12 Start of HOIS Started in early 1980 s. Founded by UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) Dr Bill Gardner Seeking to diversify from nuclear work Exploit expertise in imaging and data analysis Start-up meeting of 10 major oil & gas companies Initially focus on TOFD for defect detection and sizing for oil & gas industry Including complex geometries (node welds etc), sub-sea. Other early projects included eddy current development ESR Technology Ltd Slide 12

13 HOIS - Track-record in successful Innovation (previous projects) TOFD - ideal for internal flaw detection in welds and complex geometries - fast, accurate defect sizing CHIME - solution to screening inaccessible geometries for corrosion. LIZARD - licensed eddy current system MAPS - stress measurement technology ESR Technology Ltd Slide 13

14 Project categories ESR Technology responsible for management of all projects Technical work on projects in Core programme carried out mainly by ESR Technology (with subcontracts if needed) Tendered Programme projects carried out by third parties. Examples: Development of Permanently installed sensors (PIMS) CRIS POD trials ESR Technology Ltd Slide 14

15 Main themes of current HOIS projects Procedures and recommended practices Non intrusive inspection (NII) Computed radiography (CR) Weld root erosion/weld corrosion Evaluation of NDT techniques State of the Art Reviews Experimental evaluation trials Blind probability of detection & sizing trials Performance modelling Development of new inspection techniques M-skip for inspection of inaccessible components (pipe supports, clamps, vessel saddles etc) ESR Technology Ltd Slide 15

16 Main themes of current HOIS projects (cont) Application studies Inspection of FPSOs and flexible risers Development of a magnetic method for inspection of risers Development of new technology Development of permanently installed monitoring sensors (PIMS) Angled beam flexible arrays Development of source of information on NDT Interactive knowledge base (IKB) ESR Technology Ltd Slide 16

17 New NICE facility for specimen storage and trials Now commissioned ESR Technology Ltd Slide 17

18 Selection of current HOIS Projects Non-intrusive inspection (NII) related projects: Development of a recommended practice covering guidance document for NII of pressure vessels Development of NII techniques for difficult to inspect features (e.g. pipe supports) Recommended practice for computed radiography (CR) Recommended practice for inspection of weld corrosion Blind trials of techniques for inspection of wall loss flaws in pipes (CRIS) Evaluation of techniques for bolt, flange and pipe support inspection Development of permanently installed monitoring sensors (PIMS) Autonomous wireless sensors (initially UT) Next generation Flexible ultrasonic arrays Inspection of FPSOs and flexible risers Development of a magnetic method for inspection of risers Technology reviews, including EMATs, Single Sided Radiography and Microwave NDT. Development and maintenance of Internet-based NDT Interactive knowledge base (IKB) ESR Technology Ltd Slide 18

19 Procedures and recommended practices ESR Technology Ltd Slide 19

20 HOIS Project - Non-intrusive Inspection (NII) decision guidance NII Project - Development of a decision guidance process for when to inspect pressure vessels, using non-intrusive techniques instead of conventional internal visual inspection. Highly successful NII seminar in Aberdeen Application of HOIS NII methodology by members to assets Recent extension of document to include guidance on setting inspection intervals after an NII inspection Integration with Mitsui Babcock RP from GSP 235 Now published complete document as a DNV RP - DNV-RP-G103 Download from ESR Technology Ltd Slide 20

21 HOIS Project Recommended Practice for computed radiography (CR) Background: Performance of CR in blind trials did not meet expectations Some relatively large wall loss defects missed CR equipment has high inherent capabilities Procedures in use for in-service CR inspection need improvement Lack of quality control HOIS project Develop improved quality control techniques for in-service corrosion inspection (both tangential & double wall techniques) Collaboration with technical experts at BAM Institute GE Inspection Technologies input Series of evaluation trials of CR equipment from leading equipment vendors ESR Technology Ltd Slide 21

22 HOIS CR RP Scope CR for in-service inspection of pipes for wall loss type flaws Techniques covered: Double Wall Single Image (DWSI) Double Wall Double Image (DWDI) Tangential (source on pipe C/L) Offset tangential (source offset by pipe radius) Two different qualities of inspection: Standard quality for general wall loss CR inspections Improved quality for applications needing higher quality (e.g. detection of small pits) ESR Technology Ltd Slide 22

23 HOIS CR RP - status Recommended practice to be made publically available via open HOIS website Aiming to progress to a European (EN) standard Field not covered adequately by existing radiography or CR standards (EN1435, EN parts 1 & 2 etc) ESR Technology Ltd Slide 23

24 HOIS recommended practice for weld corrosion inspection No international standards or agreed procedures/approaches for weld corrosion inspection Lack of published information on performance of techniques for inspection of weld corrosion Need for a recommended practice covering in-service inspection of weld corrosion (detection and sizing) RP developed on basis of supporting trials and input from members experiences ESR Technology Ltd Slide 24

25 HOIS RP: Main recommendations regarding inspection techniques Preferred technique is TOFD Where TOFD not possible: Use Tangential CR, combined with DWDI to locate the areas of greatest wall loss If circumstances preclude the usage of these two preferred techniques, consider other techniques: double wall radiography (no quantitative through-wall information) specialised techniques for inspection through the weld cap using stand-off (water column) 0º pulse-echo probes. Recommended that these techniques are fully validated with regards to detection reliability and/or sizing accuracy. Manual angled beam UT known to give false positives and false negatives. Inherently inaccurate sizing Document to be published shortly on HOIS website ESR Technology Ltd Slide 25

26 Novel technique development ESR Technology Ltd Slide 26

27 Multi-skip shear wave TOFD (M-skip) for inspection of inaccessible components Concept: Tx Obstruction Rx Use shear waves to avoid mode-conversion losses at reflections Potential benefits Defect detection Accurate measurements of wall loss (arrival time analysis) Application to clamps, pipe-supports, compensating sleeves (probably less well suited to nozzles) etc ESR Technology Ltd Slide 27

28 M-skip current status Novel technique for inaccessible areas developed within HOIS Application to clamps/saddles & pipe supports Can provide quantitative wall loss information Potential for rapid screening of vessels and pipes Very high POD in recent blind trial (97%) Already used successfully on member s offshore plant in conjunction with CHIME ESR Technology Ltd Slide 28

29 Technique evaluation and trials ESR Technology Ltd Slide 29

30 HOIS Project - Sponsor of CRIS Probability of Detection (POD) trials Sponsor of now completed CRIS PoD trials. Internal wall-loss flaws in straight-pipe. POD measured for several techniques for corrosion inspection Some performed better than anticipated Others did not meet expectations Follow-up to understand why Further HOIS sponsored trials of newly developed techniques Most recently trialled technique: GW EMAT ESR Technology Ltd Slide 30

31 HOIS Other current trial/evaluation projects Trials of PA techniques for inspection of bolts and flanges using phased arrays Trials of techniques for pipe support inspection Flange-face inspection ESR Technology Ltd Slide 31
