The need for the inspection of pipelines and risers is growing as the worldwide infrastructure related to pipelines and platforms is ageing. Moreover, regulations today require periodic inspections. Corrosion of splash-zone risers, caissons, conductors and spoil pieces of sub-sea pipelines can be severe because coatings degrade and cathodic protection becomes inefficient. It is highly recommended that these areas are inspected to detect corrosion prior to failure. Traditional visual and UT wall thickness techniques are often not practical due to restricted access and limited imformation is obtained using these techniques. Advanced NDT methods are required to limit human intervention in a high-risk area and obtain better inspection data for further analysis so that structural-integrity case studies can take place.
