““In our vision, ‘Life of Field’ is an IMR engineering support concept that involves a combination of asset management and inspection/intervention. Typically, oil companies have commissioned annual inspections of their subsea assets, but in some cases, these are only performed every three years. And these campaigns have not been generating sufficient information for the industry’s present needs. If, however, you can provide low-cost inspection with a resident Hydrone, you can then start generating large volumes of ‘big data’ that allow you to really monitor any changes in the subsea asset. You can then do preventive intervention or predictive maintenance.”
