Oceaneering International has launched the Inform Inspect digital asset inspection system, which aims to streamline non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection management.

The tablet-based technology equips technicians, supervisors and managers with the ability to deliver seamless, end-to-end inspection – from planning to review – with standardised data captured into a cloud-based system. Information is instantly available for analysis, enabling more effective planning and optimisation of personnel time onsite. Hardware is rated for onshore and offshore applications and is certified for use in hazardous areas.

Field trials have demonstrated conservative productivity gains of up to 30% in end-to-end inspection times, and the speed and scope of the technology provides major safety benefits, ultimately enabling personnel to spend less time onsite in hazardous environments. The software can also be integrated with a computerised maintenance management system and integrity management systems to increase efficiencies and provide a holistic approach to inspection and integrity management.

Bill Boyle, senior vice president for asset integrity, Oceaneering, said: “Our Inform Inspect technology is transforming the way we plan, enact and measure inspection efficiencies. Our customers can compile, execute and review workscopes in real-time, significantly reducing end-to-end inspection turnaround.”

“The system also provides a platform to pre-plan work, so that all activities that can be completed offsite, actually happen offsite. This is what sets us apart. Our technology is market-leading, field-proven and provides the only global, integrated approach for inspection management to deliver inherent cost efficiencies and safety benefits. We are seeing early evidence that our customers recognise the value that this new system brings as we already have an agreement in place with a global oil and gas operator.”

The Inform Inspect system is the first of a series of innovative solutions Oceaneering will launch under its Inform suite.

The technology will be available through Oceaneering’s asset integrity business, which provides integrity, management, analytics, maintenance and risk management, conventional and advanced NDT and specialist inspection solutions.
