FlexScout® Flexible Riser Annulus Testing
Flexible riser annulus testing provides a fast and efficient means to determine if the structure of a flexible riser annulus has become flooded due to damage being incurred to the outer sheath layer.
Information from the test, including free volume measurements, can be used for corrosion assessments. From this, operators can re-assess the service life of the riser and if necessary, take corrective actions to prolong the life span of the riser.
Flexlife’s real-time, permanent vent gas monitoring systems can also be utilized to complete automated or semi-automated annulus testing, and Flexlife’s patented FlexScan® technology can be used when the flexible riser’s end fittings are not accessible.
