C-Kore verifies umbilicals for North Sea operator
Subsea testing company C-Kore Systems has verified the installation of three new umbilicals in the North Sea for an unnamed oil company.
According to C-Kore, the field where the test was conducted is one of the biggest subsea projects being developed in the UK sector of the North Sea.
C-Kore said that its Subsea Testing Tools were used to prove subsea cables during installation and from the FPSO after hookup to the subsea control modules.
The Subsea Testing Tools modernize subsea electrical testing by eliminating the need to use down-lines. The units confirm the health or find faults in umbilicals, EFLs, SCMs, distribution units, and even down-hole applications.
Due to unique low-voltage IR testing technology, the C-Kore units allow testing of cables without requiring isolation of sensitive control module electronics.
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore, said: “This is another application of our technology proving to save our customers time and money by simplifying their offshore testing processes.”
