Pipeline Data Logging & Pre-commissioning Testing
Pipeline Data Logging
OEL’s Pipeline Datalogging equipment is designed to monitor record and report pressure and temperature data during the hydrotest of an underwater pipeline. Its purpose is to secure the data while freeing up the vessel. In addition to logging the information an ROV/Diver readable display is provided to allow random viewing of the test data.
OEL's Gauging Run Integrity Data (GRID) system allows the presence and position of defects along subsea pipelines to be determined by running a simple pig fitted with an intelligent gauge plate and GRID data transducer. The GRID system allows a successful gauging run to be confirmed immediately and remotely without having to recover the gauge plate for manual inspection saving significant vessel time and associated costs.
MEG ARTS® is the latest flagship technology pioneered by OEL. MEG ARTS® (Mono-Ethylene Analyser with Real TIme DIsplay and Subsea Sampling) is a system that provides highly reliable information on the composition of MEG and other chemicals received subsea during pipeline conditioning operations. It is specifically designed for pre-commissioning of pipelines where lines require chemical conditioining using MEG in preparation for transportation of gas. This technology will significantly advance methods available to the pipeline industry by confirming during subsea operations, in real time, that the pipeline has been successfully conditioned, reducing the risk of corrosion or gas hydrate build up during the lifetime of the pipeline.
