveness and minimise offshore staff and equipment requirements of fault-finding campaigns, Shell held discussions with C-Kore about the suitability of their equipment.
Our first deployment with C-Kore (of four in 2016) was on the Corrib field, we were comfortable trying the tool as it was already at TRL7 and had been used by other oil majors. Although C-Kore was previously used to monitor new umbilical’s during lay, Shell saw its potential as a quick subsea fault-finding tool.
Using C-Kore delivered value to Shell in several ways. Firstly, there was a tangible vessel time saving of approximately 2 days. We requested an engineer for the first deployment, but later were happy operating the equipment ourselves, so there was a personnel saving as well. Secondly, C-Kore gave us an improved diagnostic capability, allowing us to discover additional faults in the field, that would have been masked by the primary fault if traditional diagnostic methods were used. We were also able to gather timestamped diagnostic reports for all the branches and many individual components of the subsea infrastructure, allowing us to identify marginal components for the future IR surveillance and/or proactive maintenance.”
C-Kore Systems and Shell UK will give a joint presentation at the Subsea Expo Conference Thursday the 2nd of February in Aberdeen. The presentation will focus on the use of the C-Kore Subsea Testing technology during intervention operations on Shell’s Corrib field.
Subsea interventions are challenging operations. The C-Kore Subsea measurement tool simplifies the subsea testing process for subsea engineers during intervention campaigns. It provides far more accurate data readings than traditional testing methods and saves customers money by reducing days of vessel time.
Cynthia Pikaar, sales manager of C-Kore commented, “It is nice to have the recognition from Shell that we are a valued partner, providing a service that not only saves them a lot of money, but also gives them valuable information about their subsea infrastructure. By sharing their findings with the rest of the industry, we hope to open up discussions on how we can help other operators.”
C-Kore will be exhibiting at Subsea Expo in Aberdeen the 1st – 3rd of February, where they will have their C-Kore tools on-hand. Come and visit us on booth #118!

PTTEP evaluated C-Kore with excellent results and will be presenting their findings on Subsea Insulation Resistance Monitoring at the International Petroleum Technology Conference, IPTC in Bangkok on Wednesday 16th of November 2016.
PTTEP found “Offshore testing can be significantly simplified with this meter, and overall schedule reduced. This in turn would save substantial costs during offshore inspection and fault finding campaigns. The result of the test by the new technique is more reliable, consistent and cost effective method to confirm insulation resistance in a subsea cable system.”
Different technologies were evaluated by PTTEP, including the C-Kore Subsea Monitoring Tool to determine the integrity of subsea cables during intervention operations. They trialed the patented C-Kore low-voltage technology in the field as an alternative to conventional subsea testing methods.
