Offshore inspection services for pipelines and risers are growing as the worldwide infrastructure of pipelines and platforms ages. Moreover, regulations today require periodic inspections for corrosion in splash zone of risers, caissons, conductors, spoil pieces and sub-sea pipelines because coatings degrade. It is highly recommended that these areas be inspected to detect corrosion before failure and create maintenance or replacement plans. Traditional visual and UT wall thickness techniques are often not practical due to restricted access and protective coating. Advanced NDT methods for inspections are required to limit human intervention in high-risk areas and obtain better inspection data for more accurate risk-based inspection (RBI) monitor programs and life extension for offshore platforms.
