C-Kore Systems Deploys Subsea Monitoring Tools for Shell
19 May 2016C-Kore Systems Ltd, a UK based company, recently deployed their C-Kore subsea monitoring tools for Shell E&P.
The C-Kore units analyzed the electrical properties of the umbilicals, jumpers, distribution manifold and control modules in the field to locate items requiring maintenance. Using the C-Kore monitoring units allowed accurate data on the insulation resistance, continuity and capacitance to be gathered more quickly than can be achieved with traditional methods, such as downlines or tests from shore. Their wet mate connectors allow the units to be installed subsea, and they are small enough to be deployed quickly using the ROV tooling tray.
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore Systems, "With every deployment, our customers realize the value our C-Kore tools offer them by drastically reducing their testing time. The units are designed to be easy to use while delivering accurate data, allowing the operators to quickly monitor equipment, even when it is subsea.”
