For over 20 years, Deepwater Corrosion Services has led the way in offshore corrosion inspection. From our very first topside Level 1 inspection in 1986 to our own in-house research into new subsea-pipeline survey methodologies, Deepwater has maintained a steady presence in the Gulf of Mexico, and over the years, in other world markets. We have written numerous specifications and survey methodologies that have been widely adopted by operators, regulators and third-party inspectors. Our risk-based philosophy makes a Deepwater survey substantially more valuable than simply satisfying regulatory standards; we provide operators with the insight and relevant information needed for responsible asset integrity management.
After hurricanes Rita and Katrina in 2005, Deepwater's inspection crew was called upon heavily for post-hurricane structural inspection and reporting. Since then, we have been active in the post-hurricane market every season. We have also performed hundreds of subsea corrosion surveys and developed innovative pipeline survey techniques for buried pipelines. In addition, Deepwater’s reporting capabilities have continued to expand and evolve with the energy industry; we can now deliver all of our reports electronically via our web-based customer database. A complete list of our inspection services are on the right:
Historically, little or no emphasis has been placed on evaluation of the "resiliency" of the CP system. i.e. how hard the system is working, how efficiently, etc..
Since the measurement of cathodic protection potentials on offshore structures is a regulated activity and must be done, it makes sense to get as much benefit from the survey as possible.
With the Gulf of Mexico's pipeline infrastructure getting older, it makes sense to conduct a detailed, effective cathodic-protection (CP) survey of the entire system before external corrosion can start taking place...
For many years, the offshore industry has relied on the trailing-wire survey method to perform close-interval surveys on offshore pipelines. Many operators have recognized the lack of quality data...
