During installation, a wellhead was impacted by a Blow-out Preventer (BOP), resulting in inward bending of the inner tree hub, deformation of the top and outer BOP mating surfaces of the outer hub, and wedging of the gasket between the inner and outer hubs. The client required the geometry [...]
This project was an offshore trial conducted to test Welaptega’s 3D Modeling technology as applied to SCR FlexJoint inspection. The ultimate objective was to establish a means to better identify areas of concern, and to quantify any anomalies such that their progression can be tracked between subsequent inspections.
The objective was to determine the surface geometry and the curvature of the pipeline in three dimensions. The geometry of the 3D model would be used to determine residual strength using Finite Element Analysis, and the curvature would be used to fabricate a clamp.
The objective was to create a surface contour map of a heavily corroded riser. The 3D model was used for geometric analysis to determine localized depths of corrosion on the riser surface.
The project was performed to determine the relative orientation of mating components in the diverless remote tie-in system for four subsea structures. Leakage had been observed and, although considered unlikely, misalignment of the connection system could not be ruled out.
