Monitoring tools assess Shell’s subsea kit

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – C-Kore Systems has deployed its C-Kore subsea monitoring tools for Shell E&P at an unnamed operation.

The systems were used to analyze electrical properties of umbilicals, jumpers, distribution manifold, and control modules in the field to locate items requiring maintenance.

This allowed faster compilation of data on insulation resistance, continuity and capacitance than could be achieved using traditional methods, C-Kore claimed, such as downlines or tests from shore.

The tools’ wet mate connectors allow the units to be installed subsea, and they are small enough to be deployed quickly using the ROV tooling tray.
