Aberdeen-based AISUS Offshore has made significant progress in growing its global footprint following the award of 15 contracts and work scopes over the past three months.
The company has reported that 20% of its revenues are now generated by business secured overseas.
Most recently, AISUS completed four J-Tube inspections on a platform located in the Mediterranean Sea for a world leading oil services firm. More than 750m of inspection data was gathered using AISUS’ bespoke crawler-driven inspection system.
AISUS has also completed internal caisson inspection projects in Norway and Denmark, utilising its custom engineered Aquarius system to perform corrosion mapping over the entire internal surface of the caisson. Prior to the launch of this technology, there was no way to perform full length corrosion mapping on subsea and topside structures in the same deployment.
Stuart Lawson, Managing Director of AISUS Offshore, commented: "Collectively, these contracts represent an exciting new phase for AISUS as we look to cement our position as one of the industry’s leading inspection specialists, both in the UK sector and overseas.
“Over the past four years, we have worked hard to create a step-change in both technology and application mind-set to deliver precise inspection solutions, whilst reducing costs, without sacrificing the quality of our products or personnel.”
“The requirements for installations to be cost-effective and environmentally secure are ever increasing and monitoring their condition is essential to ensure integrity. Deterioration can be significant, with serious consequences for installation integrity if not managed properly. By challenging conventional and established techniques, and working in collaboration with carefully selected partners, we believe enhancements can always be found.”
“We understand the need to develop technology that maximises data accuracy and minimises the duration of offshore inspections to satisfy the rigorous demands of the oil and gas sector, drive down costs and, ultimately, increase production.”
Specialising in the inspection of caissons and risers at all stages of the asset lifecycle, from commissioning, through operations, to decommissioning, AISUS has developed market leading technology, including a diverse range of visual and ultrasonic scanning systems.
Looking ahead, the north-east firm aims to establish strategic local partnerships and operating bases in key international locations over the next three years so it can continue to expand, increase its service offerings and develop the technologies which will help sustain long-term growth.
“Reliable and meaningful inspection data must be acquired in order to make comprehensive integrity assessments of offshore pipework and structures. Asset integrity continues to be a major priority for North Sea operators, and through our wide range of bespoke inspection services we will continue to support the industry to ensure safe and cost-effective operations across the UKCS and beyond,” added Mr Lawson.
Established in 2013, AISUS Offshore is an innovative, technology driven company delivering remotely deployed visual and ultrasonic inspection solutions to the global oil and gas industry.
