Offshore inspection services for pipelines and risers are growing as the worldwide infrastructure of pipelines and platforms age. Moreover, regulations today require periodic inspections for corrosion on splash-zone risers, caissons, conductors and spoil pieces of sub-sea pipelines 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 information is obtained using these techniques. Advanced NDT methods for rig inspections are required to limit human intervention in high-risk areas and to obtain better inspection data for further analysis so that structural-integrity case studies can take place.
