NDT & Inspection

Eddy Current Advanced Inspection Services

Customer: Operator

Location: West Africa

Challenge

FPSO Topside Asset Integrity

Solutions

An Operator in West Africa required the inspection of first and third stage, high-pressure gas coolers due to concern with potential stress corrosion cracking (SCC).

Benefits

Glacier Energy provided advanced NDT inspection services and deployed eddy current level 3 technicians to inspect the tubes for defects, specifically focused on SCC detection. Eddyfi’s DefHi™ array probe was used to ensure maximum probability of detection, especially as the client was concerned about potential tight circumferential cracks. Glacier Energy’s speed of response and technical expertise enabled the project to be successfully completed within the tight timeframe and ensured that the gas coolers could return to production with confidence, and prevent further unplanned downtime.
