Subsea Integrity System Backed by Chevron
An industry project to develop a subsea integrity monitoring system has received report from Chevron, UK technology firm Viper Subsea announced Monday.
The project, which began in October 2013, is developing the V-IR system – which is being used to identify and locate faults in remote subsea electrical distribution systems. Chevron is the latest major firm to join the project after Shell, BP and Total previously committed to sponsor it.
Viper Subsea Managing Director Neil Douglas commented in a company statement:
"The addition of Chevron as a fourth sponsor will allow the functionality of the integrity monitoring electronics to be further enhanced and importantly will also allow us to have an extended qualification testing program of the developed hardware. The additional design work will predominantly focus on developing the SIIS interface to allow the technology to be easily integrated into an active electrical distribution unit.
"We are delighted to welcome Chevron to the project. We now have four of the top five global supermajor oil companies sponsoring the development of this technology. By having such key partners on board will ensure we develop a product that is not only using the most innovative technology available but is rigorously tested and specified to meet the needs of the subsea industry."
