As life extension projects see many oil wells being used beyond their design life, ensuring the structural integrity of critical components to prevent unexpected failures has become more important than ever.
ASPIRE aims to deliver results to the operator in terms of risk, as the product of probability and consequence of failure. This provides the company with inspection recommendations based on the strength response of the corroded conductors. Based on risk information, the company can then decide whether the conductor requires repair or is taken out of service. Through this comprehensive approach to structural integrity assessment, the operator’s cost of inspection will be substantially reduced.
