UK’s C-Kore Systems, has been awarded a contract for BP to purchase their C-Kore Subsea Monitoring tools.
Reportedly, BP tested the tools on earlier umbilical installation projects and will now buy a number of units for its Quad 204 project in the North Sea.
According to the company, the C-Kore units can monitor the insulation resistance and continuity of umbilicals during the complete installation process, even with both ends of the umbilical submerged to full deployment depth.
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore Systems, said: “This is a fantastic endorsement of our technology that a major oil company such as BP understands the benefits of the C-Kore monitoring system.
“Our units provide valuable information previously unattainable, ultimately saving our customers money by reducing their required vessel time on installation and intervention projects.”
