Viper Subsea to Present V-LIM at Upcoming DOT

Viper Subsea will reveal its latest innovation ‘V-LIM®’ at the Deep Offshore Technology International conference and exhibition in Aberdeen.

The V-LIM® is a line integrity monitor that provides extremely accurate electrical integrity data across a wide range of insulation resistance levels and can be readily integrated into topsides equipment either as part of a retrofit or as part of a new topsides electrical power unit.

The V-LIM monitors the insulation resistance, polarisation index, voltage, current and capacitance of the umbilical and subsea equipment. It can measure insulation resistance levels down to 1 kilo ohm and up into the Giga Ohm range. It is fully compatible with Viper Subsea’s V-LIFE® technology which was launched last year and will also be shown on the stand at the show.

Viper Subsea’s V-LIFE provides a solution to one of subsea engineering’s most common problems, the degradation of insulation resistance in subsea cables and umbilicals. Like the V-LIM, it is installed topsides with no subsea intervention being necessary. According to Viper Subsea, this breakthrough technology will save the subsea industry millions in equipment replacement costs and subsea interventions. The technology can also prevent early field decommissioning by extending the serviceable life of umbilicals.

“Both of these products are part of our wider electrical integrity product and service offering,” explains Neil Douglas, Managing Director of Viper Subsea. “We are constantly innovating and updating our range of products in response to industry requirements. Our approach is about predicting and solving insulation resistance problems as far in advance as possible which then helps the operators make decisions, have less down time and ultimately provides a far more efficient and cost effective way of working.”

6th Offshore Well Intervention Conference Gulf of Mexico

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment
