Subsea Procedures

Inspection Programs

By employing the very latest concepts in the production of Risk-Based Integrity Systems, coupled with tried and tested electronic database systems, I can provide systems solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of our clients.

An intelligent and holistic approach provides a complete packaged service that provides for any of the following;

  • Management of inspection and survey programs,
  • Import of inspection data into database systems and production reports,
  • Liaison with clients asset management and engineers through managed anomaly reviews,
  • Update data systems and review conclusion and actions,
  • Management of remedial activities following anomaly reviews,
  • Revision of maintenance of integrity management documentation and schemes to reflect inspection results and changing business criticality of assets.

The capability of delivering this improved service is based on the use of specialised data systems for the subsea and top side structural systems.

These systems also enable me to:

  • Plan scopes of work,
  • Collect data offshore,
  • Produce reports,
  • Track and manage anomalies,
  • Link electronic information files such as intervention reports, images, digital video and structural documents drawings,
  • Track integrity management annotate comments and actions.

Subsea tie-ins, Hyperbaric Welding and Construction Work

I have been associated with some very large projects; the cumulative experience of many years of the diving side of this has accrued decades of experience, coupled with two engineering degrees, lends a degree of implicit detail to any contract.

My experience covers projects in every subsea intervention; from air and saturation diving to deep-sea WROV interventions.


Subsea Development

The ability to work across the entire lifecycle of a subsea development is the key which differentiates me from the rest. Instead of a narrow technical focus on one specific element of a development project, my broad expertise enables¬† an “add value” philosophy¬† across each phase of the project. In this way I can deliver¬† consistency of approach, in terms of systems and organisational compliance to procedures, which ensures that the knowledge from each phase is carried forward to the next phase, non-compliance issues disappear with this type of organisational philosophy.

By minimising risk you maximise return, the six core elements of a project are:

  1. Concept
  2. Design
  3. Procure
  4. Install
  5. Operate
  6. Decommission

To effectively deliver this broad technical capability I maintain a draw down of experience in the ten following disciplines:

  1. Concept Design
  2. Structural Engineering
  3. Pipeline Engineering
  4. Hydrographic Survey
  5. Installation Engineering
  6. Project Management
  7. Subsea Control Systems
  8. Compliance Engineering
  9. Integrity Management
  10. Inspection and NDT
