Tittle:
Internal integrity inspection solution needed for installed subsea pipeline bundle systems on the seabed
Summary:
A Scottish company which designs/fabricates/installs pipeline bundles for oil and gas seeks technology solutions to facilitate the non-intrusive inspection of subsea pipelines. Solutions will enable the assessment of deterioration /corrosion/damage to cables, hydraulic lines and flowlines containing oil or gas. Technical cooperation partners are sought which will provide a solution to enable the inspection of pipeline bundles with minimum impact on field production schedules.
Description:
A Scottish company which has been active in the oil and gas sector since 1962 seeks proposals which will enable the internal integrity inspection of installed Pipeline Bundle Systems on the seabed (existing infrastructure).

The company seek technology solutions which will facilitate the non-intrusive inspection of the pipeline enabling the assessment of any deterioration / corrosion or damage to the structure or materials including; internal electrical cables, hydraulic control tubing lines and flowlines containing oil or gas.

The ideal solution will enable the inspection of pipeline bundles with minimum impact on production schedules.

Two potential solutions are sought:
- the ability to conduct a quick scan focusing on the fully immersive assessment of a small area
- the ability to conduct a detailed follow-up assessing a larger area of the pipeline bundle system

Background
The company has been successfully designing, fabricating and installing pipeline bundles since 1980. This product neatly incorporates all structures, valve work, pipelines and control systems necessary to operate a field in one single product, delivering considerable value and cost savings for a wide range of applications.

The company´s pipeline bundle product is a sealed system which integrates the required flowlines and control systems necessary for any subsea development, and assembles them within a steel carrier pipe.

Attached at each end of the pipeline bundle are the towhead structures, incorporating equipment and valves, designed specifically to meet the field requirements. The system, which has been fully function tested onshore, is then launched and towed to the oil field using the Controlled Depth Tow Method. Final installation includes flooding the carrier annulus with (treated) seawater and lowering to the seabed.

Bundle Components
A subsea pipeline bundle can incorporate a combination of features, including:
- Active heating of product lines
- Corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) materials
- Carbon steel pipe with CRA or plastic liners
- Hydraulic control tubing within Pipeline Bundles, direct to manifold
- Electrical control signal and power cables

Solutions may come from the medical tech industry, aerospace -Y- defence, agriculture -Y- forestry, building -Y- construction, commercial -Y- industrial design, electronics -Y- electronic components, manufacturing -Y- fabrication, materials packaging, packaging. Agree that the solution may be from a technology for use on land which could be marinised for subsea usage.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
Key Success Criteria
· Ability to inspect pipeline diameters of up to 60 inches (typically 27 to 60")
· Ability to assess internal flowlines through seawater
· Lower OPEX for clients
· Proof of concept -Y- system level testing
· Corrosion monitoring / mapping capability
· Condition monitoring functionality

Possible Approaches
- Sensing Technology
- Rapid screening techniques (identifying gross internal changes while passing at speed)
- External inspection on localised areas with increased accuracy from the screening process
- Computed Tomography

Approaches NOT of interest
- Solutions which require dredging of seabed / have significant environmental impact
- Solutions that require intrusive intervention
- Solutions that require dewatering of the Pipeline Bundle
- Solutions that require pigging
- Proposals which are based on friction welding an access solution

The company is looking for concise, non-confidential proposals. The proposal should:
- Describe the technical approach. A strong technical content is preferred and should ideally include; information on the technological readiness of the proposal, any proof of concept data, reference to any peer reviewed publications and potential route to commercialisation.
- Include a description of the responding organisation or team and their experience

Organisations which are interested should:
·Provide a non-confidential proposal
·Include a concise abstract summarising the proposal
·Attach any additional documents

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company is open to various forms of partnership, depending on what is best for both parties and the situation.

Relevant technologies from other sectors may be adapted to enable the inspection of pipeline diameters of up to 60 inches (typically 27 to 60"), and may include:
- Sensing Technology
- Rapid screening techniques (identifying gross internal changes while passing at speed)
- External inspection on localised areas with increased accuracy from the screening process
- Computed Tomography

Companies which have prototypes for other applications e.g. may be considered.
