Extending Flare Boom Project to Include Hull Inspections

Share this article

TEXO Asset Integrity was contracted on a project scope that covered flare tip and flare boom inspections. Our client extended the team’s deployment to fit in with offshore logistics and transfers, so we then worked up a proposal to carry out additional inspection scopes of work on the hull of the installation, which was originally planned for 2022, so that we could maximise our time onboard. We were asked to provide a repeat inspection campaign with the client having previously completed a cost-effective, zero-downtime project and they recognised our ability to perform multi-discipline tasks.

The Solution

We worked alongside our colleagues in TEXO DSI who supplied a UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) to support the project. This enabled us to survey the areas in the scope of the project, also delivering thermographic imaging on the flare to show any anomalies. We used an experienced offshore NDT and Structural Inspection team to ensure we delivered a comprehensive solution for the client whilst delivering multiple scopes from a multi-disciplined team.

The Result

We completed this challenging project in a short timescale and with a forward-thinking approach that allowed us to make the most of the time we were allocated. The client’s Facilities Engineering team were extremely impressed by the flexibility of the team and our attention to detail, and this has led to further discussion regarding additional scopes of work going forward.
