NDT Inspection Manual

iii) Conductor Survey

a) Take one (1) wall thickness and one (1) CP measurement on each conductor
just above the nominated jacket level.
b) Carry out a general visual inspection of the conductor and conductor guide
frame assemblies at each jacket level, noting areas of damage or movement.

iv) Flood Valves

Verify from previous installation acceptance / inspection reports the status of flood
valve closure. If the flood valves have not been closed/sealed on previous inspection,
close the valves. If the valve cannot be operated it should be plugged with "splashtron"
compound (or equivalent) or some form of bung closure device fitted


Contact Cathodic Potential Measuring

ii) Contact C.P. measurements are normally required at specified Cathodic Potential
Survey Positions . It is unlikely that Remote CP measurements will be acceptable.
ii) In cases of anomalies (measurements more positive than -800mV or more negative
than -1200mV) further contact C.P. measurements are required (preferably using a
diver hand-held bathycorrometer) at additional locations to determine the extent of
the C.P. anomaly and the optimal maintenance solution.


Inspection of Risers and Pipelines

i) If cleaning is required as part of the work scope, water blast to remove marine
growth BUT NOT COATING from a strip 75 mm in width from MSL down to (-)
15m and record the condition of the riser. Record the depth of termination and the
condition of typical riser coatings i.e. splashtron, neoprene, epoxy, bitumen or
concrete .
ii) Water blast the clamps and check the condition of bolts, nuts and liners. Take
photographs of the clamps .
iii) Take C.P. measurements on the riser, riser clamp and jacket member at each jacket
level using a hand held bathycorrometer. CP Measurements on pipelines should be
taken at the riser elbow, at field joints and all other areas of exposed bare metal.
iv) After ensuring that the riser's impressed current system (if present) is switched
"ON", take Swain Ammeter (or equivalent) current flow measurements (4 x
"normal", 4 x "reversed") on each riser at two locations, Report the current flow
(and direction) in Amps.
a) above plan level II.
b) on the riser elbow / pipeline departure from the jacket.
v) Take elevation and profile measurements to define the riser orientation relative to
the closest structural member and jacket leg.
vi) Take riser elbow wall thickness measurements 150mm apart at the four cardinal
clock positions. The number of measurements taken depends on the size of the
riser elbow. Excavation and/or removal of riser elbow supports may be required to
