Lloyd’s launches subsea pipeline service
Provider of integrity, compliance and specialist risk consulting services, Lloyd’s Register, has launched a new service to support underwater inspections of subsea pipelines, assets and facilities.
The Subsea Inspection Service will provide project management, consultancy, personal quality control, data processing and management, applicable to remote-operated vehicle (ROV), autonomous-underwater vehicle (AUV) and diver projects.
It will be delivered by the Lloyd’s subsea inspection, survey and asset-integrity specialists, and will be led by Subsea Inspection Manager Andrew Inglis.
“Lloyd’s Register has the significant capability and experience within the subsea sector including management of a wide range of offshore projects and operations across the energy mix,” Mr Inglis said.
“By uniting this expertise and experience with our focus upon safety, quality and cost-efficiency, we aim to be the preferred subsea inspection management supplier for our clients.”
The announcement coincided with research released by one of Norway’s leading strategy consultancies, Rystad Energy, which predicted that subsea installations would increase in production levels form 15 million barrels per day to 35 million in 2030.
Rystad also anticipated a recovery in maintenance, modifications and operations expenditure.
The Subsea Inspection Service will be managed and coordinated in Aberdeen; it has already completed subsea inspection contracts in the North Sea and Trinidad.
